No, we’re not going to do a damn thing about gun violence.

Charleston shooter Dylann Roof

In all our talking about Charleston today, let’s never, ever forget this one tragic fact: The pile of bodies is not nearly high enough for America to ever do anything about gun violence. The only thing America will do is just get used to the pile of bodies, and keep moving back the boundary of outrage. We are too insane, too lazy, too hate-filled and too violent to ever do anything about it. We lack the willpower, the courage and the intelligence to even begin to address the problem.
