Those who have never worked or spent significant time with athletes who strive for the highest levels of competition can’t understand how devastating the death of three University of Virginia football players is to their teammates.
As the University of Virginia and Charlottesville community mourn the loss of three student-athletes who were gunned down Sunday night after a charter bus trip to Washington, D.C., another round of the relentlessly unproductive debate over gun control is upon us.

It has been weeks since we asked 7th Congressional District candidate Yesli Vega if she supports a federal life-at-conception bill offered by U.S. Rep. Bob Good, a fellow Virginia Republican. Vega has not responded. We do not expect her to.
Spanberger, by accepting the PWC100 debate, demonstrates a willingness to enter an environment that may be considered by some in her camp as less favorable to her side. Vega should be willing to do the same.
Mike Pence and Elizabeth Chew reflect democracy at its best. Two individuals who respect the work and roles of the other, even if they represent movements that disagree with one another.
