As I’ve been saying: Ban schools, not guns
Is that why so many of these shootings happen at school or work? I remember high school as a place of great injustice . . .
Actually there have been adults who return to their old school where things hadn’t gone so well for them. Of course, we think of Adam Lanza.
But a very similar case occurred back in 1989. Patrick Purdy killed 5 and wounded 29 at an elementary school in Stockton CA. That case didn’t quite have the same impact for several reasons. One, of course, is that the victims were poor Southeast Asians, not upper middle class white folks from a nice community in CT.
