School shootings

Have they mostly been at public schools, or pretty much at both public and private schools?

Does it matter?

They have mainly been in American schools. Itโ€™s tragic. And really sad that nothing could ever be done to prevent it. Just one of those things.

I couldn't agree more.

Certainly not at the right kind of private schools.

What kind of stupid question is this, OP? What is your point?

Don't call it School Shootings. Call it ๐‘ช๐’๐’Ž๐’Ž๐’–๐’๐’Š๐’•๐’š ๐’—๐’Š๐’๐’๐’†๐’๐’„๐’†. โฝแดณแต‰แต— แถฆแต—?โพ.

It is important to highlight the difference between a mass shooting at a school and a school shooting brought on by community violence because the perpetrators often look different and are committing these acts of violence for different reasons. Therefore, the respective solutions look very different, as well.

An overwhelming majority of the 262 adolescent shooters were male, with an average age of 16. But unlike many of the school shootings that make headlines, Sathya said, nearly 60% of the shooters in the study were Black.

About 28% were White, and 8% were Latino. Another 5.7% represented other racial or ethnic groups, including Asian or Pacific Islander and indigenous peoples of the Americas.

Youโ€™re missing the point, r7. There is a difference between directed gun violence that occurs on school grounds and random mass shootings.

R6 I agree - I think someone from the government may want to check out OP's search history.

We all know what the OP is implying.
