Rachel Maddow made a very sober revelation on the heels of the Navy Yard shooting on Monday.
A gunman opened fire on the Washington Navy Yard Monday morning. Thirteen people, including the gunman, were killed. Maddow lamented the news — and that mass shootings seem to have become “a regular part of our news expectations” — on her show.
The MSNBC host compared the twelve worst shootings in American history in which twelve people or more were killed, and noted that the first six spanned fifty years but the latter six took place over the course of just six years, a trend she described as “the bloodshed of half a century compressed into this blink of time.”
