Just as with the Los Angeles Airport shootings a few days ago, Common Sense Conspiracy regretfully reports yet another active shooter situation in a Garden State Plaza Mall in New Jersey.
We are not going to report the news here…we don’t do that, unless there is no other alternative.
What we are going to do is to say that this is yet another terrible circumstance where people are locked down in a mall hoping to live, and yet, at the same time, this is another situation that is becoming all too common in the United States of America.
The Democrats hope that these shootings will spur support for gun control. Republicans hope it will spur an uprising against the status quo or at the very least a resurgence of NRA pride.
Could it be that the only thing that these events are really spurring is indifference? The American people are quickly becoming numb to shootings. It no longer even attracts their attention away from their nightly diet of Duck Dynasty or Honey Boo Boo (is that how you spell it?). And yet, we at Common Sense Conspiracy can’t help but wonder if this isn’t a good thing.
As people care less and less about the senseless butchering of their fellow man, is it not becoming less attractive for the perpetrators to commit these atrocities in the first place? After all, if it is fame and to be remembered that they want, well, name the shootings since Newtown. That’s just one year.
This disease is terrible, but it just might be healing itself. As people become more acclimated to having shooters in their backyard, so does the public’s unintentional flurry of accolades on the aggressor decrease. This could be a good thing.
Could we be seeing a day coming when the mainstream media actually prevents a murder by just being the douchebags they are?
Is there a conspiracy in New Jersey? That remains to be seen. If we find out that the mall just ran an active shooter drill (which has happened countless times before), we might have our answer. Otherwise, we hope this person is apprehended or killed quickly, and we will be ready to pick up the pieces when they are gone.
