    Default turn on tv this am and hear reports of more gun violence

    It was on while I was making breakfast, so I didn't catch all the details, but there were two incidents since yesterday's parade.

    We seem to have reached a point where breaking news would be going 24 hours without someone getting shot.

    I did a quick search online and only founds shootings with deaths at 1 or 2 per incident, so just the usual...

    I did find an NPR article that said there have been 27 school shootings so far this year and it was dated May 24!

    Seems someone gets shot every day.

    I've suggested the various media keep a running total for the year, but they've not done so.

    Does gun violence not count unless there are deaths?

    Seems to not count when there are deaths, even many deaths.

    Non-fatal injuries hurt everyone in the wallets, rather than a few in the heart.
