Episode Info: Right about 10:30 AM on October 1st  2015, a student enrolled at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg Oregon, walked into his creative writing classroom and shot the assistant English Professor, Lawrence Levine, at point blank range with a handgun he’d brought with him. Accounts from witnesses then relate that the shooter ordered the remaining students to the center of the classroom whereupon he then asked their religious affiliation. Fellow student Kortney Moore, 18, said she saw the teacher of her Creative Writing 115 class get shot in the head at the college’s Snyder Hall before the gunman started asking people to state their religion and opening fire, the city’s News-Review newspaper reported. The Umpqua Community College shooting was just one in the latest mass shootings which have recently plagued our country. People are right to be concerned about this senseless violence, but seem confused as to where to place blame. Politicians have seized upon their sorrow, grief and confusion and have stealthily redirected their anger and pain at the tool used to commit these murders rather than the actual cause. The public at large, too overwhelmed at the senseless death, simply goes along with the prevailing narrative fed to them by their "leaders" which is: “If there were no firearms, there would be no death.” Join Chase Rockwell, Lou Rodgers and Mark Wilson as they discuss this contentious issue.Read more »
