Interesting statistics, and it is rare, thankfully. I believe that this isn't just a "school shooting" problem (ie, Las Vagas), and those coming up with ways to barricade ourselves in our school buildings are probably focusing on the wrong thing. We have far too many guns in circulation in the US, and many of those guns are tactical killing machines - I'm not talking hunting rifles! I live in a hunting, rural-ish state, but many here are concerned about assault weapons and semiautomatic guns getting into the wrong hands.
