Another Shooting, this one in Connecticut

No, we don't have too many shootings!  There aren't too  many guns!  Just ask the gun nuts, and don't look at television, listent to the radio, or view news on the internet, or pay attention to any other media. 

I'm betting this will be another murder suicide, given the odds.  I'll update you as news provides more details.  In any case, clearly, places like hospitals are WONDERFUL places to carry firearms, right?  We wouldn't want to stop our gun nuts from taking their fetish objects with them everywhere would we?


Two shot at Connecticut hospital

Updated at 8:15 p.m. ET: Two people were shot Wednesday at a long-term-care hospital in New Britain, Conn., and a suspect was in custody, police said.
The extent of the injuries wasn't known, Mayor Timothy O'Brien told The Hartford Courant. O'Brien said he had been told that the suspect is a worker at the Hospital for Special Care, a long-term acute-care hospital specializing in pulmonary and brain injuries and other complex conditions. 

It wasn't immediately known whether the victims were also hospital employees.
The hospital was evacuated, including all employees not critical to patient care, and the hospital was on lockdown, a spokesperson told NBC station WVIT of Hartford.

  1. Are you aware that news media make our current crime rate look much worse than it actually is? If it bleeds, it leads, even though the crime rate is falling and has been since the early 90s. Some perspective would be good here.
