    It has been happening for a long time as the history shows: List of school shootings in the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    But there have been an awful lot in the last few years.

    Students get stabbed in school too, it's just not as visible in the national media.

    Higgins asked if the perception of increasing violence was a true increase or an increase in media coverage. I was simply giving him information that stabbings happen too, but aren't as widely reported. Media are jumpy right now regarding shootings.

    It makes me wonder if all violent crime during school hours is increasing or if it is just guns or if it is just the perception. I'm not entirely comfortable with the amount of publicity given to school shootings. The names of these people should be wiped off the face of the Earth.

    It's time for the media to get a conscience and stop glamorizing this activity to all the nut-cases.

    Poor students, especially Seniors, it's not how I would want to remember graduation.

    But there have been an awful lot in the last few years.

    The number of school shootings sky rocketed after Sandy Hook. Before then they averaged about 5 or 6 school shootings a year. This year alone has seen about 40 incidents so far and the year is only half over.

    High School seems to be causing PTSD for some teens every bit as much as a combat zone. The sooner we understand the mental causes of such violence the sooner we might find a solution.
