"Please join me and @SenSchumer in ending gun violence and tweet the hashtag #aimingforchange RT we can do this."

no title

This is just unbelievably tragic for everyone involved.

A small community in White Pine, Tennessee was rocked on Saturday when an 11-year-old boy shot and killed his 8-year-old neighbor.

Apparently, Makayla Dyer was playing around with some of the other neighborhood kids over the weekend when an older classmate of hers asked to see one of her puppies.

Witnesses say that Makayla playfully told the boy no as he had previously been a bully of hers, but that's when he pulled out his father's 12-gauge shotgun and shot her point blank.

The identity of the shooter has not been revealed, as he is a minor accused of a crime, but we do know that he's currently in custody and is being charged with 1st degree murder in juvenile court.

Our thoughts are with Makayla's family and friends at this devastating time.

Jeb Bush Says 'Stuff Happens' After Oregon Shooting — Says Gun Laws Don't Need To Change

Filed under: PolitikSad SadViolenceScary!Controversy

Probably not the best choice of words.

Jeb Bush just pissed a lot of people off.

On Friday, the presidential hopeful was speaking at Furman University in Greenville, South Carolina. In the wake of Thursday's tragic mass shooting at Umpqua Community College in Oregon, the conversation was focused on gun control and senseless acts of violence.

At one point, he was asked if prayers would be more effective if they were allowed in school before an attack like this happens instead of after.

That prompted him to say that the government shouldn't spring into action after tragedies like this because "stuff happens." No, you didn't read that wrong.

Take a look at his full response (below):

President Barack Obama Wants 'Common Sense' Gun Laws After Oregon School Shooting

Filed under: R.I.P.Barack ObamaSad SadViolenceViral: News

We still cannot believe that there's been yet another mass shooting in America.

President Barack Obama addressed the nation Thursday afternoon after a 26-year-old gunman opened fire at Umpqua Community College leaving at least 10 dead.

In his speech, the President questioned firearm enthusiasts' thoughts on gun laws and urged his fellow politicians to do something about America's gun problem.

Unfortunately, he didn't really explain what his "common sense" laws included, but he was visibly shaken by the sad news more than usual.

We're really hoping this is the shooting that finally sparks a change, but we're not sure if Obama has the support in Congress to actually do anything about the 2nd Amendment.

Our thoughts are with the friends and families of everyone involved in the Umpqua school shooting at this time.

Ch-ch-check out President Barack Obama's latest speech (above)!!!

New York Knicks Guard Raymond Felton Arrested For Felony Gun Charges! Is He Headed To Jail??

Filed under: ZportzLegal MattersBusted!New YorkBasketball

raymond felton arrested for gun possession charges

If New York Knicks guard Raymond Felton thought his performance against the Dallas Mavericks was a problem, it might be the least of his worries right now!

The 29-year-old NBA player was arrested early this morning for possessing an unregistered gun!

Raymond was charged with second and third-degree possession of a firearm, both of which are felonies! Additionally, he was also charged with fourth-degree possession of a firearm, which is a misdemeanor.

The shooting guard turned himself in at approximately 12:50 a.m. ET, just hours after the Knicks suffered a loss to the Mavericks!

It's unclear what kind of punishment Raymond might face, however, New York has incredibly strict gun laws and there's definitely a chance he could face jail time!
