My deepest and most sincere condolences for the senselessly tragic loss of, Stephen, your wonderful son, nephew, grandson, cousin, friend, alumni, and co-worker. I wish there were words to say that would offer instant comfort; there aren't though. May GOD hold you all closely offering [if only] a modicum of solace during this difficult time; Stephen heard a higher calling. My prayers and thoughts will remain with your family. I remain Justin DeSha-Overcash's momma [UMd murdered Physics/Astronomy Senior] by gun violence @ 8809 38th Ave, College Park MD 20740 January 11, 2011. THE VIOLENCE MUST BE STOPPED.

Here is an innocent man gunned down by someone with known mental issues who goes out and purchases a rifle and handgun legally, and nothing needs to change? Come on, this needs to be stopped.
