These are the Administration's statements in response to this incident.

It is their timing, not mine.

but a discussion on such things is surely coming.
Yeah, but I'm sure he wanted to get it out there asap so he doesn't lose more support from that faction of pollsters.

This is just horrible. How many times do we have to let our kids get killed. Honestly, when I read the early reports of 1 person killed, it didn't really affect me too much....as I'm immune to these reports now. That's just horrible that I can even feel (or lack of feeling) this way.

Of course it's horrible that anyone was even injured, but it didn't start to really sink in until the reports of teens to the twenties of deaths.

I agree though on not debating gun control....YET. Now is the time to mourn the loss. Then it's time to really think about what "bearing arms" really accomplishes in this country.

i understand.

as always, they look at how each issue can be framed for the consumption of their base.

but let's not, yet, engage them.

All I can say is, I still can't believe what is world is coming to...

My prayers to those out there who saw the shooting/know any victims, or just feel as sad and angry about it as I do...

I also, do not want to debate the 2nd amendment in this thread

but, I think it is fair to include what
the school leaders, virginia politicians, and the whitehouse has to say about this

I'd expect nothing less from this administration. Unfortunately, the next few days will be nothing but debating (albeit good reason) and yelling at whose fault this is.

Sorry to hear about your friend. I hope your friend will be ok.

As far as music -- I think it's perfectly appropriate to turn to music for meaning and comfort in times such as this.
