The blog was about a teacher that was shot to death and it had one of my pet peeves in it, the author for the AP mentioned that the man was in the military. My take is this fact is irrelevant and so why would they mention it. My point was it was anti-military. MK mentioned guns also, in that it was also anti-gun.
So, this is what I am wondering. Why don't we usually hear of an incident when someone is beaten to death, or stabbed, etc? Why does it seem that most of the murders reported, and there are a lot of them, are the result of a firearm? Is it a deliberate anti-gun stance? Is it because the use of a gun is more sensational? What are your thoughts?
