Two-hundred fifty

We did it, America. We reached 250 mass shootings this year. Actually, we hit a new record: two within 24 hours.

How much higher or should I say lower are we going to go?

Normalized, broadcasted, sensationalized.
What you call a right, I call dangerous.
It’s all out in the open now.
But what happens when you arm it?
The hate leads to thoughts and prayers.
Lives hang in the balance, but all I see are shrugs.
I see hung heads and tears. I hear apologies.
But no actions.
What will it take? What will it take? What will it take?
