- There was a very widely publicized shooting spree at Virginia Tech today. At least 33 died when someone locked himself inside a building on Virginia Tech campus, started shooting people, and eventually shot himself.
- In March, a man with a concealed weapon saved a woman from death by stabbing and burning. Her husband stabbed her “at least ten times”, poured fuel over her, and prepared to set her on fire, but a passer-by saved her life and held the husband bent on murder at gunpoint until the police arrived.

Think of the above as “1 + 2 = 3”. There’s a logical progression of concepts here.
