Just when you think it's safe to frolic about, a 15yo kid (Lawrence King) gets killed by a 14yo kid (Brandon McInerney) because he's gay. And it happened outside LA. What kind of madness is this?

Gay murders in Blue states is unacceptable. Ok, gay murders anywhere are unacceptable, but still. The fact that he was shot in the head by the 14yo just blows my mind (no pun intended). Where are all these kids getting their guns from?? More importantly, HOW are these kids getting guns?? I couldn't get a gun if I tried. OK, I could just go to Wal*Mart and purchase one. I guess that's the problem.

In true gay fashion, a march was organized for Larry. Ellen mentioned it on her show. People are mentioning it on their blogs. And already there are a ton of "Remembering Lawrence" videos posted on YouTube.

So hopefully with all this press, something will change for the better. But why does it always take someone dying for change to come about?
