On a peaceful morning of prayer, the inevitable happened.
Sunday morning, what the religious have deemed God’s day, 4% of a small town in the faithful state of Texas was killed in a massive church shooting.
Today, one of the most significant figures in all of college basketball let his feelings towards the tragedy and sympathy for lost loved ones be known on Twitter. UConn women’s basketball coach Geno Auriemma tweeted a question that was sure to stir the pot - at the swirling rate our nation has sought hope.
The Hall of Famer spoke about mental illness and questioned the legality and use of assault rifles in the U.S. He tweeted five times in 12 hours.
This isn’t political in any way. Someone explain to me what I️ should tell my grandkids when they ask me about terrorism.— Geno Auriemma (@GenoAjustsayin) November 6, 2017
Auriemma ended his Twitter frustration with this Tweet:
England:no ASSault rifles =safe schools— Geno Auriemma (@GenoAjustsayin) November 6, 2017
Australia:no ASSault rifles=safe churches
Japanno ASSault rifles=safe concerts
US:2nd amend=You ASS
One can understand Auriemma’s frustration, as Connecticut was the state shaken by the massive shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary back in 2012.
