    I don't know why FL is so screwed up, I suspect its something in the water or some other environmental toxin.

        There's 20,000 murders a year. How many do you hear about?

        The media simply cherry picks the ones they want to talk about. Chicago has 75 shootings in a single weekend (not unusual for them) and it's a brief note in the papers. Baltimore is having it's bloodiest year in decades, and it doesn't make the news.

        Who knows why the media is reporting only Florida.

          Copycat strikes again. In a world with an ever expanding population, and a near instantaneous exchange if information and ideas this is going to happen again and again. Guns, bombs, automobiles, poisonings, and so forth and such like are the foul offspring of the Communications Age. Nothing will ever prevent all the people hell bent on destruction from obtaining their goals from time to time. Such is life.

            They blame Florida for 2000.

            How many died last year in traffic accidents in the U.S.? 49,000 or thereabouts? Strange no blame is attached to AAA and State Farm.

                Please elaborate. "From," or "By."

                I get your point, but the point stands the same for firearms. In the end, there really is no way to know for certain, but it is very safe to say the number exceeds many times those lost from either.

                  Multiple fatalities at once.

                  But also because we can identify with the victims. Most of the killings you mention in Chicago will be gangstaa killing each other or their associates.
                  Whereas many of us have either been to one of these events or know someone who has. Even more so with the school shootings. We have all been to school and most have children at or soon to start or have been to school.

                    Most of the killings in Chicago are bystanders. Nearly half are from gang-bangers firing into crowds at parties or clubs, producing multiple deaths and woundings. Nearly one hundred children under ten have been killed by stray gunfire since the start of the year, including many at school functions.

                    But they're black, so they don't matter to liberals.

                    No, Tubor has the right of it: the media is hammering Florida because it is a red state, and because of 2000.

                          My condolences for the victims and their families, BTW the shooter ate his gun, and we are due for another gun control Thread.
