Bush draws Democratic criticism for 'stuff happens' comment

U.S. Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush answers a question from the audience at a campaign town hall meeting in BedfordBy Steve Holland WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush said on Friday more government is not always the answer for Americans when crises erupt and “stuff happens,” a remark that Democrats charged was a callous response to victims of gun violence a day after an Oregon mass shooting. At a conservative forum in South Carolina, Bush was asked a rambling question by moderator Alan Wilson, the state’s attorney general. Wilson pressed him on whether there should be more prayer vigils at schools and other institutions to prevent tragedies such as when someone “with an Uzi or a handgun” shoots “a bunch of people.” Wilson did not mention the Oregon shootings a day earlier in which nine people were killed.
