It's OK, everyone. This was a "targeted shooting" and not a mass shooting.

They use the term targeted shooting to try to calm everyone down. "It's OK. they were shot by someone they know. This is not the work of some crazy person shooting at random." I'm sure everyone feels so much better.

Take a re-read of subby's headline.

That's where we are in terms of how we deal with these types of things now.

I doesn't really matter to me one way or the other, I'm just making jokes over here, but it seems odd that to support your point that they don't have multiple words for snow you'd link to an article that says, "Modern anthropologist Igor Krupnik is fighting back, however, counting at least 53 meaningfully distinct words for snow in the Inuit dialect spoken within the Nunavik region of Canada."

Goshen was the hot spot for cruising in the early 80s. Bored teens and early 20s would flock there from the surrounding rural areas. Lots of rusty cars driving slowly, Lover Boy blaring from crackly speakers, drinking Mickey Ds, smoking local, and hollering out the car window on hot Indiana summer weekend nights.

Like how they say the Inuit have 17 words for "snow", Americans have had to develop a lexicon for gun violence.

Me too.  That's why I linked to that article...zero Inuit examples vs 60+ skier examples seemed to support my point well enough.

Sadness despair and grief seems to have no effect on shooting after shooting, maybe some levity will help.

Not downplaying the crazy, but Kissimmee was a drive-by in a slum area at a convenience store, and likely was a gang event, 1 dead 3 injured. Crimes like this have been going on around the country for decades, but technically they haven't been categorized as mass shooting events.

That's my thought too. They have hitching posts at the grocery stores down there
