In recent days, romaine lettuce has been pulled from shelves, is no longer available to buy, and the CDC issued warnings against it after four people died. Hundreds of mass shootings and thousands of dead Americans, however, has not budged the NRA nor the Republican politicians who depend on them for campaign donations.


In Alabama, yet another shooting happened on Black Friday.

‘The incident at the Riverchase Galleria in the Birmingham suburb of Hoover started with a fight between an 18-year-old and the 21-year-old gunman, police said. The confrontation occurred in the mall shortly before 10 p.m. (11 p.m. ET), near the Footaction and JC Penney stores on the second level.’


Police said that they do not believe the 18-year-old was armed. Both he and another shopper in the mall were injured, the other just a child.

‘A 12-year-old girl described by police as a bystander also was shot once, but it’s unclear by whom, Rector said.

When the gunman tried to flee, a police officer working security at the mall shot and killed him. The current condition of the two injured victims has been reported.
‘Both of the injured were taken to hospitals. The girl has had surgery and “does not have life-threatening injuries,” Rector told CNN. Her condition was stable Friday morning, police said.
‘The injured 18-year-old was in serious condition when an ambulance took him to the hospital, police said.’

At some point, the issue of gun violence will have to be addressed. Until politicians stop living in the pockets of the NRA, the conversation cannot even begin.
