Submission + - Another "Active Shooter" kills 7 in Wisconsin Sikh temple (

Penurious Penguin writes: Just as the tragedy in Aurora, Colorado begins inching more comfortably into the past, another "Active Shooter" event has occurred in Oak Creek, Milwaukee, Wisconsin. This time not in a crowded theater, but in a Sikh temple where seven people died including the shooter. How could two horrible events occur so close together? Is it even practical to ask why these things are happening?

Is there a way to avoid these situations? Without further eroding our liberties and surrendering to Big Brother, how can we? Do we put our selves empathetically in the position of those unfortunate victims involved and act accordingly — or do we accept the casualties of an experimental and complex society and move on? What can we do?
