Historical School Gun Deaths And Injuries

What is not being reporting is that school gun deaths and injuries on average between 1900 to 1959 was 10.8 and 5.3 respectively per decade. During this period, school gun deaths were few, families were in unity and morality was the norm.

 

This all started to change in the 1960's when the following occurred: Prayer in 1962 and The Bible in 1963 was taken out of public schools. There was an increase in violent movies. The Welfare state started via the Great Society program in 1964, and husbands started to abandon their families. Gun school deaths and injuries jumped to 44 and 65 respectively.

In the 1970's, abortion was legalized in 1973, first violent video game, Death Race introduced in 1976. Increase in TV and movie violence and pornography becomes epidemic. Gun school deaths and injuries jumped to 36 and 75 respectively.
 

In the 1980's, the Ten Commandments were taken out of the public schools and the immorality of society worsen. Gun school deaths and injuries increased to 51 and 164 respectively. A substantial increase over the 1970's.

 

In the 1990's, the Gun-Free School Zones Act went into effect. School murders increased by 55% over the 1980's. Instead of making schools safer, gun free zones have become a magnet to draw evil people who want to kill and maim.

 

In the 2000's, Progressivism accelerates as people abandon the absolute truth. Without it, morality is good today and immorality is right tomorrow. Today good is evil and evil is good because people are living in a Godless society. School murders increased to 110.

 

From 2010 to July 2018, gun school deaths and injuries increase to 173 and 278 respectively. Dual heterosexual parent household has decreased from 73% in 1960 to 46% in 2013. In 2012, Alaska, Colorado, Oregon and Washington, legalized marijuana for non-medical use. Thereby allowing people to do stupid and evil things when they are high on drugs. 

 

We have created a society that is morally bankrupt, and the victims are our children who have lost faith in authority due to our moral duplicity. Guns are not the problem. The problem is immorality and a Godless society. As our society continues to abandon Christian moral values and gun free zones stay intact, these murders and injuries will continue.

 

People must remember that guns do not discharge by themselves. It takes a person to pull the trigger, who kills others. If all guns were banned, killings will continue due to the evilness of people. They will choose others weapons, which are many, to do their evilness.

 

Wake up America to the truth about this problem and abandon the lie that is told by the media, many politicians and people who want to control others by disarming them and making them defenseless.

Fabulous article.
 I would add that every last mass shooting since Columbine include one or more of the following three factors in the shooter.
 
1) Psychotropic drugs
2) Islam
3) Pornography

Those are some interesting theories.  Or perhaps the fact guns are far more lethal than guns of the past, a single shooter is capable of doing a lot more damage.  So I’d like to see the data behind your numbers.  Specifically, I’d like to see if the quantity of gun incidents is roughly the same, with the difference only being the quantity of dead.  That should prove once and for all that it’s about the guns and not moral decline.

In 1919, before we had gun regulations in 1934, we had a Tommy Gun with 1,500 RPM, yet had no mass shootings.
John Minehan Added Nov 24, 2018 - 8:23am
Actually, these types of mass casualty events are not uncommon internationally and the largest number of people killed was in a bombing in 1927.
 
But don't let facts get in the way of a good story.

Thomas Napers:
 
The first widely seen semi-automatic pistol, was created by John M. Browning in 1910. In 1914, Browning also introduced the first semi-automatic rifle. Since this time there has been many semi-automatic pistols and rifles available to the public.
 
The Thompson submachine gun ("Tommy gun") was invented by John T. Thompson in 1918. It was banned in 1934 from public use. For 20 years the Thompson submachine gun was available to the public, but there were no mass shootings and deaths.
 
The semi-automatic pistols and rifles have been around since the early 1900's, which parallels the statistic on school gun deaths and injuries. Between 1900 and 1960, school gun deaths and injuries were far and few between and averaged 10.8 and 5.3 respectively per decade.
 
What has changed since 1960 is the vast moral decline of our society and it's regards to other people. Implementation of the foolish and ill conceived gun free school zones, which are an invitation to someone who wants to kill and maim.

Thomas Napers:  You forget one major part of gun violence - it takes a human to hold and fire the weapon; they do NOT fire themselves anymore than your toaster will put bread into it and start it cooking.

Ryan Messano:  True, and you could even own a field artillery piece if you wanted one back then.  Or a Gatling gun.  I remember going into a pawn shop and picking up any gun I liked the look and feel of with no requirement to show ID, register or license.  That all came much later.

John Minehan:  Don't forget all the mass shootings of civilians that occurred during the 1930s up until 1945, after guns were confiscated by the governments of Germany and Italy.  The confiscation of guns and ammunition by the government does NOT make you safer - every despot throughout history knew this basic fact.  And the Second Amendment was not for hunting or sport shooting - it was aimed at controlling the government, not the government controlling the citizen.

So the fact that any nutter can arm themselves to the teeth with the latest military style semiautomatic has nothing to do with it.
It's the godless society - of course it is.
Stone-Eater Added Nov 24, 2018 - 10:44am
Switzerland has never had a mass school shooting. And we are a way more godless society. Europe is more free on sexuality, porn or drugs.
 
Now figure. Probably it has to do with the fact that overall we're less poor and better educated as the regular US guy.
Ryan Messano Added Nov 24, 2018 - 10:44am
Actually, we just need to disarm liberals like Badlose.  You’re the ones constantly treating gun free zones like the O.K. Corral.
Rusty Smith Added Nov 24, 2018 - 10:52am
I see a correlation not a cause.  I do agree that the frequency of violence is a cultural thing, not something that is prompted by the availability of weapons, but not that the culture changed BECAUSE religion was slowly sidelined.  Religion may have been pushed aside for the same reasons violence increased.
 
Relating homicide rates to guns is flawed because homicides happened before guns existed and just because they became a preferred tool as they got easier to get, doesn't mean people who had them were any more likely to be violent than they were before they had guns to be violent with.  If you could take away all the guns, like they did in the UK, homicide rates might not change at all.
 
Similarly if you put prayer and the ten commandments back in the school curriculum it might not have any effect on the type of person who is inclined to shoot up a school.  They are not any more likely to pray or be influenced by the ten commandments than they are to be discouraged from shooting up a school because doing so breaks lots of laws.
Sunshine Kid Added Nov 24, 2018 - 10:58am
Stone-Eater, as I understand it, every household has to have a gun.  That would tend to make criminals less likely to bother anyone.  It's far easier to rob those who are defenseless.
Sunshine Kid Added Nov 24, 2018 - 11:03am
Ryan Messano, that's why I never bother with "gun free zones".  I'm always armed, but not openly.  So far, I've never had to pull out a weapon except at target practice or hunting.
Ryan Messano Added Nov 24, 2018 - 11:11am
That’s awesome, Sunshine Kid.  I’m getting my concealed carry.
 I live in a state with a lot of liberals, and these types are apt to spontaneously erupt in gun free zones with heavy weaponry.   I will pray for them as I introduce them to the hereafter.
 
I’m kind of glad police are stationed in city council meetings.  Deranged liberals are quite incapable of rational thought, as the WB liberals nicely demonstrate, and are often a risk to start shooting places up.
Sunshine Kid Added Nov 24, 2018 - 12:19pm
I've had guns for over half a century.  Never registered, nor applied for a license.  I got them long before states and cities began "regulating" the ownership of guns.  I believe the second amendment states quite clearly "SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED."  Moreover, read Article six, second paragraph of the Constitution.  State law does NOT trump the Constitution, and all judges are bound by the Constitution, irrespective of any local law to the contrary.
Rusty Smith Added Nov 24, 2018 - 2:49pm
Sunshine Kid I've had guns almost half a century but unfortunately even 50 years ago pistols were required to be registered where I lived.  Fortunately for me the recordkeeping was so lax that I don't think the government still has records of my older purchases.
 
I've seen the focus from anti gun folks move from attempts to ban "Saturday Night Specials", to the more recent attempts to ban "assault rifles" even when they have trouble identifying what is and isn't an assault rifle, and can't show how taking them has reduced crime.
 
Despite all the laws, we can't see much of a difference in homicides between cities that have strict gun control and those that don't.  By all appearances most gun laws are wastes of time and money if the object is to save lives.

Yes we all have guns, at least most. But without army ammo. We have to buy ammo in shops showing a gun license. Or we choose the black market LOL
Rusty Smith Added Nov 24, 2018 - 7:17pm
Stone-Eater I suggest you start reloading, I've been doing that since I was 13 years old, and so far there are no restrictions on the reloading components or equipment.  About the only think I don't reload is rimfire.
 
Where I live I don't have to show ID when I buy ammo, but they did try getting a requirement for a thumbprint and a "license" to buy ammo  that would have to be renewed every few years.  I think it was challenged and that's why it's not being done.  I've bought up to 30,000 rounds at a time when the price was right.
 
The ammo laws are easy to bypass, anyone who walks around where people shoot at ranges or in the hills can find enough ammo on the ground to rob a liquor store or do most other illegal things with a gun.  Criminals aren't exactly stopped by ammo restrictions.
Sunshine Kid Added Nov 24, 2018 - 9:12pm
Rusty Smith:  The whole point of gun control laws is ripped apart in your last paragraph.  Well said.
Ward Tipton Added Nov 26, 2018 - 7:27am
When I was a kid we had a rifle rack behind the seat of the driver on the school bus. Pistols? We generally just carried them with us, even in class. Never had a mass shooting. 
 
I am still waiting for a refutation of the violent crime disparity between Chicago and Kennesaw, Georgia.
