Unfortunately, horrifying incidents like this are no longer surprising. Our country is awash in gun violence, and the Republicans in power refuse to take even the most rudimentary steps to staunch the bloodshed. As long as they continue to bow and scrape for their NRA donors and gun fetishists voters, events like this will continue to tear our nation apart at the seams.
UPDATE: the shooter is still at large, according to Al Boe News:
