This may be true... but there is literally no worse place on the planet than America to be a student when it comes to getting shot at school.

I'm sure there are nations with higher rates of people under 18yo being shot, but not in schools where they're supposed to be safe to study.

There's a lot more likely ways to be killed than by being shot, but since guns are "icky"...

Which other method is murdering school children at a higher rate in the USA today?

It seems that, by the numbers, being shot & killed is the MOST LIKELY way to be murdered in an American public school today. Church, too, for that matter.

The Latest:

Quote:
The suspect in the mass shooting at a Florida high school refused to let the district continue providing him with mental health services after he turned 18 and the superintendent of schools says federal law kept them from doing anything about it.

Broward Schools Superintendent Robert Runcie tells the Sun Sentinel "You can't make someone do something when the law says they have the right to make that determination."

Nikolas Cruz, now 19, is accused killing 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Valentine's Day.

Runcie says Cruz had attended a school with programs for emotionally and disabled students, and returned to Douglas in August 2016. By November, he says the "situation had deteriorated." With the support of his mother, Cruz refused special needs services and remained at the school until February 2017.

I suspect a lot of gun violence in these countries relates to criminals shooting each other,whereas in the US it's innocent people who are victims.

Negative, it's mostly gang related for homicides with a gun... Even then, most gun deaths are suicide.

Sooo.. since tainted/potent drugs kill, they’re illegal. Why aren’t guns that have the express purpose of being a lethal weapon?

I’m surprised the NRA was affiliated with car rental companies at all, considering Hertz and Avis enforce tyrannical rules like "age restrictions" and "having a license."

So then why are you opposed to stricter regulations on non-law abiding users?
