So, I'm reading this book called The Martyrs of Columbine: Faith and the Politics of Tragedy, which is very interesting. But that's not important right now. What's important is that the killers, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, are continually referred to as "gunmen".

But, alas, they were not. Dark mirror images of the girl who'll be a woman soon, they were boys who would never grow up to be men.

I therefore suggest the use of the word "gunteen" to describe them, and others like them, in the future.

Thank you.
