Every time there is shooting massacre in America, one of the first questions asked is, didn’t anybody know anything? Didn’t he leave any hints on the Internet or just in talking with friends about his intentions? With the latest massacre in South Carolina, it seems that the roommates of the young killer knew something. They knew he wanted to kill black people and hoped that it would start a race war. Now that the tragedy has occurred there is the question of why didn’t they say something? Isn’t there an obligation to potential victims to speak up? How many troubled young men get a gun for a birthday present? More laws are passed permitting the carrying of deadly weapons in public places and that ready availability of guns is always a factor in these murders. We are a nation at war with common sense. We have a duty to inform so that our next generation doesn’t become the latest victims or perpetrators of violence.
