Shepard Smith Laments The Never-Ending Tide Of Mass Shootings In America

“Each time, we hear kids cry, parents pray and politicians promise, and then it happens again in America," the CNBC anchor said.

CNBC’s Shepard Smith on Tuesday repeated the same phrase multiple times to ram home the point that mass shootings are a “uniquely American” phenomenon that tragically shows no signs of slowing down.

“Yet again in America,” the news anchor said over and over during a segment centered on this week’s Boulder, Colorado, shooting where 10 people were murdered at a grocery store. The killing spree came less than a week after a gunman opened fire at three massage spas in the Atlanta area and murdered eight people, including six women of Asian descent.

“Yet again in America, innocent families are slumped to their knees in grief, waiting a day later to receive the bullet-riddled bodies of their children and parents, spouses and siblings, slaughtered in senseless gun violence,” the former Fox News host said.

“Yet again in America, we search our souls for answers, beg our leaders for solutions that thus far have not come,” Smith continued, later adding, “Each time we hear kids cry, parents pray and politicians promise and then it happens again in America.”
