Today in America, a gun is status among too many. That’s why they call it an equalizer. And unfortunately what’s happening today is that everybody is getting more and more equal because everybody has one.
The massacre in the Aurora movie theater should surprise no one. After Virginia Tech, after Columbine, after Jordan Lee Loughner’s assault on Gabby Giffords, it should surprise no one. And that’s just the latest. Count on it, it’s going to happen again.
