Another day another school shooting. According to Chuck Todd on MTP Daily its number 18 in 2018.
This was a bad one with anywhere from 2 to 14 fatalities at least. I do not think anyone has firm numbers
i changed the channel to CNN and Wolf Blitzer introduced Phil Mudd. I like him he is former FBi, CIA and NSA and can be very witty and sarcastic. He comes across as tough as nails. Today he literally broke down in tears talking about these killings.
He apologized and Wolf as stoic as ever said it happens.
It makes me think this is a man who has seen death, carnage and yet keeps his humanity. These shootings that seem to never stop now between school shootings, a Church shooting and the Vegas massacre. All in less then a year.
What is it doing to all of us watching and observing? Mudd seemed to have reached his emotional end. What will it take for those in power to reach their breaking points.
As a nation of tv watchers and information junkies what is this doing psychologically to us? Are some becoming immune or numb? Are some thinking “payday for gun sales tomorrow and gun company stock” ie money merchants? Are some getting overwhelmed that we feel angry but helpless? Are some so wrapped up in protectng the 2nd Amendment school shootings and massacres like Vegas are a price for protecting the 2nd Amendment.
When will we see Trump or NRA leadership reach their emotional end? Do not answer they never will.
Today and next days we will see the many money merchants and 2nd Amendmenters say “lets pray for the victims”. Until they too reach an emotional end (never) nothing will change.
The Mudd video is hard to watch.
