I agree with you . Imagine what we could do with that money we currently spend on "defense"

Sometimes humans don't suck. I was there when the Chancellor announced the scholarships in honor of the fallen students, fully funded in perpetuity. It was an emotional moment.

We had added security and they moved the time of commencement at the last minute, but it was FULL and joyful, celebrating the graduates while at the same time remembering what happened 2 weeks ago.

https://www.charlotteobserver.com/ne...230177974.html

As UNC Charlotte begins to respond to the deadly campus shooting last week, administrators say they have few immediate answers on how the university plans to respond in the long term.


They’re still reviewing campus safety measures. They can’t say what will happen to the classroom where two students were killed and another four were injured. And they’re not set on how to memorialize those victims, even as online petitions on renaming a building gain steam.

“We’re not going to come to a quick fix,” Chancellor Phil Dubois said at a news conference Wednesday morning. “You can always learn something from these sorts of tragedies, and we intend to learn as much as we can.”

But students and parents will see one change at graduation this weekend, where guests will be required to pass through metal detectors upon entering and exiting campus.Ellis “Reed” Parlier and Riley Howell, who were killed in the shooting, will receive in memoriam degrees at ceremonies on Saturday. A special presentation will honor Emily Houpt, a graduating senior who was injured in the shooting, during graduation for the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences.

REMEMBERING THE VICTIMS
Earlier this week, UNCC set up two scholarship funds in honor of Parlier and Howell, while a third fund is raising money for victims and their families.

But anything beyond that is up to a 14-person Rememberance Commission, which has been tasked with considering how to best memorialize the campus tragedy.

The group will first consult with the families of the victims, Dubois said Wednesday, in addition to drawing suggestions from the campus community and from Charlotte residents more broadly at public listening sessions.

Following vigils last week, university archivists have started collecting makeshift memorials from around campus, including candles and flowers placed outside the site of the shooting and at the university’s 49er Gold Miner statue.


As of Wednesday afternoon, over 66,000 people had signed an online petition calling on the university to rename its recreation center after Howell and Parlier. Construction on the center is due to be complete this fall.

Prefacing this with I am pro choice, just offering an explanation:
There are ~4000x more abortions per year than assault weapon dealths. 100% of them "children".

So, seems like an easy decision if you think a fetus is a human and abortion is murder (I don't). Do you go after the 600,000-700,000 abortions per year, or the 100-300 assault weapon deaths per year?

Alabama's play is they know this is illegal but they think they have a good shot at taking it to the supreme court and over turning Roe v Wade.


it's simply politicians doing the bidding of their voters. the only solution to not "allow" it would be to go out and vote for different politicians. politicians that would maybe play the same game but in regards to keeping certain guns out of the hands of certain people

And remember, these are the same morons who will oppose welfare and food stamps, calling the same women they FORCED to deliver an unwanted baby lazy and a drain on the system.
