A tribute to Orlando

This weekend the Sktchy app paid tribute to the victims of the massacre in the Pulse nightclub in Orlando with the Weekend Art Extravaganza themed #WAXpulse. Artists around the world united in support of those who lost their lives in this terrible shooting. 

Our world seems to be overcome with hate and bigotry. Living here in Australia where measures have been taken to curtail widespread gun ownership, we find it hard to understand  America's reluctance to curtail the sale of high powered automatic weapons. It seems that money talks louder than human life.

How many more mass shootings are needed before something is done?
