I made a rather tongue-in-cheek comment about guns over the weekend, but after reading about a foiled plot to kill 15 people at random today, I think it may be worth my time to say a bit more.

Bringing up guns here might be as crazy as venting political frustration, but it's my blog and I'll cry if I want to.

The article I read today was forwarded to me by my girlfriend because she recognized the high school in the story:

Pierce County Sheriff deputies arrested a 16-year-old boy over the weekend for allegedly plotting to kill students and staff at Rogers High School in Puyallup.

If you've ever read about me, you'll remember that I graduated from Rogers High School in 1998. The story really hit home because it could have resulted in the deaths of people I know, people I still think about, and people that in one way or another shaped who I am.

The worst part is, this little incident, if you can call it that, is only one piece in a puzzle of gun-related incidents that have had a direct connection to me. When I attended Pacific Lutheran University, my favorite professor, Dr. Holloway, a choir conductor who was inspirational on so many levels, was randomly shot and killed on campus.

I'm not really here to argue for or against guns. I've tried that in the past, albeit very weakly, and it hasn't changed a thing. Writing opinions on a blog can only get you so far. I can say, though, that guns have brought nothing positive to my life. I can already hear the rebuttals, but I will say it one more time...

Guns have brought nothing positive to my life.
