Two articles reveal tragic gunfire ironies

info@islandpacket.comJanuary 31, 2014 

Two articles on opposite pages of the newspaper on Jan. 25 caught my attention.

* First article: "State Sen. Lee Bright's campaign for U.S. Senate is giving away a rifle in a drawing."

* Second article: "A 20-year-old South Carolina State University football player was shot to death Friday afternoon outside of a dormitory."

There is tragic irony here.
