A school in Virginia has become the latest in a long list of school shootings today……how many have to happen before things change?
This is not news anymore, it’s just another chapter added to the “we demand the right to carry guns” mentality of the US pro-gun lobby. Other countries have the occasional shooting, but in the US it seems to be just part of everyday life.
I have friends in Virginia, who I hope are safe, I know it’s a big area, and no doubt this area is a distance away from them….but that’s a side issue. I am speechless as to why the US lawmakers are not hounded to deal with this problem. They extol the virtues of good US youth, especially in the military where the aforementioned “good US youth” are fighting to make them richer…….yet are seemingly unable to intervene in the education of those youths.
I ask this of the US people and their lawmakers….
- HOW MANY SCHOOL SHOOTINGS WILL IT TAKE????
- HOW MANY PEOPLE HAVE TO DIE BEFORE YOU “GET” IT????
My heart goes out to the victims and their families of this school shooting, in the feeble hope that it will be the catalyst for a new way of thinking, knowing the pro-gun lobby will fight back……and nothing will change.
Who wants to put a bet on where the next school shooting will be? Insensitive? Yes……but sadly inevitable.
