The recent tragic school shooting was bad enough, but to hear that an armed deputy failed to intervene and possibly save the lives of young people is tragic. It was an act of despicable cowardice. But what about Congress and the president? They could intervene on the next one and save lives, and they are armed with the authority of law. But fearful of special interests, they are afraid to do so, therefore they are just as cowardly as the deputy. In fact, they are even more cowardly than the deputy because at least he feared for his life, which we all can understand, while all they care about is their jobs. Because of their cowardice, many more will die. They are worse than despicable.
