    The Onion:


    LAS VEGAS—In the hours following a violent rampage in Las Vegas in which a lone attacker killed more than 50 individuals and seriously injured 400 others, citizens living in the only country where this kind of mass killing routinely occurs reportedly concluded Monday that there was no way to prevent the massacre from taking place.

    The Onion have been running this same piece, only changing the number of victims and the locations, since at least 2014.

    I saw this shared on Facebook and didn't click on it thinking The Onion were trying to joke about the situation.
