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):

Things continue to go downhill for Nicholas Brendon.

Unfortunately, the incident was pretty violent and disturbing which makes us wonder if Brendon fell victim to his addictions again. Nick did appear a bit off on his recent Dr. Phil appearance, after all.

According to authorities, the 44-year-old was arrested near a family owned hotel in upstate New York after his girlfriend alleged that the actor smashed her cellphone and stole her car keys in an attempt to stop her from leaving. To make matters worse, cops also reported that Nicholas choked the victim.

Authorities talked about the incident to the press, revealing:

"Last night around 11:30 p.m., we got called to a nice family-owned hotel in town for a reported domestic disturbance. We got to the room and we found a 33-year-old female there by herself, and she reported that she had been in a domestic incident with Nick, and he had subsequently left before we got there. She did not have any physical injuries that we were aware of."

Yikes. We're just glad the GF is okay…

N.B. was subsequently charged with two counts of criminal mischief and one count of obstruction of breathing, which are misdemeanors. He was also charged with robbery in the third degree, which is a felony.

We'll update you on this cases as it progresses.

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)!!!
