(Christian Science Monitor) Three shootings on college campuses this month, have prompted President Obama to look again at going around Congress and issuing executive orders that would place stricter limits on both the sale and possession of firearms.
This week, there were shootings at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, in which one person was killed and three were injured, and a separate incident at Texas Southern University (TSU) with one fatality and one person injured.
