I have more than a few colleagues who wonder why I keep writing about photos of gun massacres. That’s because these horrors have become mind-numbingly redundant. The photos of the attack on a country western concert in Las Vegas, however, actually feel different. That is because, after the newest “worst shooting rampage in American history,” the politics are now baked in. As much as the photos are about terror, they are also about stasis. However horrifying they are, we already know they will have no political effect.
