We have a unique problem right now. Until now, the
big-name, high-publicity shootings could be simply identified by
its location, such as the Columbine shooting, the Thurston
shooting, or the Sandy Hook shooting. Now, we have two
big-name shootings, both in Orlando, Florida, and within less than
three days of each other. Singer Christina Grimmie was gunned
down on June 10th, and a whole lot more people were gunned down at
a nightclub known as The Pulse, an establishment well-known for
catering to the LGBT community. It was also popular with
teens that couldn't go elsewhere.
As of recording time, it appears that 49 people dies and another 50 were wounded in the Pulse shooting. In both cases, the shooter died in the shooting, so there will not be anything with the finality of a trial. Official investigations are going on, of course, but the door is wide open for speculation.
And what can we do? We can do what we've always done! They don't sell "Witches Heal" bumper stickers for nothing, you know! And let's see what we can bring about!
