BREAKING: Four Victims Shot At San Bernadino Elementary; The NRA Is Covered In Their Blood (VIDEO)

Updated, 4:25 pm, 4/10/2017.
It has happened again. A gunman claimed four victims in an elementary school shooting.

The toll isn’t as high as at Sandy Hook. But any toll is too high — or would be too high in a humane society.

America sits and looks on. Again.

This time, it appears to have been a murder/suicide. Details came in slowly as an investigation unfolded. The latest report on the shooting is that a man named Cedric Anderson of Riverside went to the special education classroom where his estranged wife taught and shot her.  He then turned the gun on himself.

But in the process, two students — who were standing behind their teacher — were also wounded and airlifted to the hospital. An 8-year-old boy named Jonathan Martinez was pronounced dead at the hospital. The other student, a 9-year-old, is in stable condition.

There are more victims, of course – all the other students, teachers, and staff in the school. Once more, innocence has been shattered. Lives have been lost.

America sits and looks on.

The National Rifle Association sits back and chortles at the fact that the loss of innocent lives won’t make a dent on the influence in this country of their organization or the weapons manufacturers that prop them up. If anything, gun sales will probably soar, because that’s what America does.

North Park Elementary School was evacuated and students herded onto buses, transported to a safe location for pickup by their parents. Cajon High School was where the children were moved to, but in the confusion, a parking lot at Cal State University, San Bernardino was also given as a pickup location. 

San Bernardino Unified School District Superintendent Dr. Dale Marsden cautioned parents that getting their children could take up to three hours because authorities were interviewing students and staff members.

What has come clear from reports is that, once again, we’re confronted by images of children who were traumatized by a shooting being escorted out of school and onto buses in the hope that they can be, and feel, safe.

But we all know they won’t be safe unless and until the NRA and weapons industry are defanged in this country. We all also know what happens to efforts to stop the shooting.

America sits and looks on.
