Here we go again. Another mass shooting, this time at Umpqua College in Roseburg, Oregon.
There is NO WAY that these two sentences should have a reason to be used together, “Here we go again.” and “Another mass shooting…”. But, alas, yes. It has happened again.
Details still sketchy. Recent update:
UPDATE 3:01 pm: KATU reports ten people are confirmed dead. Grace Mercy Hospital in Seattle is reportedly treating six people, with more expected. Meanwhile, students and faculty at Umpqua are being evacuated from the campus.
Tweets from a student on campus.
Douglas County Commissioner Chris Boice told CNN that the shooter is in custody. It was not immediately clear whether the shooter was injured.
And a reminder…. the 46 Republicans who said “no” to gun law reform after the Sandy Hook Massacre. Until we start reforming our gun laws, then get used to these three words used in this order, “another mass shooting.“
Statistics: Now, young people killed by guns now rivals young people killed in auto accidents.
