I've posted about this before and I'll reiterate it again..
Shooting "sprees" like this happen all the time.. 2-3 people ( this was 3 people last time I checked ) .. there have been many instances of employees
gone mad.. or going "postal" which came about because of the postal employee who went on a shooting spree .. the problem is the gun topic is a hot
topic and the media is itching for every story they can find that is gun related.
This same thing happened after the Florida cannibal case.. suddenly the media was reporting cannibal cases, even from the past! .. they also started
going rabid over anything bath salts or drug induced insanity.. but all of that is quiet now.. has it stopped? .. no .. was it ever spiking or
increasingly unusual? NO ... but the media was sensitive to the topic.
This too shall pass... right now it's just a sensitive topic.. does anyone remember Clinton passing a ban on assault rifles and large capacity clips?
.. the conspiracy theorists and media ran wild with that too .. talking about a revolution.. the NRA was foaming at the mouth.. was there a
revolution? no .. because the average american has no need for assault weapons or large capacity clips.. this doesn't affect the LARGE majority of
people.. it only affects a rather tiny segment of the population... but the media focuses on that because otherwise it wouldn't be a story.
I'm not saying I agree with gun control, largely because it will be ineffective and doesn't get to the root cause of issues like this.. I'm just
saying it's hyped up by the media because it's a sensational topic
