The news is always hard to take after a mass shooting.
In the case of Las Vegas, a gunman opened fire on a crowd of thousands from a perch above an outdoor concert, killing 58 people and injuring more than 500 others.
It’s the deadliest such event in recent U.S. history. And although mass shootings are relatively rare, it can feel like they happen all the time because of the level of carnage and the usual “soft target” settings they occur in.
The gun debate will undoubtedly flare up again, but in the aftermath of Las Vegas, we check in on how the country is feeling following another mass shooting.
