What's to Blame for Mass Shootings? 

A handy flowchart for not addressing guns

The recent mass shootings have been deeply painful for all of us, and by "all of us" I mean gun manufacturers, lobbyists and our staunch allies in government. Even without the burden of a human soul, it's exhausting fielding questions about whether the endless stream of tragedies in America is somehow linked to the flood of firearms we've worked so hard to keep flowing. And so we've created a flowchart to help you pivot away from damning statistics and headlines, and toward tried and true scapegoats. Then we can all get back to shrugging helplessly at the inevitability of innocent people being mowed down in schools, churches, offices and markets. These are troubled and violent times, after all. We're gonna need more guns.
