Yesterday, after the Kentucky shooting, I heard several conservative sources saying that that was the 11th shooting of 2018. I was stunned, to say the least. Then I see that the NYT has run with it and Gavin Newsome is blaming the NRA (Shock!). This morning I ran across this list (from HuffPost of all places) of what the shootings entailed. You can see there are some suicides and shootings outside of the school included. School shootings are awful but to have the media be disingenuous is not shocking but maddening. – Corky

As long as THEY continue to make schools soft targets this will continue to happen. And the Communist know this. It’s a great tool for them to try and continually disarm us.
It is maddening the depths that they distort and lie to promote their leftist agenda.
But that is who they are and what they do.
The intentional distortion of facts by an agenda driven media and one political party is disturbing and chilling.
Their feverish desire to disarm the citizenry should cause every American to reject them en masse.
No worries for the next 7 years with PDT.
But leftists are cancer. It never sleeps. Never relents. It’s
Why is this happening? Guns are banned from most schools. It’s like these bad guys don’t care.
Some of these are hood related rather than school related.
They forgot Little Jimmy Smith that fired a spitball at Mrs. Mcguilicuddy from a high powered fully semi automatic straw with a bumper stock during nap time.
Using a pellet gun is considered a shooting???
Using the criteria of the HuffPoo, there were probably hundreds of school “shootings” in that same period. Shooting school windows with a BB gun used to be a time-honored tradition.
They keep talking about charging the 15 year-old Kentucky killer as an adult.
WTF? Put him DOWN!
He will likely be released from prison before he turns thirty.
Whereas the doctor who molested his patients gets a life sentence.
