This captures my visceral reaction to the inertia in gun control legislation.
And, for those seeking my more reasoned thoughts:
Prayer is a dialogue with a moral authority about improvement.
Thought is a process of analysing and reasoning rather than blindly following instincts and emotions.
So, true thoughts and prayers in response to an atrocity would be a commitment to understanding the problem and fixing it, not thinking of ways to distract from the lack of a response and praying one got away with it.
And not falling back on the second amendment. A thing that in it’s very name validates that rules can be changed.
