All eyes turned to Great Mills High School in Maryland after a shooting there. But police have investigated, and the story isn’t what it appears to be.
Ever since Columbine, press and commentators alike have been trying to fit everything into the mold of “school shootings.” But the murders today in Maryland fit a much older narrative, one that no law, no policy, no government action of any kind will ever stop:
UPDATE: Police: 17-year-old male shot 16-year-old female, who has life-threatening injuries, and 14-year-old male, who is in stable condition.

This was personal, and not a mass, indiscriminate shooting. The victims were targeted. We can only hope for a recovery for the victims of this heinous act.
