Gun Violence Kills Two School Students
Two 15-year-old female students were killed in a shooting today at Independence High School in Glendale, Arizona. A weapon was found near them. Somewhere the NRA is toasting their hard work to make sure everyone has their Second Amendment rights while two families are now planning to buy coffins.
