Trigger Warnings

Paul M. Winistorfer, the dean of the College of Natural Resources and Environment at Virginia Tech:

The expressions "silver bullet," "pull the trigger," "shoot from the hip and "under the gun" are used in everyday language across our campus, and commonly even by those in leadership positions. I hear these and similar terms at least once a week, if not once a day. It always makes me cringe.

I cannot help but reflect on the pain and suffering inflicted on so many in our country and around the world by violence involving guns and bullets.
