In 2009, I began the epic task of creating a comprehensive empirical database of shootings at America's schools. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would spend 8 years (and counting) of my life on this project! The fact that a credible quantitative database on U.S. school shootings had never been constructed really bothered me. I seen it as a unique opportunity to make a positive difference for the country I love, especially for America's kids and young adults, so I got to work. I do not support either side in the gun debate. Both sides can & should do much better! Please help by sharing & discussing the databases. My biggest hope is to begin a civil discourse about how to handle the violence that has invaded America's institutions of learning.
