Left Side of the Aisle #46 - Part 3

Everything You Need to Know: What's wrong with our national discussion of gun violence in just three sentences.

Everything you need to know in three sentences about what's wrong with our attitudes about the roots of violence:

1. A teenager shot up a school cafeteria in suburban Cleveland this past Monday, killing two and wounding three others.

2. I read a number of mainstream media accounts of that tragedy, including from USA Today, the Associated Press, the New York Times, CNN, Reuters, CBS, the Cleveland Plain-Dealer, and even one from the Seattle Times on several other school-related gun incidents this year.

3. Not one of those accounts included the phrase, or anything even related to the phrase, "gun control."

And that is everything you need to know.
