This map shows every school shooting since the massacre at Sandy Hook.

Today's tragedy at Reynolds High School in Troutdale Oregon is not the last tragic incident of murder in our schools -- just the next one. The NRA Neocons who control our elected officials will see to that.

It's not been a week since an armed gunman shot four people -- killing one -- on the campus of Seattle Pacific University in neighboring Washington State. It's the fourth multiple shooting in six days.

The Washington Post has the usual details:

"A gunman wielding a rifle shot and killed a student at Reynolds High School in Troutdale, Ore., on Tuesday morning, creating a frantic scene outside the suburban high school as police rushed to the area and students and staff were evacuated.

"The 'lone gunman' is dead, Troutdale police chief Scott Anderson said at a briefing with reporters.

"In addition to the student who was killed, a teacher sustained non-life-threatening injuries, Anderson said.

"'This is a very tragic day,' said Linda Florence, superintendent of the Reynolds School District.

"There was no word yet on if the gunman was a student or otherwise affiliated with the school, which is located about 17 miles east of Portland."

As we frequently ask on our nightly program, what will it take for Congress to protect its citizens, rather than special interest groups? It seems there is no number of dead bodies or murdered children that will do the trick, Truthseekers.

As the above map shows, today's shooting is the 74th since Sandy Hook Elementary. In today's Orwellian political universe, corporations are people, money is free speech, and guns are protected over human beings.
