Just sarcasm, demonstrating that in every situation we blame the person that screwed up, not he bus, transmission, car, etc., because blaming the inanimate object would be absurd - except apparently when it comes to firearms.

I was in the hospital getting prepped for surgery yesterday morning when the "Code Orange" came over the loud speaker. I said to the nurse that didn't sound good. "Nope, that's a mass casualty." Turned on the news and it was being reported.

Neighbor works at one of the hospitals here in the Panhandle and treated one of the assistant band directors this morning. He gave an account that the driver was deceased prior to getting into the accident.
