Breen: They’re concerned for human life? Not really


How easy is it for us to “normalize” murder.

To sit back and mourn the victims of mass shootings but, taking a deep breath, think “I’m glad it wasn’t me.”

Do the Republicans really care about human life when they vigorously endorse anti-abortion but ignore the multitude of gunshot victims? Innocents in schools, churches, markets, theaters and social venues. Blatant hypocrisy.

Our image as a sane nation only seems to diminish when its citizens are like “sitting ducks.”
