Fifteen-year-old Deshaun Jones had spent much of the summer hanging out in the neighborhood where he died last weekend, gunned down as he sat on a porch just before his first day at Frederick Douglass High School. The teen was among seven people shot in a single incident Saturday in Franklin Square. On Monday, when he was to have begun his freshman year, red, white and blue balloons were left at the shooting scene, along with a stuffed toy animal.

In response to this month's mass shooting at Fort Hood, Speaker of the House John Boehner said mentally disturbed people should not be allowed to get their hands on firearms. But don't hold your breath waiting for legislation to emerge from Congress to keep that from happening. "There's no question that those with mental health issues should be prevented from owning weapons or being able to purchase weapons. " That is what Boehner said. Yet, last year, when a bipartisan bill to set up a system of background checks for gun purchases was put forward, Mr. Boehner showed no enthusiasm for bringing it up for a vote in the House.
