It's unusual as far as shootings go.

  • It was a pair of shooters

  • They'd constructed a bomb to kill far more people than they planned to shoot

  • Pre-9/11

  • Took place during the Assault Weapons Ban

  • There was lots of video evidence

  • They both talked about committing murder a TON in class and out of class

  • Obtained their weapons via straw purchase and other illegal means

There was a lot of thought and planning that went into the event, but thanks to the stupidity of the shooters, none of their bombs were effective. Hundreds could have died.

And it isn't like we are required to take the exact same training every year. After the fifth time you take it, you can't avoid actually knowing the material.

That sort of data analysis is basically my job. NPR has had some very thought provoking pieces.

Is that 366 shootings that had police or SROs on site?

Been there five years. OMB and the CBO are always on our asses.
