In Texas, we are not blaming guns for the school shooting

Student shootings are horrible events, especially for those who remember dropping off children at schools that look very much like the one near Houston.

Nevertheless, it’s good to see that we are not blaming guns or letting left-wing groups use high school students to carry their message.

The Los Angeles Times noticed the difference between South Florida and Houston in this report:

There was no outcry against firearms in Santa Fe after a gunman killed 10 and wounded 13 others Friday.  Guns didn’t come up at a prayerful vigil attended by 1,000 people that evening.  On Saturday, there were no protests, and local leaders don’t expect any Sunday.

But three months earlier in Parkland, Fla., the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School that left 17 dead unleashed a movement, with students and parents of the dead organizing, protesting and calling for expanded gun control laws. 

Their activism led to school walkouts nationwide, voter registration drives and massive demonstrations, including the March for Our Lives in Washington.
