About Us

       In August of 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 9 years (and counting) of my life on this project! The fact that a credible quantitative database about shootings at U.S. schools 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! My biggest hope is to begin a civil discourse about how to handle the violence that has invaded America's institutions of learning. We must do better to #FixIt!

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!  America's  students deserve much better!
