And even with having more guns than any other country we still have a pretty low firearm (and overall) homicide rate. And I'd wager that an overwhelming majority of those shooting deaths are gang related, leaving most of us lucky white folks in the suburbs and mountain towns insulated from that violence.

So basically during any given year, there's less than a 0.00001% chance that you or someone in your immediate family will be shot to death by some random psycho. Although incredibly tragic and despicable, the media blows it way out of proportion. If we actually want to do something about school shootings then we should focus on low-income urban public schools where shootings and gang violence are actually a legitimate problem.
