Another Day in American Life: Domestic Terror against Religious Minorities & Gun-based Mass MurderPosted: August 5, 2012
By now, you’ve probably heard about the death of 7 people in a Sikh Gurdwara in Wisconsin. The FBI will be investigating this as an act of domestic terrorism. There are three gun shot victims in critical condition in the hospital. One is a police officer who was responding to the 911 call and was ambushed by the shooter.
Gun violence in the United States claims so many victims that events like these seem every day. How many people need to die before we can challenge the NRA and its stranglehold on our elected officials?
I can only imagine what horrible details are going to come out about this shooter who was shot dead by the injured police officer’s partner. The crime scene and the perpetrator will be investigated over night.
Today, we should remember these victims and all the victims of senseless gun crimes enabled by a society with a gun fetish masquerading as an appreciation of a constitutional right.

Om Shanti Om.
