Mass Shooting On Greyhound Bus. National Media Silent

Have you ever noticed how the talking heads in mass media pick and choose which stories to be outraged over, even though the story lines are basically the same? Well, just like these, this is another one of them.

This past Monday 1 person was killed and 5 others were shot in a mass shooting on a Greyhound Bus in California. Witnesses said that Anthony Devonte Williams was cursing and muttering incoherently when another passenger asked him to be quiet. He then allegedly pulled out a gun and began firing indiscriminately shooting 6 people before the other passengers subdued him. A 51 year old woman from Columbia was killed. The bus which was in route during the shooting pulled over and Williams was taken off the bus by the passengers and he was later arrested. Aside from the gun, several magazines were also found leading to speculation as to his motive. But once again, mass media has decided to report this story in passing and have dropped it. Why is this one different from others that they use to exploit for gun control? As a related side note, the Greyhound website says that they do not allow people to carry explosives, dangerous chemicals and firearms on their buses proving again that such laws only disarm law abiding citizens leaving them defenseless against criminals.
