Connecticut elementary school shooting (breaking)

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/chi-connecticut-school-shooting-20121214,0,4678476.story

 

Here's what I find especially disturbing.  They arrested someone for assault at a high school a few towns over yesterday.  I've been watching on my fb as people back home report on a student who was removed from my old HS yesterday after  threatening "vengeance" on his bullies today, and people were debating allowing their kids to go to school today.

What I'm wondering is why now - why this week or this month - does it seem to be erupting all over?

  • It's not erupting all over...stuff like this happens all the time. It's not reported a majority of the time.

    I'm finding out about school shootings that happened in the past, fatal ones, that never made it to national news.

  • It happens every day really, but now it looks like the media will be focusing on gun stories in order to further their anti-gun agenda.

  • "but now it looks like the media will be focusing on gun stories in order to further their anti-gun agenda. " I took that directly from the Facebook comments-- By Andrew Blawat... I didn't get to finish my post.

  • I see no reason why we shouldn't have an anti gun agenda.

  • Nothing so far as to number of injured/dead, children are being led to a nearby fire station.
