Another mass shooting, another sad day in America.

Three people were shot to death and 16 wounded Wednesday before the gunman killed himself at the Fort Hood Army post in Killeen, Texas. It is the same post where Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan opened fire in Nov. 5, 2009, killing 12 soldiers and one civilian and wounded 30 other soldiers and two police officers.

Hasan, who is in the Fort Leavenworth prison, was convicted last year and sentenced to death.

The nation now mourns the latest mass shooting by gunman Army Spc. Ivan Lopez. People will cry and wonder why — again.
