Gun violence seems to be a recurrent problem in American society. Just yesterday in West Virginia, not far away from where the two journalists were tragically gunned down, a 14-year-old boy held his classroom at gunpoint.
From The Guardian:
A 14-year-old boy held 29 students and a teacher at gunpoint in a West Virginia classroom on Tuesday afternoon before he released them after negotiations and surrendered, authorities said.
It was apparently to the credit of the teacher that the boy was able to be talked down and no one was injured.
“The teacher did a miraculous job, calming the student, maintaining order in the class,” said Jeffrey Woofter, Barbour county school superintendent. The teacher’s name has not yet been released.
As the case involved a juvenile, records and his identity will not be made public.
When is America going to resolve the issue of gun violence?
