It seems any act of violence with a firearm in or near a school is considered a “school shooting”. It matters not that the act of violence had nothing to do with the school, happened after hours, or involved no one affiliated with the school as either the shooter or the victim(s).
By now many, if not most, have seen the shootout during a car chase between Las Vegas Metro Police and two suspects in black Ford Expedition. All the major mainstream news channels have shown video from it. The shootout featured one officer shooting at the fleeing suspects through his windshield. This was after the suspects started shooting at the police chasing them. If you are like me, you worried that he would have permanent hearing loss.
You can watch and listen to the chase from the body camera footage of Officer William Umana who is a 17 year veteran of LVMPD.
Thus the question will be do the gun control prohibitionists and their media allies consider this a “school shooting”? Obviously it isn’t but that hasn’t stopped them in the past.
