Another Day, Another Shooting. Boring!

Daniel Oliver, The Federalist

Here’s an idea for limiting mass shootings that liberals haven’t considered yet: restrict news coverage of them. There is some evidence (and it seems plausible) that the media attention given to mass shooters makes them role models for impressionable individuals who then commit mass shootings of their own. Many media outlets routinely omit the names of sexual victims. If the media don’t stop covering mass shootings voluntarily, perhaps they should be urged, by legislation, not to cover them. Of course, the media would howl. A congressman who doubles as a constitutional scholar should propose the idea.
