I guess a couple of dozen casualties and 7 dead is no longer front page news.
The Odessa, Texas rampage on Saturday did not warrant more than a passing wire story in today’s Pilot.
Seems like Dan Hodges of the UK was prescient when he said after Sandy Hook:
“In retrospect, Sandy Hook marked the end of the U.S. gun-control debate. Once America decided killing children was bearable, it was over.”
(BTW, how many shootings are happening in Texas? In the last 20 months or so 65 dead and many times more wounded or traumatized in 4 places: a church, a school, a Walmart and now a stretch of road. A red state where bearing arms is sacred.)
