Fascinating Look Back Here

TPM Reader MP has a fascinating observation here about how the gun culture has changed us, and not in a way you might expect …

I lost a cousin in the Tree of Life massacre, so I’ve thought a lot about violence and guns in my own America. The Tree of Life massacre was the worst attack on Jewish people in American, nay, Western Hemisphere history. The weekend’s attack in El Paso was, according to a NYTimes op-ed, the worst attack on Latinos in modern history. I certainly don’t believe that its coincidence that these two “worst attacks in American history” took place during the Trump administration.
