I think that's what the Repugs want. For mass shootings to just be part of the new normal.

Are they just trying to get us conditioned to high levels of mass violence? Are they trying to get us all desensitized? Is this part of their larger agenda for the country?

I can feel myself becoming more desensitized too.

So, it looks like there was just a mass shooting with 12 fatalities, and it's barely noticeable here

on DU.

I've scrolled over the whole front page, and just a handfull of threads with just a few replies.

I guess maybe we're heading into a society where mass shootings, even with fatalities in double digits, just aren't really noteworthy anymore unless there are other extenuating conditions (houses of worship, children, etc.)

Is this a real trend, or am I full of it?
