Ezra Klein has observed, “of the 12 deadliest shootings in U.S. history, six have taken place since 2007.” This is a separate problem. What is causing this is not yet known and probably under-investigated, but it is certainly not guns.

The American republic stood for almost two hundred years before the first school shooting occurred. Something is awry, to be sure; to blame guns is a mistake.

Lizzy Borden killed her mother with an ax many times. I don’t recall banning axes after that tragedy....Oh and that was in the 1800’s (or at least a long time ago).

It was a bombing, not a shooting, but the first school massacre took place in 1927. And it is still the deadliest.
