Let's qualify that to "some"
- This morning's Charleston Gazette-Mail:
- MetroNews at 9 AM this morning:
- Nexstar's statewide television news network carried a story about campus protests on its 5:30 PM statewide news last night.

A 17-year-old brings a loaded gun to a local high school and the Intelligencer finds that "worrisome"
It has had nothing to say, however, about the increasing likelihood that 18-year-olds will legally be allowed to bring concealed weapons to WV Northern and West Liberty campuses
From this morning's Wheeling Intelligencer editorial, "Keeping Firearms Out of Our Schools":
City police say that when they went to Steubenville High School to question a student about an armed robbery, they found a loaded .40-caliber pistol in his backpack. Later, that 17-year-old and a 16-year-old were charged in . . .

Mike Myer blames unions (surprise, surprise) for the rejection of the Republican omnibus education bill

What did West Virginia's congressional delegation and the Wheeling Intelligencer have to say about Trump's order?
What do West Virginia’s representatives think?

Note to Representative McKinley: President Trump is upset that he hasn't received the Nobel Peace Prize
