    Things tend to not be national news when no one dies and sometimes even when someone does die. It usually doesn't become national news until it hits a certain extent such as Newtown or the theater. It's local/regional news. We have shootings here in Mass. too. Doesn't make your news down in Texas does it?

    I just don't get the defense for guns. I never will.

    Sorry I don't buy that when it happened 2 days after Newtown amid all the controversy about whether he could have been stopped if someone at the school had a gun, AND it happened in a movie theater. There are many shootings that make national news. Like the woman that was shot after shoplifting. That happened in Texas too and somehow everyone heard about that.

    I haven't heard of that story...either one of them until it was brought up here.

    Have you heard of this down where you are?

    I just don't think these things are national news. At all. I don't think it's some crazy conspiracy.

    Really was that story about someone going to shoot random people in a public place? Ya those stories DO make then news except when the media suppresses it because the shooter is stopped and it happens 2 days after a mass shooting.

    But what I'm trying to say is that a lot of these things don't make national news because they don't need to be national news. That was the first and closest example I could find locally/regionally that was recent.

    That just proves my point. That made national news.

    Did it? I live 30 miles from there so I wasn't sure. Either way- if our men in blue can so easily be disarmed I'd hate to be in an inner city classroom when things when bad.
