For many, this shooting and other recent school shootings are evidence that guns are a menace to society and should be heavily restricted. Others argue the issue lies somewhere else.
To say that it’s unlikely to see the two sides come together on this issue is to put it rather mildly. Yet on Twitter, one user posted some rather fascinating information that might surprise folks on both sides. Bruh I’m looking at the history of school shootings. Mind-blowing, kids brought guns to school until the 70s. Only 3 school mass shootings between 1903-1966. What happened?
(Didnt take off until the 90s) Well, this is accurate in regards to the shootings , but not entirely true.
You see, I graduated in 1992. That’s well after the point when guns supposedly couldn’t be taken to school, according to this tweet. Yet in reality, there were guns at school almost every day of the year.

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
