“Somehow this has become routine”
Oregon felt the pain the U.S. has become far too familiar with in recent years, with yet another school shooting leaving 10 dead on campus.
Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, OR was the target. The shooter, identified as 26-year-old Chris Harper Mercer, open fired in multiple rooms on campus killing 10 and wounding up to ten more, reports say.
This comes after more than 30 mass shootings have happened in the U.S. since the Columbine shootings in 1999.
President Obama once again had to take to the podium Thursday evening to address the country and the families who lost love ones in Oregon.
But rather than a sad approach, the POTUS sounded angry. Angry that our country continues to allow things like this to happen. Angry that we allow organizations like the NRA to push agendas. Angry that we are the only leading nation to have this problem, yet we’re too stubborn to change the laws.
President Obama’s speech was a cry for help. And it’s hard not to agree with him.
At the end of the day regardless of what your views on the 2nd Amendment are, you have to admit, this has gotten fucking ridiculous, and we as a country need to do something.
