31 School Shootings in America Since Columbine, Only 14 in the Rest of the World Combined

There have been 31 school shootings since Columbine. School shootings in every other country in the world COMBINED since that time is 14. We’ve created complex systems and over-funded programs to monitor foreign terrorists in every country, but somehow we’ve overlooked the terrorists at home. No one ever knows how these people got their guns or why they were given a pass on psychological evaluations. Somehow, in this complicated, brilliant, and resourceful society, where we can design a way to share cell phone content by touching two phones together, we can’t decipher the reasons these shootings keep happening nor a way to make it stop. As social critic George Carlin once said, “we have bigger houses and smaller families; more conveniences, but less time; we have more degrees, but less sense; more knowledge, but less judgment; more experts, yet more problems,” in other words, we’re missing something; we’re moving ahead, but all while falling backwards.
