| School shooting |
|Shootings in schools, almost always by males.|
School shootings are shootings carried out in school, typically by angry young men. They are increasing in frequency in the 21st century.
They are particularly common in USA, are almost always carried out by men, which Jackson Katz associates with the "tough guise" culture of violence and insensitivity around masculinity.
John Taylor Gatto underlines the violence of the school institution itself, and addresses the point about the lack of female shooters in his talk Beyond Columbine.
School shootings have occurred since the mid 19th century when forced schooling was introduced to the USA.

|Mass shooting||“The government encouraged the manufacture and importation of military firearms for the criminals to use. This is intended to foster a feeling of insecurity, which would lead the American people to voluntarily disarm themselves by passing laws against firearms. Using drugs and hypnosis on mental patients in a process called Orion, the CIA inculcated the desire in these people to open fire on schoolyards and thus inflame the antigun lobby. This plan is well under way, and so far is working perfectly. The middle class is begging the government to do away with the 2nd amendment.”||William Cooper||1991|
