Have we become used to or immune to mass shootings?

Or only those in schools? Very surprised to see nothing about the school shooting in KY. :/

Maybe because they don't have a catchy hashtag!

Obviously the mainstream press is covering up the shooting to protect the Trump administration.

One of the Foxes, or CNNs talked about it for about 45 seconds.

Not enough bodies I suppose.

All part of the brainwashing. For the same reason so many even today will start smoking cigarettes. Adult logic is not longer relevant. Emotions are the response. It will only be news when consumers start buying 155 mm howitzers for their personal protection.

In the old west, very few had guns. Today, the myths even claim everyone back then had guns. They didn't. But emotions - not reality - are relevant.

Emotions now say mass shootings are their problem.

Its population control. Now that the cops are saving the burglar drug addicts from overdose there has to be some regulated death control.

Is it possible that news outlets have finally started to take on board the advice of experts not to give the public notoriety that so many mass shooters are looking for when they do this?

This wasn't a mass shooting, nor a school shooting, just you average everyday shooting that happened to take place at a school. And the kid was probably white, probably Christian, run of the mill hillbilly. It's just unfortunate the other kids weren't armed or had it in their backpack. Nothing to see here.

Instead we should arm all students with Stihl saws. Stihl makdes a good saw for that. Then kids need not go running down the highway in winter - need not potentially die from colds.

Best is to always arm everyone. Especially with tools designed to remove arms. History has repeatedly proven that.

Those already wearing black in support of #MeToo are all set for this.

Now, regardless of their emotions, would those tools be hand tools, or, arm tools?

I'm pretty sure we're good with that and with the Russians funding politicians through the NRA. No big wup, it's all good, no discussion needed.
