As "Natural" As A Traffic Accident

Thousands of Americans die every year, because they were shot. At least that's what this New York Times article says. It seems as "natural" and unnewsworthy as traffic accidents.

Thank G-d, it's still considered newsworthy in Israel, when someone is shot dead, especially when it's a child, like the late Oren Mizrachi, accidentally killed by a friend playing with a gun.

Maybe it's because Israel is a small country, but the number of traffic fatalities and accidents are considered news.
