— 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.

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.

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.

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