More Guns

Sunday, April 29, 2007

NPH flipped the channel away from the Royals game this afternoon to find a live action local news break about a shooting at a local mall. It's the mall we drive right past nearly every single day, and the locale of our local Target store. It's where we got our cell phone. It's where the wife meets with a group of colleagues to study for the medical board exams. It's where NPH bought a pair of sandals not three weeks ago.

Hardly anything is known about it at this point, since it only happened about 45 minutes ago.

If the cover of the most recent Presbyterian Outlook wasn't unsettling enough already, it looks even worse now. Is the church somehow complicit in our culture's media narrative about guns?
