Shopping malls may need to start offering bulletproof uniforms to workers.
It is a ludicrous idea for people who only make the minimum wage in most cases and get few if any other benefits. But it may be the only protection workers may get in this country, which values guns over people’s safety.
The increased frequency of shootings at malls around the country may make the protection an added employee benefit. The latest incident was a shooting at a busy suburban Baltimore mall on Saturday.
Two employees of a skate shop were killed by the gunman, who also fatally shot himself. There as no known connection between the gunman and the two employees who were shot at the Mall in Columbia.
Such shootings, like those that have occurred in bars and taverns, tend to keep customers from returning. Guns and mass shootings definitely have proven themselves to be bad for business.
