A few mass shootings ago I figured out America’s Hero Problem:

1. America loves guns because
2. Guns make villains and
3. Villains make heroes

Villain: Shooter
1. Every American, thoughtful and prayerful
2. First responders
3. Every proud gun owner...
3... who can tell everyone what he would have done so bravely with his flawless marksmanship in a panicked situation. Oh how the crowds would adore him at the parades around the country. The radio interviews. Free duffel bags of cash. All past errors absolved. Loved, finally.
When there is no #goodguywithagun, there’s no problem. We can make heroes of the brave doctors who were awash with innocent blood. Make heroes of the brave survivors learning to operate their new electric wheelchair. They’re all good media stories.
