TO REDUCE SCHOOL SHOOTINGS, HOW ABOUT PRESS CONTROL?

Whenever there is a school shooting, liberals try to capitalize by pushing for more gun control. But a recent story here in Minnesota reinforces a point that we have made before: would-be “shooters” are usually copycats who admire the fame that prior mass murderers have achieved. If we really want to cut down on school shootings, in particular, the most effective measure would be to prohibit news media from reporting on them; or, perhaps, bar them from reporting the name of the shooter.

Considering all of their tut-tutting about civility, eliminationist rhetoric and talk of banning gun-related words from public discourse in early 2011, I’m sure the MSM will eagerly go along, right?
