Cape May - No, there have not been 18 school shootings already this year, as CNBC, Politico, The Washington Post, ABC, The (New York) Daily News, and briefly, a USA TODAY column all reported in the hours since a 19-year-old allegedly slaughtered 17 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, in Parkland, Fla., on Ash Wednesday. “That data point … includes any discharge of a firearm at a school - including accidents - as a ‘shooting.’ It also includes incidents that happened to take place at a school, whether students were involved or not,” according to David Mastio in USA TODAY.
