Justin Baker, who met Callahan when they were attending Mabry Middle School, said Tuesday that it may sound clich, but this tragedy couldn't have happened to a nicer guy.
Glenn Meeden, who coached Callahan in swimming in 2004 and 2005, said the former athlete was a good swimmer and swam in a number of events.
We need to understand that, liberal pap to the contrary, there really is no such thing as a gun free zone, and despite all the laws in the world that legally deny guns to convicted felons or unstable persons, there will always be guns out there in the hands of anti social criminals and psychopaths. More gun control laws might make some folk feel good, but the hard reality is more gun control laws are not the answer, especially laws that demonize law abiding responsible citizens who have the Consitutional right to bear arms for self defense.
"We take pride in the fact that he died doing something so honorable," she said.
