Sanitizing mass shootings has allowed people to say, "How awful!", and then just move on with their day. Their lives. Until the next one, when they will exclaim, "How awful!", once again. And again, and again, and again.

I find it ever so much more disrespectful to think mass shootings are something we have to live with than it is to show the country just what a bullet-mangled body looks like.

Saying it is something we have to just live with is dismissive of the problem.

One of the scariest sights of my childhood was seeing a bullet hole in a man's body. I saw the gun come out. I heard the crack - not even a bang - a cracking sound. And I saw the puckered hole in the mid-lower right side of a man's back, a kidney shot. Looked almost like someone stuck an ice pick into his back and pulled it back out, except the skin didn't pucker outward, it was slightly indented. Bruising around the wound kept getting bigger. The bullet didn't exit.
