This weekend's shooting at the White House, the latest in a string of security problems at the presidential home, was labeled today by press secretary Dee Dee Myers as the result of an all too violent society. "We have a problem with too many guns on the streets, too much violence and I think this is just a symptom, yet another symptom of that," Myers said. Investigators have found a bullet in the state dining room of the mansion, while three others fell short of the apparent target and were discovered outside. There are still no leads on the identity of the gunman. The First Family slept through Saturday night's attack, but this third breach of White House security, after a plane crashed into the building earlier this fall and Francisco Duran later allegedly peppered the house with gunshots, raises new questions about president's safety.Post your opinion on theCrimebulletin board.
