Six people were shot dead yesterday morning at a Sikh Temple in Oak Creek, Wisconsin.

This is less than three weeks after 12 people died in Aurora, Colorado, and brings the total number of civilians murdered in spree killings in the US in the last five years to 86. That tallies nicely with the 85 civilians PER DAY killed in incidents involving firearms

I began this post imagining I would round it off by asking how many deaths would have to accrue before gun control reform would be enacted. I’m not going to bother now, because clearly casualties have no influence on a situation with so much power is at stake.

What a dumbass I am.
