Unfortunately another tragedy has just hit our nation – this one in uber-liberal Oregon, with strict gun control laws.
A gunman opened fire on Oregon’s Umpqua Community College. Reports are still being updated, but at least 15 people are dead and another 20 could be wounded. At least the shooter has apparently been detained – no word yet on whether he is still alive.
UPDATE: Scanner reports indicated the suspect is down. Early reports indicate at least 15 people are dead. #UCCShooting

Of course, this will bring out the usual stories about gun control. In fact even CNN has already started posting stories about why the U.S. has so many mass shootings.
In any event, let us pray for the victims and their families.
