Won’t be news more than a day.

Yep. No long guns involved. No white people involved. Doesn't fit the narrative. Spike it.

Perhaps “reporters” can start to cover with such diligence all of the “shots fired” in gang-controlled cities across this country. Of course, that would take some bravery and possibly even a little military-embed training.....

Yeah -- and Level III body armor.

There is too much of these mass shooting going on in a short time for there to be anything but ‘tin hat’ conspiracy stuff involved.

500 murders in Chicago last year. How many multiple homicide shootings from Chicago made the national news last year?

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

Meanwhile the flesh eater bath salt huffing attacks have disappeared from the news cycle. Media loves exploitive "chaos" stories. Puts the audience on edge.

Do the police have to turn in their guns before entering the gun free zone?

Or does the campus call people with guns to come protect them in their gun free zone?

It’s all so confusing...

“There is too much of these mass shooting going on in a short time for there to be anything but ‘tin hat’ conspiracy stuff involved.”

Most are simply “copycat effect”. The more news coverage the MSM give these shootings, the more shootings you get, as more people on the edge are given incentive to get their time in the spotlight.

Welll, yeah... But Chicago, the place that 0bama ‘organized’ doesn’t count. Nor Detroit or other such enclaves.

This one is looking like just two melanin enhanced ‘gangbangers’ so likely will go away soon.

But the one in Albuquerque a couple days ago fits into the tin hat stuff, and will be used in the anti-gunners campaign.

A few weeks back one of the analysts on FOX said that he thinks the news media itself contributes to shootings and predicted that there would be more because they become the only thing in the news.

Yes, and there’s a reason they hit a lot of bystanders. They use that gang-style aiming technique.

Hold pistol above head at 90 degree angle to ground. Push pistol toward target while shooting and cussing the intended victim’s ancestory.

Phone witness student to KHOU Live:

Stopped to give aid to 2 who were shot. One happened to be one of the shooters. Described this ‘downed’ shooter as a Black student.

The ‘downed’ shooter did not have a weapon.

Shooting took place in Admin Building.

One shooter retreated to Library.

“Investigators said a second suspect, an 18- to 20-year-old black male wearing a red shirt and Falcons cap, fled north of campus to a nearby subdivision. Deputies are actively searching for him.”

Well, it may be... But SJL was on Fox for several minutes and claimed it was in her district, and is getting continuous updates from the cops on scene

But she is a known liar, so I can’t say what the actuality is.

IF these really are black, it fits more with the targeted over sensitive reactionary violent fist-fight type this seems to be.

IOW, looks like it wasn’t intended as a mass shooting. Thus, sorry, it is not as big news because other victims were incidental, not targeted. It is not a mass shooting, no more than incidental accidentals of thug fights in the city.

However, it’s an interesting study in the vanity of gun-free zones. Even common thugs aren’t deterred from bringing their guns.

Reporters frantically trying to hype a fight between two yahoos into a national incident. Breathlessly reporting that there are “police officers with shotguns” on campus.
“Oh My God, big scary guns”.

Sheesh!

Same stuff happens in Chicago every weekend.

Turns out it's just a Chicago style one on one shooting. I'm sure the left will try to use this, but it's a culture thing and nothing more. No one else was a target.

My nephew (and NIECE) are apparently OK... They attend the Kingwood campus.

The school under lock-down is just west of IAH, off Hardy Road.

I had no idea how BIG that system is. They have at least 6 campuses, and more than 90,000 students!

LOTS of frightened parents and friends today...

That’s kind of what I gathered. I assume one of the persons shot is probably an innocent bystander.

I was on the Harrisburg Area Community College campus a few days after the Virginia Tech event. I’m walking along with my site contact, and shots ring out, then more and more shots. My contact informs me that that would be the campus shooting range — pistol target and skeet, run with the PA State Police. Sweet.

Deputies said they have detained a person of interest. Investigators said a suspect, an 18- to 20-year-old black male wearing a red shirt and Falcons cap, fled north of the campus to a nearby subdivision. Deputies are actively searching for him.

Interesting . So far, everyone on the campus that they have interviewed is ‘melanin enhanced’.

Including the reporter via satellite that they have on at this moment.

SJL’s district is highly gerrymandered, this did take place in her district. It’s in the section north of beltway 8 and west of I45:

Well, and the more reporting you get, the more local incidents that wouldn’t have been heard about outside their community become national stories. First, the incident establishes a narrative, then reporters jam-fit every other incident into that narrative.

I stand corrected. Just looked up a map of Texas 18th District. They do have it gerrymandered around to include that part of Houston. My apologies..

We didn't live in a culture of death back then. Over the years, the "rot America from within" communists did their dirty work.
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. Even though they're college age, I don't want to frighten them, because more innocent people are going to die before the American citizens figure out where it's coming from. I just raised them up in the way they should go so they'll not depart from it when they get older.

I think they wrote that with the idea that the law might change at some future date. I don’t think they can keep you from keeping a gun locked in your vehicle any more.

I’m thinking this has been going on “all the time” and Big Media has just now been given the command the past few weeks to report EVERY SHOOTING.

You never read about more than two or three babies in America left in hot cars every year but there are like twenty or thirty.....

Gun free zone where gang members don’t read signs.

Lone Star has 7 campuses. That particular campus is near the mall in Houston known as “Gunspoint” Mall (real name Greenspoint) because of the type of customers who hang out there and their activities.

Witness said two guys got into an argument and pulled guns and shot each other.
