We’re Becoming Desensitized to Gun Violence

It seems that everywhere you look, there’s gun violence. At some point, it has become a regular event to see it on the news. The only word to describe the feeling when details of the latest shooting flashes across my screen is suffocation. Whether it’s at a school, concert, or mall, you can’t escape the looming threat of gun violence. It’s practically everywhere. When news of a shooting at a video game tournament in Florida flashed
