A gunman singled out Christians, telling them they would see God in “one second,” during a rampage at an Oregon college Thursday that left at least nine innocent people dead and several more wounded, survivors and authorities said.As horrific as that is, and as I am a Christian, I don't think Christians are in any more danger today than they were the day before yesterday. This guy was a mentally challenged loner who had more problems than we'll probably ever know.
Of course, our President, totally out of touch with reality, said that states with the strongest gun laws have less murders. Chicago notwithstanding, who has had 98 shootings over the past two weeks, with the strongest gun laws in the nation. The President revealed himself to be an idiot. One month's butcher bill in his home down dwarfs the murder rate in many states, and Chicago has the toughest gun laws in the nation.
The President aside, the public official who has best been handling this situation is the Sheriff of Douglas County, who refuses to use the goblin's name. Like me, he believes that we should not give the goblin the infamy that he sought, and should forget his name as simply another miscreant that doesn't deserve to be remembered. We should remember his evil, of course, but not his name.
I applaud Sheriff Hanlin for his stance and agree entirely with him. We should bury the goblin in an unmarked grave and tell his family we don't know what happened to the body. He's better forgotten.
