The tally is at 18 now. It was at 12 only two weeks ago. That was quite the sobering search.

That's just incredible, really. I'm sure nothing will be done and every incident will be forgotten when a new one happens.

To be fair, that's still a constant rate of 3 per week, so it doesn't look like V day has had any effect. Not that that's not a completely fucked up number in the first place though.

Gee-fucking-gee, America. This is what happens when you deny people proper access to mental health services.

At this rate I think I'd almost blame it more on the way the national media glamorizing school shooters. My local news station had made a point of refusing to show the Aurora theater shooter's mugshot or say his name, right up until his trial ended. Then on the night his sentence finally gets handed down Nightly News with Lester Holt starts out the broadcast by plastering his mug everywhere with the headline AURORA THEATER SHOOTER JAMES HOLMES CONVICTED. I was floored by the contrast. Fucking vultures, the whole lot of them.

I think it's a mixture of multiple things and it can't be placed on one reason. That reason, going against the people on my Facebook timeline, is not because teachers didn't carry guns.
