Since there is no single definition for what qualifies as a school shooting, CNN set the following parameters:
-The shooting must involve at least one person being shot (not including the shooter).
-The shooting must occur on school property, which includes but is not limited to, buildings, athletic fields, parking lots, stadiums and buses.
-We included accidental discharge of a firearm as long as the first two parameters are met, except in instances where the sole shooter is law enforcement or a security officer.
-We included injuries sustained from BB guns, since the Consumer Product Safety Commission has identified them as potentially lethal.
We went from the Massacre at Columbine to somebody popping a BB or somebody hitting a school bus passing by miles away from the school. The need to keep the drum beating has reached absurd levels of insincere editorializing. This is not intended to bring awareness nor to find real solutions to school violence but to simply push a Gun Control agenda and their motto seems to be: “Truth be dammed till we win and then some.”
