Since 2013, 70 people have been killed and 118 injured in 46 school shootings, according to a school shooting tracker NBC News is making public. As of December 19, 2021, it has been 19 days since the last school shooting.
Combine this with the recent School Shooting Day TikTok Challenge, we at WokePA can not support books that in great detail describe School Shootings. We feel it gives potential school shooters notes on how to do these horrible acts.
