This still stands as the worst school disaster in US history. It happened in 1927. No gun just dynamite, which one purchased down at the local hardware store.

Make that 46. One little girl hung in for several months until she died of her injuries. One child died a year later.

It goes to show that someone bent on killing will find a way.

Guns aren't necessary.
