I feel compelled to write something about the shooting that occurred last night in Aurora, Colorado. I have nothing planned or scripted to offer, nor any profound sociological analysis designed to provide insight into why events like these happen. Likewise, I will neither use this moment to propagandize about supporting gun control, nor engage you in some hyperbolic ideological debate about the causes of mass homicide like you will probably find on all of today’s cable news outlets. Instead, I will simply write that everyone at Sociology Lens offers our condolences to the victims, their families, and the entire University of Colorado-Denver community.
