and it was officially removed this morning. Good news.
Well kind of. the ESPN article states that the trustees are thinking about relocating the statue to their sports museum or the library which still bears his name. The Happy Valley cult will just have to make a different pilgrimage then.
Alright to bring a little light into this situation: Redfield's blog only had two entires. One is the Eaton Centre post she made three weeks ago, the other was an article last August entitled I Like My Hockey How I Like My Men. Even though the first time I saw her was today, it's obvious that she was a bright, beautiful young woman. (I take a little offense with the Canucks being relegated to a buddy, but what am I gonna do ). Remember the way she and the other eleven lived, not as they died. RIP.
I can probably guarantee that if the killer had just a handgun or hunting rifle, he would not have killed twelve people. We can't stop killing, but we can stop or prevent mass killing. Additionally, if anyone's on Twitter #RIPJESSICA.
I wouldn't guarantee it, but the odds are good. Realistically, a good shot with a handgun can kill a row full of moviegoers without much effort if that's what he wants to do.
Let's not forget the massacre that happened at V-Tech was done with 2 handguns and had a much higher death toll. I think gun control is one of the issues that is hard to politely and calmly talk about in person much less the internet so I wont go more into it but I just wanted to point out mass casualties can happen without automatic riles or semi-automatic assault rifles.
but wasn't the Va Tech shooting done across a large campus? Weren't groups of people caught off-guard during that? There's also the fact that one of those killed at Va Tech was the shooter himself.
