    SANTA FE- A Catholic church in Santa Fe is causing a stir by raising a banner that calls for people to vote for pro-life candidates. "I do think this issue is that big,” Father Larry Brito said. Father Brito said he knows not everyone will support the “Vote Pro-Life” banner on the front of St. Anne Parish in Santa Fe. "If we feel passionate about this, we believe this, then we need to speak up. Even if somebody doesn't agree with us. We still have the obligation to speak up,” Brito said. However, neighbors who live across the street from...

  • 2 Reasons Why the Media Will Drop Coverage of the Capital Gazette Shooting

    On Thursday, four journalists and one staff member of the Capital Gazette were murdered in the newspaper’s Annapolis, Maryland, office. While the event was initially widely covered by all major news outlets, the media is likely to quickly move on from the story, just like it did with the Santa Fe High School shooting, because it doesn’t fit the right narrative. (Unlike many of the Parkland students, the Santa Fe students didn’t respond to the tragedy by calling for gun control measures.) That in itself is a shame, not just because there is much to learn from this tragedy, but...

    The father of the 17-year-old charged with killing 10 people at a high school in Santa Fe, Texas, said Monday that his son was a “good boy” and had been “mistreated at school.” Antonios Pagourtzis said in a brief phone interview with The Wall Street Journal that his son Dimitrios was bullied and “I believe that’s what was behind” the shooting. Dimitrios Pagourtzis is being held without bond at the Galveston County Jail after he allegedly burst into an art classroom Friday morning at Santa Fe High School armed with a shotgun and pistol and opened fire, before surrendering to...

    Survivors of the February Parkland, Fla., high school shooting raged at the NRA and Republican Party for opposing tougher gun controls following the latest mass shooting Friday — while politicians predictably offered “thoughts and prayers.” “Donald Trump does not care about school shootings,” tweeted Cameron Kasky, a co-founder of the advocacy group Never Again MSD and a survivor of the Valentine’s Day slaughter at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida. “Donald Trump does nothing to stop school shootings. Don’t talk to me about the ‘stop school violence act,’ because that does nothing to stop school shootings. “Donald Trump does...

    When the shooter left the room briefly, Abel and others left the closet and tried to barricade the door. But the shooter pushed it open, spotted a student he knew, and with anger said, "Surprise!" before shooting the student in the chest. "I'm still trying to process everything," Abel said in an interview. One of Pagourtzis' classmates who died in the attack, Shana Fisher, "had 4 months of problems from this boy," her mother, Sadie Rodriguez, wrote in a private message to the Los Angeles Times on Facebook. "He kept making advances on her and she repeatedly told him no."...

SNIP Rodriguez didn’t tell the Times how she knew her daughter was shot first.

    Incoming National Rifle Association President Oliver North says school shootings are the product of a “culture of violence,” not the Second Amendment. “The problem that we’ve got is we’re trying like the dickens to treat the symptom without treating the disease,” Mr. North said on “Fox News Sunday.” “And the disease in this case isn’t the Second Amendment. The disease is youngsters who are steeped in a culture of violence.” He said everything from violence on television to Ritalin, a drug used to treat Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, may be contributing to the problem. “Nearly all of these perpetrators are...

    Jimmy Kimmel on Friday opened his ABC show by addressing the latest school shooting in Santa Fe, Texas, which left 10 dead and 10 others wounded. But unlike his previous monologues that addressed the Las Vegas and Parkland massacres, the late-night host eschewed sadness for anger as he berated the “cowardly” politicans who continue to sit idly by and do nothing. “Before we get to our guests and jokes tonight, I want to take a moment because, as you know, we had another school shooting today,” Kimmel began. “And once again, most of our leaders are sending their thoughts and...
