i don't think active shooter is considered news in America, it's more like a formality.

True as it seems to be happening at such a high rate.

So it's not an "active shooter" as of the posting of the OP, the shooter is "down" (unspecified definition of that word) and there are no active threats at this time.

Thanks for the post--I'm in the Cincinnati Metro area, so while I'm far enough away for it not to be my problem, it's close enough to pay attention.

Thanks for the update. Glad hear you would not have been in harms ways if it would have been a worse situation.

I was thinking exactly the same thing.

Why is this news?

America is the land of the gun. People buy guns for two reasons. To hunt game. And to shoot other people.

So, why is it newsworthy that people are getting shot?

Did he use a strange type of gun?

Was it a 3D printed gun, for example?

What's different and novel about this particular shoot that makes it "NEW...s"

?

Reports are made for the safety of the public--it's appropriate to let the public know that there may be a dangerous person actively using a firearm, especially on a medical or university campus.

And, yes, this is a rare occurrence in most places, where something like this is done at a public place, no matter how one wants to buy into the alarmism around the topics of firearm ownership in America.

People are really watching events like these to add to the constant tally of white right wing gun owners and muslim terrorists.

Once the race, either way is revealed, everyone simmers down and starts referencing the charts.

UC medical center is part of the University of Cincinnati and a stones throw from the main campus, basically across the street.

You live on the West side, right?

UC is basically county hospital so they are used to treating gunshot wounds and it's always full of cops.

I live on the East side, but my daughter goes to the UC main campus.

I always worry about my little girl.

For the same reason media doesnt report on the good things cops do on a daily basis.

Headlines grab ratings.
