BTRTN: What Happened in Vegas Will Stay in Vegas

Born to Run the Numbers on why nothing -- absolutely nothing -- will change following the latest American mass gun violence.

http://www.borntorunthenumbers.com/2017/10/what-happened-in-vegas-will-stay-in.html

Excerpt: "It seems that if the carnage did not literally take place in our own backyard, we are able to compartmentalize, elude, hide, move on, do nothing, and ultimately, forget. Over time, Newtown becomes simply a word that is synonymous with horror, taking its place in a long lineage dating back to Columbine and Virginia Tech, and antecedent to the Pulse nightclub in Orlando...

We must accept that there is a particular chemistry in the United States that breeds mass violence. It is a unique combination of inattention to mental disorders, radical access to weapons of mass carnage, and the influence of big money in politics that prevents any attempt to study, to analyze, and to act. It is not just the killers who are psychotic. An unending epidemic of mass murder requires consenting adults. It is fueled by a society of enablers, co-conspirators, and a nation of bystanders who slow down just long enough to get a good, close look at the horrible collision in the other lane before they speed away.

If we think it is a problem for Las Vegas, Nevada, then yes… what happened in Vegas is going to stay in Vegas."
