ValynPi14 / Pixabay Over the weekend, a gunman went on a rampage in Tuscon, Arizona, killing two and injuring at least one EMT who is fighting for his life. To call it a bad situation would be an understatement.
It’s one of a number of shootings we’ve seen reported this year.

Yet again, we see that gun control doesn’t really have the impact proponents claim.
Now, I’m sorry for the loss of life. That’s terrible and it shouldn’t be ignored.
