Gov. Jeb Bush Defends “Stuff Happens” Comment After Oregon Shooting, Highlight Hollywood News

Oregon School Shooting
Republican presidential hopeful Jeb Bush says he’s opposed to new federal gun laws as a response to the mass shooting at an Oregon community college.   At a forum in South Carolina, Bush said Friday he learned as Florida governor that “stuff happens … there’s always a crisis, and the impulse is to do something, and it’s not necessarily the right thing to do.”

Bush later defended his use of the phrase “stuff happens.” He says he was speaking generally about tragedies, not Thursday’s shooting that left 10 people dead, including the gunman.
