Not only did we warn them, but we even did a video public service announcement about the problem. Apparently they didn’t get the memo.
As said by Don Wood, “Candles don’t stop violence.”
It is a shame, not only for the first victim that was lost, but the additional victims created by this act of violence. I find it most probable the people in that gathering were not armed. Doubly so since they think there is strength in numbers. However holding a candle while discussing the scourge that is guns on society just labels you as an unarmed potential victim.
If you missed our public service announcement, here it is again.
