This was published today by Jim Baca at his Only In New Mexico blog. I think it's a brilliant insight.

Mall Shooting

The American media is something. The NRA and gun manufacturers have them by the throat. Think about it. The print and broadcaster editors have been talking constantly about perceived dangers at the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. They are reporting obsessively on 'possible violence' at the games. Nothing has happened there, although it could. 
Switch back to America. If one were being balanced then every editor should be doing stories and coverage every day on possible violence in America because of readily available guns with no background checks. But they don't. They wait until it actually happens as it did today a a Maryland mall where another well armed crazy person wasted innocent shoppers. 
If we put as much effort into protecting innocents in this country as the Russians and International community are doing in Sochi to protect the games, then I would feel good.
