    Yes, but the point isn't where they happen, but where they do not.
    They both do and to not happen at places where people have ready access to guns, but they do NOT happpen where they DO have that access.

    1. DARE days are scheduled ahead of time - the students are made aware of them before hand.

    2. DARE days are quite common.

    3. Answer the question.

    So what percentage of days are DARE days(and what is a dare day)?

    I did answer your question by the way. In the case where the killer is a student, and they know about a dare day, and they plan things in advance, then they would take it into account. In that very specific situation, which has never to my mind ever happened, you might have a point.

    And yet the places where they do have access have lower concentrations of people, either always or over time, than the places without. SO it could be that there are other factors at play. Just maybe murders are more likely at schools because there are several hundred to several thousand people every day, meaning that the killers target is more likely there.

    Only if you are begging a question or you are forcing the inquiry to follow the conclusion.

    They both do and to not happen at places where people have ready access to guns, but they do NOT happpen where they DO have that access.
    Which is also because places where people have ready access to guns are also places that wandering insane people don't have easy access to the locale.

    Mass shootings have nothing to do wtih the second amendment for either side of the argument. It has to do with insane people killing people and where they are more likely to be found.

    Some of us can even do so at a much more intellectual level than you!

    Why are insanse people SO much less likely to be found where there are people with guns than where there are not?

    Possibly true, but this only means that the number of shotings would be less, in proportion to the number of people.
    Show that the number of people is proportional to the number of shootings.

    Umm, because people in general are less likely to be found in highly secured areas. Just a guess though....
