And a read of this shows that only 3 of these are what most people mean when they say "school shootings". This list includes a kid on a bus getting hit with a stray bullet from a drive by shooting, a drug deal gone wrong on school property, and a kid nicked by a pellet gun. None of these are what people think of as a "school shooting".

If you can't even be honest about the problem, why should anyone listen to your solution?
There are no stupid questions, but there are a lot of inquisitive idiots.
