The recent killings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, are tragically shocking. However, it’s nothing new. And, sadly, they will soon be forgotten history when more of the same and worse continue to happen.
While fervent advocates for gun control march in the streets, dozens of daily murders will happen in New York, Baltimore, Chicago, Los Angeles, Mexico City, Kabul and elsewhere in our violent world. It isn’t only the availability of weapons, drug culture or racial hatred that cause the atrocities.
Whether it happens with just one gun or massive wars, it is and always will be a stark reality. Mankind’s mentality is plagued with the continuing insanity and obsession of senseless murder and self-destruction.
