    As soon as I heard about this, I wondered how long it would be before there was a candlelight vigil.
    Nothing stops this insane gun culture in America like the pointless act of  standing out in the cold with a stupid candle. Just like the call for silly pointless prayers after people are already dead and maimed. There have been 181 major school shootings since Columbine, all this prayin'seemingly  hasn't helped a lick and won't. Nothing fails like begging nonexistent gods for help. If we want this shit to stop, people need to act and actually hold those responsible accountable. If an elected official won't vote for reasonable gun control and stand up against the NRA, do everything you can to get them out of office. Anything less is just condoning the status quo. Maybe we need to treat this like some single issue voters in the past have approached abortion or prohibition.

    Just another day in Oceania.
