VP Biden addresses Gun Control

Vice President Joe Biden will take questions on the issue tomorrow ala Philip DeFranco. My contribution:

Mr. Vice President, can we assume that the perpetrators who shoot children in schools are angry and hoping for some attention at any cost? They want to show their hurt and their middle finger to the world and they know that the media will blast the story all over if they are wild and brutal enough. Assuming this is part of the context, why not remove it? Why not try for a trial period of, say, five years, any school shooting is a local story only? The FCC is supposed to serve the public managing the public airwaves. Why not levy penalties just like are in place now for profane language? Less coverage may mean less violence. Thoughts?
