We should all be nice to each other—is the BS we get fed all our lives.

But let's get real.

Some people are jerks and being nice to them is both a waste of time and stress inducing, but mom said to be polite.

It's another ordinary day in America.

So of course that means we've already had a mass shooting or two before brunch.

And aside from the mass shootings, the number of single gunshot wounds or deaths is too high to count.

So let's discuss the aftermath.

Let's hear from the people who have faced the barrel of a loaded gun, or were just a casualty going about their day.

"Bless your heart."

That's a big one in the South. Means... "I like you, but Lord are you missing marbles."
