    Yep, but most tend to be aggregate affairs, not the intimate details of any single "everyday" incident. Like this story:

    Oh...well then there couldn't have been a shooting. This is all just a misunderstanding. What a relief.

    Well, yes the location does get attention as opposed to a private home.

    In public places as a mall we can all associate with visiting and realize if someone wants to pull out a shotgun and start shooting you are like a fish in a barrel.

    It gets our attention and curiosity which is evident by both of us stopping and posting in this thread.

    It was not a random, or "mass", shooting - none but the preselected fish were taken from the barrel. Quite possibly, the location was chosen knowing that the intended victims would be caught in a very defenseless position.

    Maybe there aren't enough good guys, with guns.

    Cops--the good guys--show up with a gun; sometimes, two guns. The attacks typically end when, or shortly after, the cops show up.

    Not really. You were saying something to the effect of police and guns...? Please continue.
