Many people are deeply concerned about the increasing number of shootings in our society. People are still talking about Saturday's shooting at a shopping center in Tucson, killing six and critically injuring others like representative Gabriel “Gabby” Giffords. Ron Wilkinson, the Superintendent of Schools for Bend La Pine, says something needs to be done. “Goodness as a country, where are we going?
