School shooting - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

edit#2: still most of these are single shootings up until very recently
It may just be that it's easier to log now with the internet, whereas earlier in the 80s and 90s, there wasn't a wikipedia to immediately upload news to.

With all of this gunning down of people
on an upswing lately (past few months...
even weeks, especially), I'm wondering
if these people are being influenced by
all of this Mayan prophecy bullṦǶḮŤ.

I'm not sure if that's true actually, because I'm not sure what an equivalent country to the US is. In terms of size (both in terms of land and population) Russia and Brazil are two of the closest equivalents to the US, and both have a substantially higher homicide rate.

It wasn't that long ago we had Derrick Bird and Raoul Moat on the loose here in England, the former killed around 13 people and the 2nd killed 1, injuring two more I think. They were within weeks of each other. Then we had Dunblane in the 90's and another massacre in 1987 though I can't remember the name, so it does happen here too.

I think it's a mix of being pushed over the edge and American gun laws.

That would be Michael Ryan in Hungerford

Listen to me. GOD is good all the time in my opinion. I pray to what I call mighty GOD to protect the survivors of this sad tragedy.

Thanks. Hungerford, that's the one. Before I was born though.
