Were last night's events effective for either side of the gun debate?

With emotions running high; if our goal is safety for our kids, here are some things we may wish to consider.

Since the school shooting in Florida last week, as a nation, we’ve seen, felt, experienced, and listened to nonstop…

In the emotional aftermath, the students have been given a platform by the media to vent their pain and anger. We’ve seen continual coverage by the media of these grief-stricken students expressing their outrage. Outrage which is entirely understandable. Of course, if I were cynical—which I am—I might point out the exploitative nature of the media’s coverage of these teenagers in order to get ratings and advance their agenda (in that order). But others have already done that, so there’s no need here.
