Unfortunate and sad, but true.

"Skipper told NBC News on Wednesday night that the shooting drove home the reality that school violence could happen anywhere, even in a small rural community like Townville, population 3,900."

Seems that it was missed that "school violence" only happens at SCHOOL where most are made GFZs and the occupants are effectively prohibited from effective self defense!

In this case the "kid" drove up and started shooting immediately at kids & a teacher right in front of him. GFZ certainly did not help but I think given the facts that are on the web now, I don't think in this specific case it would have mattered.

Wonder what medications this kid was on, if any.

Certainly seems like a strange set of events.

Of course...GFZs are magnets for this type of behavior is a valid argument to consider.
