"What the hell is going on in the U.S.? What is wrong with us?"

The quote in the title of this blog is from Gavin Newsome, governor of California after a mass shooting killed 8 in his state.

He's right. Something is wrong with us.

It was the 232nd mass shooting in the U.S. this year--on day 154 of 365!

And yet the Republicans in Congress have no intention of passing stricter gun laws.

Biden called on Congress to act as he lowered the flags to half-staff to recognize the victims and their families.

The flags at the White House have been at half-staff most of this year.

The NRA is supposedly bankrupt. Even legal gun owners want action. Our nation is bleeding out.

But nothing from Republicans.

Indeed, Gaven, "what the hell is going on and what is wrong with us?"
