Instead of standing out as horrific events, mass shootings are becoming more commonplace. Those events compel us to ask, are we on the edge of mass shootings infiltrating our daily lives?

If contemplating that causes your head to whirl the way it does mine, you must feel overwhelmed by the frequency of mass shootings in our nation.

"Apparently, guns were not as numerous in the Wild West as we were led to believe." Nonsense. Everybody was armed in the Old West since they'd be fools not to be, with outlaws infesting the deserts and rural areas and the Indian wars still in progress. "An armed society is a polite society," Robert Heinlein once said, and the Old West proved it.
