Learn more about School Shootings

Since the Newtown shootings in December 2012, there have been 74 school shootings (1.37 shooting per school week) in the U.S. Opponents of gun control laws claim the media is over-hyping the violence and point to a 49% drop in gun homicides since 1993. Proponents of stricter gun control laws believe that these shootings are an epidemic and every state should require criminal background checks for every gun sale (44 states do not require background).  See recent school shooting news
