As details of the mass shooting in San Bernardino, California, continue to emerge, Americans are again trying to make sense of a mass shooting.
The attack in San Bernardino — which was the second mass shooting of the day, and the 355th this year — reignited a national debate on terrorism, gun control and public safety.
New York Times reporter Liam Stack joined the conversation Wednesday night, posing a simple question to users in light of the day’s events:

Within a few hours, Stack’s tweet attracted hundreds of responses that demonstrate a range of emotions and offer a glimpse into the mind of users across the country.
