When a student recently opened fire at a California high school, staff members did what they were trained to do.

Virginia looks at scrapping defunct, racist laws still on the books

“It has no force of law, but the ugly words are still there,” Northam said of the old laws, which he will push the General Assembly to repeal in the session that begins in January. “You might ask, ‘Governor, if those old laws aren’t in effect anymore, why does it matter if we take them […]
