14 -- the number of school shootings since March


14 — the number of school shootings since March, when many districts returned to in-person classes. That’s the most in that period since at least 1999, though the three killed and eight injured was fewer than the 33 people who died in the same timeframe in 2018. https://www.washingtonpost.com/education/2021/06/24/school-shootings-2021-increase/


More escalation. Kids going back to school . . . with guns.

Guns make everything better! Domestic violence, road rage, job disputes and schools.

They get to have their cake and eat it, too.

They flood our society with guns and macho posturing and then blame the ensuing chaos on Democrats.
