Machine Gun Nation

We may never know the motive Seth Ator gunned down 28 people, killing 7, before he was killed by police in Odessa, Texas. But we do know a nation which allows the manufacture sale and distribution of weapons of mass killing, such as the AR style weapon that enabled Ator's murderous rampage, is not doing Job 1 of a sane society....protecting its citizens from random violence. For some years now I've been calling these weapons of mass slaughter what they really are: machine guns.
Gun purists argue with me that's overkill in describing these weapons. The only overkill is the bodies piling up in the American shooing gallery from these machine guns.
