Political Opportunists

Two school shootings in Kentucky in two days.

After the massacre in Las Vegas, Kentucky's Governor, Matt Bevin, posted on Twitter, labeling those concerned about strengthening and enforcing our gun laws as "political opportunists."

Today, Gov. Bevin and the state of Kentucky are dealing with back to back school shootings that occurred Monday and Tuesday.

One can only hope that Governor Bevin does some deep soul searching. It is unconscionable to me, that he can call those of us who are alarmed, disheartened, and heartbroken over school shootings as "political opportunists."

Our stance on tightening the gun laws has nothing to do with politics, and everything to do with protecting our children.

Our state and local governments need to understand this. After all, isn't that one of the functions of government, to protect our citizens?

To all those political opportunists who are seizing on the tragedy in Las Vegas to call for more gun regs...You can't regulate evil...

Excuse me, Gov. Bevin, but regulating evil is exactly the purpose of creating and enforcing laws. We may not be able to eradicate evil, but we can certainly attempt to minimize the effects of evil doers. 



(CNN) Another high school has turned into a scene of carnage, this time in western Kentucky. Sixteen people were wounded, two of them fatally, after a shooter opened fire Tuesday morning at Marshall County High School, authorities said. Four others sustained various injuries.
