    As crazy as this is, it's hardly surprising in the age of social media. Things spread like wildfire, especially after a shooting event. The gun barrels are hardly cool by the time legislators are advocating for more gun control, etc.

    Obviously a different story in this case, but nonetheless another example of how important it is to verify sources, learn the facts and confirm what the reality is behind the story before we react too harshly.
