Apples and oranges. "Terrorism" is designed specifically to "terrorize" the populace for political gain done by people recruited to "the cause."
It is done by a group of people who want you to think the have the capability of extended attacks and that you may be next. A typical terrorist attack
is well-coordinated and involves many different people in the planning, making of explosives, and execution of an attack. After the attack they
"claim responsibility" along with the threat of future attacks and political demands. They are not "just foreigners" at all and have been done in
the US by both left wing and right wing groups. Examples on the left include Bill Ayers, Obama's friend and a member of the Weathermen, an SDS
splinter group who thought the best way to end the Vietnam War was to kill congressmen and cops. On the right we have people like Timothy McVeigh, who
blew up a federal building and killed a couple hundred people. His "organization" wasn't that organized, but he clearly identified with right wing
These "school shootings" have been done largely by young "lone wolf" gunman who feel socially ostracized and/or are off their medications. They
are just angry young man performing copycat killings. There are rarely any political overtones and no coordinated effort. Once the gunman is dead,
there's no one else to go after.
They both kill people, to be sure, but how you can call them both "terrorism" with some vague, incorrect reference to that term only being used
against foreigners, which is demonstrably untrue, is ridiculous.
