It sounds familiar doesn’t it? A gunman, dressed in body armor, wearing a mask and carrying an assault rifle, goes on a shooting rampage before taking his own life.
In this case, it was in the Portland, Oregon Clackamas Town Center Mall.
What follows will also be familiar. Stories from the survivors. Theories as to what caused the shooter to do what he did. The narrative will be numbingly familiar, but there will be no serious discussion about gun control. The only gun control that Americans seem willing to accept is the one from gun manufacturers- make assault rifles so cheap, they jam before the carnage gets too massive.
