Nine people gunned down while enjoying a night out on the town.

Twenty-two people gunned down at a shopping center.

Three people gunned down at a festival.

Twelve people gunned down in their office.

Twelve people gunned down at a nightclub.

Eleven people gunned down at a synagogue.

Ten people gunned down at a high school.

Seventeen people gunned down at a high school.

Twenty-five people gunned down at a Sunday church service.

Fifty-eight people gunned down at a concert.

The history of mass shootings in America? No, just a small sampling from the past two years.

What cause did they die for that we remain unmoved beyond thoughts and prayers?

Did they die in vain?

Were their lives, their liberty, their pursuit of happiness somehow secondary to a greater cause?

The price of freedom?

No, we bury soldiers in Arlington that make that ultimate sacrifice.

Innocent civilians slaughtered in our schools, in our workplaces, in our places of worship, in our places of relaxation and recreation -- their senseless deaths are not acceptable trade-offs.

Not in a healthy society, not in a free society.

We have a problem, and it needs amending.
