Left-Wing Violence

A popular meme on Facebook has been the notion that recent mass-killings in schools (Virginia Tech; Newtown) have been conducted by Democrats.  Some of this has been obviously wrong: the Virginia Tech shooter was identified as a "Registered Democrat" and was from Northern Virginia, and as everyone knows, no one in Virginia is a "registered" anything, since we don't register by party here.  And once, as an adoptive Virginian, I read this, I had little interest in fact-checking the other assertions.

Nevertheless, in today's Denver Post, a story appears identifying the shooter in yesterday's Arapahoe High School shooting as an adherent to a series of far-Left views.

I wonder if "The Richmonder" will be touting this confluence of politics and violence?
