The Lone Star College shooting is already a faded memory in the media. There were only 3 people injured, nothing of shock value or mystery. At the time of the announcement of the event there was instant live action, full time coverage, the overview air shots showed dozens upon dozens of police vehicles jammed into every open space around the college. As it turns out, the actual event was an argument between a couple college kids and someone pulls a pistol and starts shooting.
Several things come to mind. If this event had happened in a parking lot, a nightclub, apartment complex the response would have been a couple cop cars and maybe a blip mention on the nightly news. Next, there is a police sub station on campus grounds, the area is patrolled by uniformed armed officers and unarmed security guards. So, how does arming teachers in schools, putting officers in schools, or your right to have an assault rifle prevent this incident from happening?
I am roadkill on the information highway. I’m not sure what has possessed me to start a blog but it’s been like Helen Keller in a round room trying to find a corner getting this set up.
Opinions are like rear ends: everybody’s got one, some are bigger than others. This will probably be a place where I vent, verbally wonder, and toss out things in the unlikely event someone is actually interested enough to read what I have to say.
The operational aspects of this blog will certainly be a learning experience. Right now I’m hoping once I post this I can actually find my way back here.
This is an example page. It’s different from a blog post because it will stay in one place and will show up in your site navigation (in most themes). Most people start with an About page that introduces them to potential site visitors. It might say something like this:
