Recently, Dennis Prager asked readers to think about why, if America has always had guns readily available, have mass shootings only gotten more popular in recent years?
Prager tells readers:

Regarding religiosity, the left welcomes—indeed, seeks—the end of Christianity in America (though not of Islam, whose robustness it fosters). Why don’t we ask a simple question: What percentage of American murderers attend church each week?
