License to be ironic

This struck me as odd, for 32 reasons.

If the NRA's beloved handguns were impossible to get, it's safe to say these Tech students and professors would still be with us.

It's so sad. An tragic and unexpected loss. So much in today's society is unnecessary...if only people would stop to think before they act...or if they could offer help instead of looking away. When you have done for the least, you have done for Christ. It's so simple and the hope it restores could be endless.
