Is it that once Columbine happened it gave others the idea to do this?
Worst school killing of all time is still from 1927 *
I think its economics
Because guns didnt exist 20 years ago. *
Smaller ammo clips *
Bath Michigan 1927
We're weaker, more fragile people now. *

1966-2009: 120 public mass killings. 1900-1965: 21...
Availability of semi-automatic weapons? *
Semi-auto guns have been available since 1905. *
We were probably even more armed then than we are now.
Adjusted for population
Of course it is.
I've read of theories that link the uptick in these events
That combined with the rise of national TV? *
It probably does.
There's always been that guy that everyone knows is crazy
It did happen 20 years ago. Not new, unfortunately *
A school shoot up? I don't remember one, but you might
There were the kindergartners in Scotland in '96.
Stockton 1989 was the earliest one in my memory (link)
The Rise and Decline of Mass Shootings
I really wish the media would stop showing everything.
This is why school shootings have increased in frequency.
They are now stressing that this is the worst school
Copycatting happens not just with this type of crime, but
And I don't think they should be interviewing children.
I'm having fantasies of going after these reporters
First expert they talked to on NBC was hammering this point.
No more than in the movies or video games.
I agree with both of you
