    Story on CNN's front page: "Two people were fatally shot Friday after a gunman opened fire at Campbell Hall dormitory at Central Michigan University, campus police said."

    Thanks Left. I checked it out. They seem to think some sort of domestic issue. Too many a-holes in the world.

    This one sounds like a shooting that happened to occur at a school rather than a "school shooting" as we think of them. They're saying "domestic issue" and that the people shot were not students.

    Perhaps a valid distinction

    Obviously not if you're the person shot, but yeah, for the rest of us.

    Of course, part of the trouble in gun discussions is the way we conflate terms

    Maybe, but that doesn't help those two dead people.

    So we seem to be dependent on the NRA and other corporate interests for the bulk of our policy making. This seems inappropriate for a representative democracy of the people.

    Corporations are people too. Or so said the most delusional SCOTUS in history.

    Yes. While the interpretation may have been Constitutional, the result is nothing but disastrous for our democracy.
