Local civilians lined the street onlooking at the event behind the yellow police tape.

List of Mass Shootings in the United States – We Cannot Become Desensitized
The cartoon is depicted to illustrate that we cannot become desensitized to the horrific reality of the frequency in the U.S. of Gun Violence and Mass Shootings. We Cannot Become Desensitized. We need to care about Gun Violence and Mass Shootings because innocent lives are being erased. This kind of violence doesn’t occur in other modern countries BUT IT IS HAPPENING HERE AND MUST BE DEALT WITH.
Our country is so out of control with Gun Violence that frankly every single adult person who is mentally stable should consider the pros and cons of being armed with a concealed permit. Look at these shootings and realize that many, most of the victims were shot before the Police responded. I am not promoting vigilantism but the evidence is there that we live one very violent society. I doubt that even being self armed could prevent half of these tragedies. I would imagine being armed with handgun would prevent some of these from occurring assuming the perpetrators were deterred or an innocent person who get a shot off in self protection. If you are unarmed in the United States, are threatened, it may not come to even needing a firearm to protect oneself. Having a gun with concealed carry rights is an awesome responsibility. It is definitely not best for everyone to own or a have a gun on their persons. It is even arguable that carrying a gun on concealed permit could escalate a situation to end in shooting that might have been avoided. Criminals who choose to carry a weapon during the commission of a crime are not deterred if the victims are armed.
