Talking Dictionary 1031. No Pulse In Florida


1031. The gunman killed 49 people and wounded 53 others before police put a dozen rounds of their own into him. The President visited the site of the massacre. Politicians, pundits and plain‐spoken people nationwide decried the continued, easy availability of America's semi‐automatic assault weapons. Dale said, "I don't get it. Last year deranged mass murderers killed almost 500 Americans and wounded 2,000. And every shooting got headline news and massive media and public outcry. Now compare that to more deadly 'shots.' Every day, on average, drunk drivers kill 24 people and injure 800 people. Every day, year after year. The most dangerous 'assault weapon' in America is the drunk behind the wheel. Why do madmen with guns shock us, while madmen with keys, who routinely kill thousands more, bore us?" Teresa said, "That's simple. Americans expect to die on the highway. They don't expect to die on a dance floor!" 8.7
