Gunfire is now so common at educational institutions that we can't even call the Umpqua Community College shooting "the latest." 

Because incidents in other states, albeit with less loss of life, followed quickly on the heels of Roseburg.

The group's executive director, Penny Okamoto, returns to The Exchange to offer her perspective and some ideas for a way forward.
