And just what action does idiot Jones "demand"
that he thinks will end school shootings?

NOTHING WILL END THEM!
As long as the idiotic media insists on making
depressed and angry people famous, some will choose
to become famous.

Ramos is dead, so that ends any more shootings by HIM.

Agreed. Some of the scumbags do it at least in part
for notoriety. If the media would report shootings
"by an unidentified person who shall remain nameless",
that alone would reduce the number of shootings.

Perhaps you might actually watch the news coverage, JW. As of now,
*you* are the only person repeating the shooter's name... the news
media are all avoiding identifying the shooter by name.

I think that we all realize that *nothing* will end the carnage in the
short term. We must look 30 years down the road and envision an
America without random mass shootings... you know, like the rest of
the civilized world. At first, the gun lobby took baby steps: "We
believe in absolutely gun-free, zero-tolerance, totally safe schools.
That means no guns in America’s schools. Period." (Wayne LaPierre in
an address to CPAC, 1999.) They agreed to gun-free churches and
hospitals, also. A few years later, they were actively pushing guns
into schools, churches, and hospitals... and here we are today with a
daily blood bath.

We cannot possibly undo all of the social damage wrought over three
decades of gun proliferation with one act of congress; however, the
longest journey begins with but a single step.

Perhaps we're ready; people are very angry; this is good.

The news media are generally avoiding using the names of mass
shooters.

What an ignorant, arrogant LIAR!!

Even when shown the clear evidence and links
that MSN.com, CNN.com, BBC.com, and the likes
of yahoo.com, sky.com, and other news sources
have distributed the shooter's name,

to counter his claim that ""the news media are all
avoiding identifying the shooter by name."

Jones posts "I stand by my statement."

Except they're not, and you know it, and what you posted to the
contrary makes you a big fat liar liar pants on fire.

I challenge you: Pick a recent mass shooting. Tell me which one
you picked. I will find stories from a whole bunch of major news
media using the shooter's name.

I didn't say that the shooter's name was classified.

Tune into any mainstream national news live or recently recorded
broadcast and count the number of times the shooter's name is
mentioned... the shooting is about 48 hours old and you will not hear
the shooter's name used in the discussion... they avoid mentioning the
shooter's name insofar as they possibly can. The person's name is
hard news, but they focus on the injured people, not the shooter... as
they should.

You, or some similar nitwit wrote: "Nothing will end [the mass
shootings] As long as the idiotic media insists on making depressed
and angry people famous, some will choose to become famous."

The media is trying to avoid making them famous!

And, the reason I am arrogant, sir, is because I have a brain and use
it. I also read the post to which I reply before I type.

And I stand by my statements... all of them.

Oh, well... we disagree. This does not shock me any because I do not
recall where we have ever even agreed about the time of day. It
doesn't matter what I say, you will throw a shrieking fit over it.

But, just an observation, J.W.: you *really* need to find another
epithet besides "liar". My belief is that some terms need to be
reserved for the most egregious offenses; to that end, you will
*never* see me hurl the term "liar" simply because I casually disagree
with someone on some minor subjective point.

Overusing an expletive like that is a certain sign of a weak
vocabulary. *I*, on the other hand, have a vocabulary that is *so*
big... it's like... you know... Thus, I would call *you* an
abecedarian, or, perhaps an aphasic. Both speak to the idea of one
who communicates poorly.

You gotta admit that they're better than parroting "liar" every other
post!

If you'd stop lying, you wouldn't get called a liar so much.

I thought you were a teacher. Don't you know what the word means?
