About Us

       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. 

If you have any comments, questions, ideas, or know of a shooting at an U.S. school that is NOT in the database or if you notice an error please contact me! Please help raise wareness by sharing and discussing the database.  America's  students deserve much better!
