Some brief thoughts on the San Bernardino shooting and all the others we've endured:

  • Ethnicity of the shooters is irrelevant - more innocent lives were lost. That's what matters.
  • Religious beliefs of the shooters is irrelevant. A select minority of people  across the faith spectrum are violent killers. 
  • If there's a mass killing, why are we reluctant to use the 'T' word? Terrorism can be domestic too. And perpetrated by Causcasian males.
  • I still wonder: why are semi-automatic guns 'necessary' for self-defense, as gun advocates claim? 

All for now. Deepest sympathy and condolences to more grieving families and friends.
