“This is not an epidemic”
Mass school shootings are incredibly rare events. In research publishing later this year, Fox and doctoral student Emma Fridel found that on average, mass murders occur between 20 and 30 times per year, and about one of those incidents on average takes place at a school.

Schools are safer than they were in the 90s, and school shootings are not more common than they used to be
Whew! That's a relief. Now we don't need to do anything about the shootings and can tell the parents in Florida to go to Hell!

I disagree.

School shootings are becoming more common and what is worse, shootings where they are targeting as many students as possible have increased too.
