Gun Violence Kills Two School Students

February 12, 2016

Two 15-year-old female students were killed in a shooting today at Independence High School in Glendale, Arizona.  A weapon was found near them.   Somewhere the NRA is toasting their hard work to make sure everyone has their Second Amendment rights while two families are now planning to buy coffins.

The continued killing and bloodshed from handguns in America alerts the sane ones in this land we are not doing our job as citizens or parents.  The facts speak for themselves.  Not only from what happened today in Arizona but what happens everyday all over this country from guns and the violence they unleash.

Every day, 48 children and teens are shot in murders, assaults, suicides & suicide attempts, unintentional shootings, and police intervention.

Every day, 7 children and teens die from gun violence:

  • 5 are murdered
  • 2 kill themselves.

Every day, 41 children and teens are shot and survive:

  • 31 shot in an assault
  • 1 survives a suicide attempt
  • 8 are shot unintentionally

    Peter,

    You hit the nail on the head. The rest of the civilized world does not have our level of gun violence–no where near it!–and yet we are supposed to think this violence is normal and accepted here due to special interests who think they should control congress and the national debate.

    Pkarm–this hardly ever happens in the rest of the civilized world. Deal with it. The NRA doesn’t care about America, only people who consider themselves one-man armies — like those crazies in Oregon.

    Yes, the NRA can be blamed—and should be blamed—for what happened today in Arizona. For starters we could point to the NRA opposing “smart gun” technology through blatant falsehoods and the continuous and crazy promotion of conspiracy theories about the federal government. Advances in all sorts of technology that uses what is best known as RFID chips, along with fingerprint identification, and other proven measures to ensure that a gun can only be fired by authorized users could have prevented these deaths today. It is you who can not deal with the real issues when it comes to the NRA.

    Sadly sounds like a murder / suicide and instead of addressing the mental health of these two girls lets take a cheap shot ant the NRA who I am guessing was not even at the scene. Most likely they were have a difficult time with family who were having a hard time accepting the girls personal relationship between them more than the NRA. But yeah its so much easier to blame the NRA than dealing with real issues
