Yes, but I'm saying that school is the biggest cause of people becoming school shooters. Without systems of control like school the amount of people who violently lash out at the system of control decreases. I'd say schools are a bigger factor in people becoming school shooters than the alt right.

Do you realize most school shooters were interested in the salt right? And that a school shooting is a mass shooting event that happens to occur in a school? It does nothing to prevent shootings in malls, open spaces, summer camps, places of worship?

I'm confused cuz I feel like you are trying to critique what I said but I agree with everything u said and don't understand how what I said and what u said aren't compatible.

Funny enough, 2020 was the safest year for schools in terms of shootings and other forms of violence. Only 10 shootings throughout the entire year with whole months being shooting-free. A huge record low for the U.S. So far, in 2021, there have been 29 total shootings to date, 21 of which occurred within the last 4 months. Now, I'm not an expert but I kinda feel like quarantine had something to do with it.

yeah, no schools, win-win, hi five!

but yeah, i know of places on planet earth where there are no school shootings but school age people shoot each other outside of school due to gangs and drug trade struggles, or even wars, but there's more reciprocity in that exchange of bullets vs the victims at school which are sitting ducks

Well those things and school shooting are problems with far different non intersecting causes.

for sure, just preempting the “but they’ll shoot themselves outside of school” response
