And mass killings actually reached their peak in 1929, according to his data. He estimates that there were 32 in the 1980s, 42 in the 1990s and 26 in the first decade of the century.
These events are no doubt tragic, but they are not becoming more common. We simply know much more about them now because of the 24 hour media circus. The worst attack on a school in American history happened in Michigan in the 1920s.
You made your point but one is still too many. I wonder how many of those shootings happened to kids around the ages of 6? High school and junior high school kids know when to run facing imminent danger. Those kids in Conn are young, they haven't been exposed to that kind of evil with no instinct to run and hide.
I really wish that idiot would have been caught alive to face the consequences and if my girl would have been one of the innocent victims, that guy would endure a very slow and painful death at my hands.
I am still out of sorts over this if yall can't tell
Everyone has a plan, until they get hit.
