Piers Morgan has called on the US to just admit that they "don't care" about mass shootings and for once, everyone seems to be agreeing with him.
The news comes just days after yet another mass shooting left people sickened.
Keep scrolling to see the full post.
According to the Associated Press, a gunman opened fire at a FedEx facility in Indianapolis late last week on Thursday evening.
When officers arrived at the scene just after 11 pm local time, it was an active shooter situation, Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department Officer Genae Cook said during a media briefing.
An eyewitness reported seeing the male gunman getting an automatic rifle from the back of his car before going inside the FedEx facility...

And he recalled as cars frantically began to drive away in the parking lot, the gunman started firing at the cars as well as the innocent people inside the building.
Another eyewitness, who happens to work at the facility, told local media they saw a body on the floor, while another said they heard ten shots before alerting law enforcement.
It is understood by the Daily Mail that FedEx employees are not allowed to use their cell phones on the floor of the warehouse and would have been unable to easily dial 911 during the attack.
It has been confirmed that at least 8 people have been killed...
And multiple others have been seriously injured from the ruthless attack.
Upon hearing about the tragic event, comments such as this one poured in.
Eight more families devastated by gun violence. They will be traumatized for the remainder of their lives because someone with no self control was able to get a gun & murder their loved ones.

"This is very heartbreaking," Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department Officer Genae Cook told reports at around 3 am today, just hours after the shooting.

Law enforcement officials in Indianapolis are working a "mass casualty situation," according to Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department Spokesperson Officer Genae Cook.https://t.co/isPNOWspwF
"We have located 8 people at the scene with injuries consistent to gunshot wounds. Those 8 were pronounced deceased at the scene. This is a tragedy."
The gunman has been identified as nineteen-year-old Brandon Scott Hole from Indiana.
Hole was a former FedEx employee and was last known to be working for the company back in 2020.
Police have confirmed that he took his own life by shooting himself following the rampage.
They said Hole was believed to have been acting alone...
And there is no longer an "active threat to the community."
She then encouraged anyone who was at the scene to contact the local police, or for those working in the facility to contact their supervisor to let them know if they are safe.
FedEx has called the shooting "tragic" in a statement, adding:
"We are aware of the tragic shooting at our FedEx Ground facility near the Indianapolis airport. Safety is our top priority, and our thoughts are with all those who are affected. We are working to gather more information and are cooperating with investigating authorities."
But yet again, this has only raised one question: How did he manage to get his hands on a gun?
INDIANAPOLIS METROPOLITAN POLICE DEPARTMENT
The question comes after it was revealed that Indianapolis police confiscated a gun from the shooter and took him into custody last year following suicidal threats.
A report from March 3rd, 2020 found that Hole, who was then eighteen, was arrested and his firearm was removed from the 1100 block of North Huber Street.
The report states that says police seized a shotgun "from dangerous person."
FBI Indianapolis Special Agent in Charge Paul Keenan said this:
"The suspect was placed on an immediate detention mental health temporary hold by the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department. A shotgun was seized at his residence."
"Based on items observed in the suspect's bedroom at that time, he was interviewed by the FBI in April 2020. No Racially Motivated Violent Extremism (RMVE) ideology was identified during the course of the assessment and no criminal violation was found. The shotgun was not returned to the suspect."
So how did he manage to get his hands on yet another firearm which he used to commit such a heinous crime?
The answer is obvious.
Our gun laws are too loose.
And this week, Piers Morgan has hit out at them, as well as American citizens, too.
This is the first time so many people have agreed with the controversial former television host.
In an emotional tweet, he said this:
"I wish Americans would stop pretending to be 'shocked' by the country's unrelenting procession of mass shootings..."

You can’t be ‘shocked’ when something keeps happening that you do nothing to stop.
Just admit you don’t care enough to act, because you love guns too much. pic.twitter.com/DpdE25ncS2

This terrible event is sadly the latest in a string of mass shootings across the United States...
In March alone, 8 people were shot dead in a seemingly racially motivated attack in Atlanta, and another 10 were killed in a supermarket mass shooting in Colorado.
Rest in Peace to all of those who have lost their lives in mass shootings this year.
Our deepest condolences go out to the families affected by these terrible tragedies.
This is a developing story and updates will be posted accordingly.
