I'm still not sure we're doing enough to reckon with how close we came this week to livestreamed mass assassinations

It’s because people don’t want to believe it. But it was close — if the serious guys, those with guns, bombs and zip ties, had made in a few minutes earlier it’d be a very different world now.
Pelosi and Pence would probably be dead, and likely dozens of others. The US would be under martial law and would stay that way for a while.
Just got lucky, is all. Won’t happen again.
