Topeka remembers victims of gun violence

January 9, 2012


— Topeka had two ceremonies Sunday to remember victims of gun violence nationally and locally.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reported that Bias Busters and the Stop the Violence Memorial Committee were holding a tree dedication ceremony Sunday night in memory of Corey Brown.

The 39-year-old Brown was an owner of a shopping center. He disappeared Tuesday, and his body was found Thursday morning in Douglas County. Authorities are investigating the case as a “suspicious death.”

The Brown v. Board of Education National Historic Site also was putting on a candlelight vigil Sunday night. The vigil was being held in conjunction with a national effort to draw attention to victims of gun violence.

Gun Violence? Is that really any different than run of the mill violence?

The NRA is holding a shoot off in remembrance of gun owners victimized by words fabricated for political reasons.

I'll be firing my shotgun towards the sky that's for sure.

Well, if you were truly a responsible gun owner, you would fire into the ground or a target. Remember the old saying - What goes up must come down.

There was just a case in Florida that I read where a child got hit on New Years because of a bullet coming down from celebratoy shooting.

I will only be firing my guns at people who deserve it.

If you knew anything about guns you'd know its perfectly fine to shoot a shot gun into the air as falling scattered pellets will not cause fatal wounds.
