Chronicles in Ordinary Time 240: 21 weeks into the year; 213 mass shootings

May 24, 2022
19 children and 2 adults dead

The Washington Post has spent years tracking how many children have been exposed to gun violence during school hours since the Columbine High massacre in 1999.
Beyond the dead and wounded, children who witness the violence or cower behind locked doors to hide from it can be profoundly traumatized.
The federal government does not track school shootings, so The Post pieced together its numbers from news articles, open-source databases, law enforcement reports and calls to schools and police departments.
While school shootings remain rare, there were more in 2021 — 42 — than in any year since at least 1999. So far this year, there have been at least 24 acts of gun violence on K-12 campuses during the school day.
The count now stands at more than 311,000 children at 331 schools traumatized by gun violence.
The Post has found that at least 185 children, educators and other people have been killed in assaults, and another 369 have been injured.

I see headlines every day where ‘conservative’ politicians claim to be protecting the country from the Radical Left [aka social justice]; and now they are bringing ‘god’ into the message with greater force [at a time when the largest denomination in the country has admitted “that leaders falsely claimed they could not maintain a database of offenders to prevent abuse when a secret list of more than 700 abusive pastors had been compiled. No action was taken to ensure the accused ministers were no longer in positions to do harm.”
These people need to leave Creator and Jesus out of these cultural crimes, until they have actually read Jesus’ teachings with the intent of following them.

The graph below proves that Gun Violence is entirely preventable.

All that is required is the will to stop the violence
