Apr. 7—Another active shooter was getting busy with his Second Amendment rights as I sat down to write this Tuesday morning, with no final accounting of this latest swoop of metronomic American carnage yet available at deadline.
The ghoulish tally in Frederick, Md., where the active shooter’s day ended typically in his own death, will attach to the spike in gun violence that began last month in Atlanta and Boulder, where 18 bloody corpses served to illustrate a nation eager to get back to slaughtering each other with real bullets rather than waiting out some soulless pathogen.
But there was more gun news Tuesday.
In Ohio, Tuesday was the day the new state law took effect, officially plunging the Buckeye State into the company of 37 others (including the Keystone State) with so-called stand-your-ground laws in the statutes.
Funny how this works, and by funny I mean, of course, tragic.
