Bob Herbert’s latest New York Times op-ed column is entitled “How Many Deaths Are Enough?” I’d encourage you to read it. Here is but a paragraph…

We’ve allowed the extremists to carry the day when it comes to guns in the United States, and it’s the dead and the wounded and their families who have had to pay the awful price. The idea of having large numbers of college students packing heat in their classrooms and at their parties and sporting events, or at the local pub or frat house or gymnasium, or wherever, is too stupid for words.

Rick Perry is, unfortunately, being inaugurated today for his third full term as governor of the state of Texas. He is heavily in favor of legislation currently pending in this state that would allow college students to carry guns on their campuses. Too stupid for words.
