    What will it take to end the gun carnage?

    A makeshift memorial has been assembled in front of the WDBJ-TV station in Roanoke, Va., in memory of slain reporter Alison Parker and camera operator Adam Ward. The suspect in Wednesday's fatal shooting of two television journalists during a live broadcast in southwestern Virginia was apparently inspired to lash out by June's racially motivated church massacre in Charleston, S.C., a fact that only compounds both tragedies.

    The man accused of killing two Virginia TV journalists wrote in a manifesto that it was the Charleston church shooting that sent him “over the top.” But some Lowcountry community leaders said they believe he latched onto the mass shooting at Emanuel AME Church to rationalize a crime he probably would have committed anyway.
