If hundreds of other mass shootings are any indication, nothing.
Sorry. I mean, "thoughts and prayers."
Also bicker. A lot. It's depressing how little really changes, even just going off of the reactions of friends. At this point, we'll just take from tragedies like these whatever will reinforce our existing beliefs. At least there seems to be more of a concerted effort to not only mourn, but also get out and help however ordinary people can (such as donating blood).

No joke, but some jurisdictions have banned that sort of thing. There are many places where you cannot obscure your face in public. They were measures to stop the KKK from being able to hide their faces.
Check the local laws of the places you are visiting here in the states. If you have proof of your medical condition with you, you should be ok. I'm sure no law enforcement would actually accost you, but to some it might look suspicious.
You should be fine. Lots of people cover up from the sun out here in the summer. Several of the guys I coach high school football with have hats like that, they never bother velcroing the front together. In San Francisco you may want to invest in one of these (carhartt.com) it gets windy and chilly there.
No, they're being denied the right to claim each other on life insurance policies, to visit each other in intensive care, to arrange each other's funeral, etc., etc., etc. - all in the name of close-minded bigots who hide their hatred behind the Bible.
