Jeb Bladine: Silent moments; back to business

Please join me in a moment of silence for 189 mass-shooting victims — killed and wounded — from incidents since June 2015 in Charleston, Chattanooga, Roseburg, Colorado Springs, San Bernadino and now, Orlando.

Thank you.

And now, courtesy of this real-life advertisement, we can all get back to business as usual.

I appreciate this thoughtful commentary, Mr. Bladine. I wish it was required reading for our representatives in Congress.

"Our thoughts go out to the victims" "We will keep the victims in our prayers." "Its too early to talk about gun control." "There is no way to prevent these things from happening." "Let us pray for those that lost their lives." "May God bless the memories of those who lost their lives".......

Anyone else sick of hearing these empty and tread-worn condolences followed by business as usual?
