Obviously last month’s shooting in Tucson, Arizona involving Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was a tragic event. Violence should never be used to convey any type of political message, and this was no exception. However this shooting wasn’t political – it was the direct result of a madman with a gun. That means there is virtually nothing that could have been done to prevent it because the actions of madmen are unforeseeable.
Good luck telling that to State Representative Chip Limehouse though.
Last month, the Charleston “Republican” proposed legislation that would force campus police departments in South Carolina to report all students who have been expelled, suspended or who dropped out due to “disruptive or anti-social behavior.”
