I have no idea why Sheriff Hanlin felt the need to write to Joe Biden, but something must have set him off.
The irony of his words hit home tonight. Sheriff John Hanlin is the sheriff of Douglas County where there was a mass murder at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon.
Sheriff Hanlin must be feeling rather impotent tonight as 10 students lay dead and 7 others are hospitalized with life-threatening wounds from a crazed gunman with 4 guns opened fire on innocent people, just trying to get an education.
So we now need to ask ourselves as Americans how many more lives have to be lost because some bat-shit crazy man decides to randomly blow away innocent people to please whatever demons possess him. I refuse to believe that there are no answers. Other countries don’t have mass murders every other week.
President Obama is right about numbness. I have almost become desensitized. How many more school shootings need to happen? These school shootings make a good argument for home schooling and distance learning. They also make a strong argument for change regarding how we purchase and store our guns in this country.
