Reagan column: It’s still not guns

During the intense media coverage of Wednesday’s tragic events in Parkland, Florida, I was shocked to hear it was the 18th school shooting so far this year.

Eighteen. In 45 days.

That sounds terrible.

That sounds like a huge American crisis that needs to be addressed immediately by our great leaders in Washington.

But that 18 number, which the anti-gun lobby in the media has emphasized without going into the details of the individual incidents, is highly misleading.

None of those previous shootings was anything like the horrible one on Feb. 14 that left 17 students and teachers dead at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

The year’s worst previous shooting, which happened in Kentucky at a high school less than a month ago, left two students dead and 14 wounded by gunfire.

The only other death was a single murder that occurred on a college campus.

Two of the shootings that occurred at one of the country’s 120,000

Trauma team at Vandy still reeling from Marshall Co. mass shooting

NASHVILLE (WKYT) – The medical director of trauma at Vanderbilt University Medical Center is still reeling after the mass school shooting in Marshall County Jan. 23.

“The reflection, the age of these children, it starts to sink in a little bit later,” explained Dr. Oscar Guillamondegui.

In the moment, Dr. Guillamondegui said they were focused on each patient flying in from Kentucky.

“We hear the reports on the radio and they just start coming one after another. We just prepared for each of them as if they were as sick as the next,” he told WKYT’s Miranda Combs.

Vanderbilt University Medical Center is a level one trauma center, like the University of Kentucky Hospital. The distinction means they are able to deal with the most severe trauma cases.

Five of the 14 students who were shot were transported to Vanderbilt.

Motive is still a mystery in mass shooting at Kentucky high school

BENTON, Ky. – A tight-knit rural community reflected Wednesday on the hometown horror of a school shooting that killed two teenagers, injured 18 and sent hundreds of others fleeing for their lives from a place many considered immune from violence.

Police have not publicly identified the 15-year-old accused of opening fire Tuesday at Marshall County High School. Officers said he walked into the “commons” area where many students gather before classes begin and immediately began shooting. Witnesses said he fired a single shot, paused, and then emptied the handgun of ammunition before he tried to escape and was arrested. On Wednesday, authorities said he faces preliminary charges of murder and assault while police investigate what might have prompted the attack.

Vegas mass shooter’s Filipina girlfriend may still face charges

Mariou Danley and Stephen Paddock. INQUIRER FILE

LAS VEGAS — Defense attorneys Tuesday wondered if the Las Vegas Strip mass shooter’s Filipina girlfriend was unfairly being singled out after police lawyers claimed in court that criminal charges may still be in the case.

Las Vegas attorney Craig Drummond described the police statement as “bold when the only person whose name or inference has been put in the news is [the mass killer’s] girlfriend,” the Las Vegas Review Journal reported. https://www.reviewjournal.com/crime/shootings/lawyers-claim-puts-attention-on-las-vegas-shooters-girlfriend/

Marilou Danley was initially considered a person of interest after her boyfriend, Stephen Paddock, opened fire on a concert on October 1 from his 32nd-floor Mandalay Bay room, killing 58 people before fatally shooting himself. But she agreed to cooperate and has publicly said she had no knowledge of his bloody plans.

Drummond said authorities may also be looking

Hard Sun, episode 2 review: this show is ludicrous… yet still entertaining

Meanwhile, Hicks raced to catch a spree killer obsessed with the impending end-of-days. His murders were surprisingly gory, with slit throats and Jackson Pollock-esque blood spatter. I hope any young football fans staying up late for Match of the Day didn’t spill their cocoa in shock.

Former model Deyn, all haunted intensity and fierce physicality, stole the show from Sturgess, whose Mockney accent and SUDDEN bursts of SHOUTING hardly added nuance to his performance. He seemed to be impersonating Idris Elba, star of Hard Sun creator Neil Cross’s other series Luther, without the charisma to quite carry it off.

Don Waney: Still too early to celebrate

BY WALTER DURU

One of the biggest stories about the Niger Delta region of Nigeria today is the killing of a dreaded cultist, Johnson Igwedibia, also known as Don Waney, by a combined team of men of the Military and Department for State Services- DSS.

In a Press Statement issued by the Nigerian Army entitled: ‘End of road for notorious cultist, kidnapper and mass murderer’ – Don Waney, signed by Deputy Director, Army Public Relations, Colonel Aminu Iliyasu, the military announced the death of Johnson Igwedibia.

The statement reads in part: “The authorities of 6 Division Nigerian Army Port Harcourt wish to inform the peace-loving people of Omoku in ONELGA in particular, Rivers State and indeed the entire good people of Niger Delta in general that the notorious cult leader, kidnap kingpin and mass murderer Don Waney is dead.”

Sinn Fein is still trying to hawk evil role models to the young

“A tribute to the men and women who led the struggle against British occupation of Ireland,” they’re available for €20 – quite a bit cheaper than the limited-edition reproduction of a portrait of Martin McGuinness, which is going for €600.

McGuinness’s funeral last year was attended by President Higgins and US ex-president Bill Clinton, who were among those extolling him as a peacemaker. Yet they knew well that McGuinness – the republicans’ favourite deceased terrorist – was certainly personable and, when he wanted to be, courteous and diplomatic, but that he was an unrepentant mass murderer and congenital liar who, until his death last year, was one of the IRA veterans running the republican movement.
