Momentum Gaining to Allow Firearms on Campuses

In announcing the death of Pete Seeger who passed away on Monday night at the age of 94, the mainstream media applauded his lifetime as a folk singer, singing, as the Washington Post put it, “songs of love, peace, brotherhood, work and protest” and calling him a “20th-century troubadour” known for popularizing “If I Had a Hammer”, “Where Have All the Flowers Gone” and especially the “anthem of the civil rights movement”: “We Shall Overcome.”
