Mark Funkhouser writes here about the educational value of showing what gun violence does.  Publish the pictures he says. 'The media  censors disturbing images. We need to be disturbed.' 'The power of pictures was demonstrated again in 1968 during the Vietnam War's Tet Offensive. Vietnam was called 'the Living Room War' because of the way television brought its carnage directly into the homes of the American people in a way that was without precedent. I think that gun control has now become as emotionally charged and intractable as civil rights and the Vietnam War once were.  I can think of no more respectful way to treat the dead than to allow the loved ones of those who have been slain to show what actually happened to them.'

My only comment is this-->

No-one is saying that we have no rights to have guns...just as no one prevents you from driving a car... but requires a license! This is because the NRA wants it! What we the people NEED is a law that protects us from bullets in the hands of children, criminals, terrorists and craziest. We are alone in the world in the slaughter of our people by guns--- guns that are owned not by immigrants or terrorists, but by Americans; this continues as our corrupt government caves to the lobbyists who care only about $$$ not lives.

and BTW entertainment news will spend a few days on this abominable tragedy, and then like the horrific tragedy at the schools, it will disappear ..poof... and we will go back to listening endlessly to the racist tweets and grievances of that "needy brat' who is president.
