Not really Traig. One of the first school shooting in history happened in 1844 in Mississippi when a white student shot a black student for daring to want to learn. There's actually been a few time when the same happened in the last hundred years. The differance now might be a good one: people give a damn and want to know about it on the other side of the country, or around the world. In earlier times it was just ignored or thought not proper to talk about it, and few outside the state or town would even know (My Mom's dad was involed in a shooting at school after a football game, sometime around the 1930s. When I researched it, I found the police report, but not one single news article about it. Why? Because the shooter was a ''good ole' boy'' from a rich and powerful family while the victim was a native American, my grand uncle. Different times, yes, because now we give a damn and try to tell everyone how sick it is. But it's an old sickness and sadly, nothing new..<br />
Thank you for your comment..
