I saw a recent post by someone else on a site and it got me thinking what if the news had to report the headlines with full disclosure information?

So instead of simply:
Mass Shooting at Umpqua Community College in Oregon

The headline would read:
Mass Shooting in a gun-free building at Umpqua Community College in Oregon
or
Shooter Breaks Established Law By Actions At Umpqua Community College in Oregon
Or instead of:
Mass Shooting in Aurora Colorado Movie Theater

We would receive:
Mass Shooting in a gun-free Aurora Colorado Movie Theater
Or very recently:
Northern Arizona University Campus Shooting

Would be:
Fraternity Fight After Party Led To Shooting On gun-free Campus
Maybe I’m the only one, but there seems to be a pattern and it is not solely mental illness.
