Shane Ryan joins me on a special edition of the Golf Unfiltered Podcast to discuss the senseless, horrific acts that took place today at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon. The conversation between Shane and I go to many places -- fueled by our respective beverages of choice -- as we discuss the day's events, lament on the status of our country's gun laws, admire President Obama on his message and everything else in between.

“To claim that America’s 'culture of violence' is responsible for school shootings is tantamount to cigarette company executives declaring that environmental pollution is the chief cause of lung cancer....

"How many guns does it take to make you feel safe? And how do you simultaneously keep them loaded and close at hand, but still out of reach of your inquisitive children or grandchildren? Are you sure you wouldn’t do better with a really good burglar alarm? It’s true you have to remember to set the darn thing before you go to bed, but think of this — if you happened to mistake your wife or live-in partner for a crazed drug addict, you couldn’t shoot her with a burglar alarm.” ― Stephen King, Guns
