After the heartbreak and agony of Newtown, I had just the faintest stirring of hope that we’d reached a turning point on guns. Maybe, just maybe, we could put aside the intractable cultural battle over guns for just a few moments to put into place a few very basic, common sense controls like universal background checks.
I was wrong.

After a savage attack last week in a gay nightclub in Orlando that killed more people than any mass shooting in modern U.S. history, Connecticut and America are waking up with a gun hangover. They only question is whether it’ll wear off and allow the nation to return to business as usual, or whether the headache and shame are so severe as to effect a real change in lifestyle. I’m hoping for the latter.

I wish I knew how to feel after Orlando. I’ve felt so many things, from shock to horror to anger to grief to a deep, worried sadness that refuses to fade, days later. I’ve seen the people around me react with fury, with political slogans, with hate, and with resignation.
