JONESBORO, Arkansas — A planned march in downtown Jonesboro that organizers say is intended to educate people about openly carrying firearms in Arkansas has been postponed because of the shooting death of a 17-year-old boy.
I'd say the Jonesboroites already learned one lesson.

Arkansas Carry member Scott Vaughn told The Jonesboro Sun ( ) that the march is being postponed "out of respect for the family." He said the march would have gone forward if the shooting had been an act of violence.
Presumably he meant "criminal violence" and not "stupid violence." But the boy is just as dead.

The NRA: Not caring who gets hurt for over 100 years.


  1. What in the heck does this have to do with carrying firearms?

    You might as well demand the confiscation of power tools.

  2. He got shot. The story does not say how. By a firearm is all I know.
