    The left is not missing the fact that a mass shooting happened during the NRA press conference. IF it is in fact a mass shooting. That's certainly how it's being talked about.

    Crap like this occurs all the time during the Holidays. It is a high stress time for alot of people. I am sure Putts Morgan will make a big deal out of it, but nothing really to see here.

    I don't wish to in any way diminish the lives that were lost, but "mass shooting"?

    So where exactly is the threshold for something to be a "mass" shooting? This was 3 victims. Is 2 victims also a mass shooting?

    Most scholarly reviews of mass shootings are 4 people, including the shooter if he takes his or her own life.

    That's exactly correct. People who have taken an intro criminalistics course which studies crime statistics know this.

    Shooter was killed by a State Trooper, so the count is 3.

    I took that from something I read earlier in the week about the history of them. This isn't to be a comparison to you fellas up in CT- as this stunt pales in comparison. Wikipedia has this to say and YMMV.

    I was shocked when I heard about this- we're what most people call "three lefts past nowhere". I live in a very very quiet town- and I suppose I was lulled into believing that things like this do not happen

    Either way-
    I don't think that's going to end up being the issue (the mass murder argument)...once the news media realizes this happened right in the middle of the NRA statement. The way that things are being sensationalized by media at this point; compound with deliberate misrepresentation of facts does not signal good things in the future for gun owners.

    Every shooting from now on will get top billing in the press.

    According to piers Morgan 2 is a mass shooting, kept talking about the Oregon mass mall shooting, only 2 people were killed besides the gunman. It sucks about the lives lost but I wouldn't consider that a mass shooting,

    A mass shooting is 4 or more? 10 maybe, 4? Not hardly. Prayers to the families involved.

    Reminds me of the question frequently asked by American G.I.s during the Korean War: "How many hordes in a Chinese platoon?"
