Just a week ago we talked in this space about the conspiracy theories that led to another deadly shooting in the United States. Well, it’s been a while, again, for someone shooting indiscriminately and killing dozens of people, in this case elementary school kids, in Uvald, Texas.
Writing about the shooting in our neighbor to the north is, unfortunately, a state of rinse and repetition. Names change and numbers change, too. They are different people who lose loved ones and will never feel comfortable again.
But everything else remains the same: there are periods of weeks when nothing is heard and then the well-known alert returns. Not for nothing, nobody teachers He sent a message home from the school as if it was part of an established protocol: “There’s a shooter at school, I love you,” he posted on social media.
There are also exercises. Children already know what to do if they hear the alert. They know how to hold back and hope the worst doesn’t happen. go to school in United State She lives in constant fear that the bullet will end your life.
Likewise, hollow messages are heard from politicians, who always quote verses from the Bible as if to clear their consciences. In the worst case, that’s what it is, to say the least, it has to do with mental health, which is one of the biggest problems in American society. But no more.
In the meantime, the weapons remain the same. Indeed, as it seems, the political instinct in the United States is to demand … more weapons. There is no shortage of politicians — local, federal — who say the solution is to give teachers pistols and rifles to defend their students. If everyone, including the students, were armed, none of this would happen.
Nor does it lack the world of conspiracy, which confirms that these massacres are committed by secret agents in an attempt to prevent the right to bear arms. If this is the case, guns will be banned in the United States at least some time ago Columbine.
As usual, there are those who say “tragedy should not be politicized” when talking about it. All so that the elephant in the middle of the room does not discuss.
But even when politicians agree, which is less and less, there is no legislative breakthrough that leads to any kind of action. Suppose without conceding that the problem is merely mental health: even then there is no consensus or money to attack the cause. On the contrary, it is referred – without evidence – to video games. There is talk – without support – of the disintegration of the family core. But no kind of solution was ever offered. just talk.
A few days later we heard again those terrible words: “School shooting.” For some of us it still generates some kind of emotion, but for those who are already accustomed to it – as we did here with our daily savagery – there is no longer any feeling after the tragedy.
The only thing left is the phrase we mentioned last week, which doesn’t even have time to dust because of the spelling site onions It should be posted every two days “There’s no way to prevent these things, says the only country where they happen on a daily basis.”
Of course there is, but our neighbors insist on self-destruction because they proudly, and without any mind, practice what kills their children as if it were uses and habits.
