That's right.  My son is at this minute at a Portland area high school.  Then I click on DKOS during a quick break and see:

'Active shooter' reported at Portland, Oregon high school.
I have to stop immediately and find out:  Is it my son's high school?  Is my son in danger?  His mother went through the same thing.

Fortunately for our family at least it was not our son's school.  But there are at least a thousand families who can't say that.  

Hey, "Judge" Scalia -- you puny-minded jackass (but I insult actual jackasses here, who are harmless and useful)-- do you have even the remotest idea what that is like, for a thousand families to have to be placed, in a single instant, in fear of having a child murdered?

No damned clue.  Instead it's massacre after massacre, and that's on top of the steady rate of gun deaths at 30,000 per year or so.  

So, if this is the society that that is required by the Second Amendment, then your so-called "right" to keep and bear arms has to give way to the right of our children not be murdered, and the rights of all of us not to have in fear.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
