"I heard of it on the radio in Arizona an hour ago. They referred to it as another “school shooting”.

Hi, marktwain -The media is so stupid. It is not regarded YET as another "school shooting".

So far, the news around Houston is that two people were fighting and each drew guns on the other. A couple of innocent bystanders were hit and a man had a heart attack.

The media is so stupid and predictable. The rush to be first - let the truth follow, if at all.

"This is more "shark attack" journalism. A spike in the COVERAGE of such stories to make audiences think they are occurring with greater frequency."

Yes....

"When I tell my kids what the country was like when I was a kid, they ask how come we can't live like that now. It's hard to explain to them the culture war that's going on in this country. "

Same here with my niece and nephews. I wish we could turn the clock back a lot of times so they could see what it was like. It wasn't perfect but was so much better "when we were young".

These kids are so innocent and see some much more violence and insanity than most of us until we were much older.

When my niece was little, I tried to explain to her how her grandmother would wash clothes and hang them on a clothes line.

She asked me why her grandmother didn't just put them in the dryer.

Times change.

Predictable, but not stupid.
I’m convinced that they’re attempting to create more of these via copycat using an onslaught of new and explosive, “School Shooting,” reports every day. Doing this, they believe, will turn the public’s eye to the point where they’re DEMANDING gun control.
But, you probably already know this.
Still, I’m calling sheriffs and elected folks as often as I can.

Perhaps I should also call the media.
Asking them why they’re creating more of these incidents...

This was not a random shooting.

“He said, ‘I don’t want to fight you, I’m not trying to go to jail,” said Eyyonna Fontenot, a student who witnessed the argument and shooting.

She said the gunman initially walked away, but then changed his mind when the other man said something else.

“Whatever ticked him off, whatever they said, [the gunman] got it out of his backpack and just started shooting,” she said.

Did she just say that the reason the Marines are posted at embassies is to protect classified information, not people?

Update: Two guys got into an argument. Obummer's son turned to walk away but had second thoughts so pulled his gun out and started shooting. He hit the other guy three times and a maintanance man. A woman was taken to the hospital for a heart attack or something. Butt, he also ended up shooting himself in the buttocks.

Even the Houston Comical’s article (which had SIX contributing writers and ran for 2 pages - front page and most of an interior page) had to admit that shootings were frequent occurrence in that area. What is Queen Shelia doing to reduce violent CRIME in her district? It isn’t the guns that are the problem. It’s the people who believe that using guns to settling “getting dissed” that are the problem.

There were 2 20-story jumpers that I knew about at the office tower I worked at for 3 years. One did a swan dive inside and a few years later, one jumped from the top of the exterior. Neither suicide made the local news.

The media doesn't cover every event or public death. There even is a policy to silence most coverage of suicides for fear of tipping someone else over the edge.

But when someone kills his family BEFORE killing himself, that will be "nightly news" item. Even if it wasn't your neighborhood, nobody famous, etc.

A gay Democrat lobbyist in Houston was murdered in his home (gunshot) and the house set ablaze by an arsonist (initially ruled an "accident" until the autopsy revealed the bullet hole, leading to further inquiry). That death didn't make the local tv news. The investigation fell flat.

Same with the assault/murder of the spurned gay lover who initiated the whole "Lawrence v. Texas" case by calling in the phony "assault 911" call on his lover and the "new boyfriend". Someone that "famous" and you'd think the media would be interested in learning just who DID kill him (or at least noting his death, since some idiots extrapolated that it was a "gay hating" neighbor who made the original police call.

Not all death makes the news. Only that which serves some agenda.

Meanwhile a rise in break-ins, armed robbery, identity theft, and other crime doesn't make the news.

All of them, except the one too young to vote. In that case, his parents were registered democrats. There definately is a strong pattern here.

Have any good article links regarding this by chance?

I can also remember a while back the guy that flew his plane into the IRS building in TEXAS was also a leftist.

..and the guy that shot up a few people at the Jewish community center (or was it a museum?) was a devout National Socialist.

I wondering if there is a page that documents this stuff? Maybe something to start documenting on our home pages?

No sinister black rifles involved, right? Just gang-bangin’ hair-tempered, disrespected homeys involved with Glocks?
That’s because “assault rifles” are involved in less than 1% of all fatal firearms shootings in this country.
“But, but, let’s not be unhasty, let’s not bicker and argue over ... let’s not let the facts get in the way of another good crisis!”
Your local, state and nat’l MSM
