Another School Shooting

Today I received a “friend” invite from one of the sites “powered” by Xanga — revelife.com. It’s a site (?) that concerns itself with how to live the proper Christian life. Not that I’m a Christian — religion and I don’t get along well — but still, I added “them” for the self-promotion value.

And the first update about a blog posting there concerned a school shooting today. Here’s the link to the AP article

Why is it with these school shootings (at least in America) almost always seem to happen in public schools?

Why is it that we never hear about students at a private school doing this?

Why is it that we never hear about homeschooled kids shooting their parents, siblings or neighbors?

Why is it that all of these shootings that make the news happen in places where possession of firearms is forbidden (exceptions made for cops, of course)? For example, the school I’m currently attending, Central New Mexico Community College, has such policies in place. We have signs posted at each of the parking lot entrances warning potential gun-toters about this policy, and that campus officials will prosecute to the “fullest extent of the law.” Coronado Mall here in Albuquerque has similar policies in place.

I’m wondering if such signs would be best accompanied by signage of this type —

“ENTER AT YOUR OWN RISK.”

Why is it that when people do disobey these restrictions and use a firearm to stop these types of “spree” killers (the term that cops favor at present is “active shooter”), we almost never hear about it in the lamestream snoozemedia?

Why is it that we never hear of “active shooters” taking their rampages to local shooting ranges?
