I am writing in response to The Michigan Daily's coverage of the incident on Saturday. While I really appreciated the care and sensitivity with which the writers approached this topic, as well as the discussions of the ways the incident particularly affected Muslim and minority students, I have to take issue with one detail ­— the way The Daily presented the role of word-of-mouth information during the events.

Russian author Leo Tolstoy once said, “Wrong does not cease to be wrong because the majority share in it.” This wisdom has obviously been lost on a growing number of counties across the U.S., where localities are declaring themselves Second Amendment sanctuaries and thereby exempting themselves from obeying certain state-level gun control laws.
