The Dark Night

You've probably heard about the shooting at the premiere for The Dark Knight Rises in Colorado.

And you've probably heard about one of the victims being Jessica Ghawi (a.k.a. Jessica Redfield), a young woman who had escaped harm in a recent Toronto shooting. Maybe you've even read her blog entry about the Toronto incident.

As could easily have been predicted, the story reopened the debate on the necessity of gun ownership, the risks, etc. And that's fine.

I just want to point out that this tragedy, this useless death, wasn't about just one victim. The others are just as important, died at the same place for the same stupid lack of reason.
