“Whenever a school shooting takes place like the one at Oxford High School in suburban Detroit on November 30, 2021, it is typically followed by a familiar chorus of questions.
How could such a thing happen? Why doesn’t the government do more to stop these shootings from occurring?
Those questions are even more urgent in light of the fact that the shooting at Oxford High School was one of 222 school shootings in 2021, an all-time high, according to the Center for Homeland Defense and Security’s K-12 School Shooting Database. That’s over 100 more school shootings in 2021 than in 2019 or 2018, respectively the second- and third-worst years on record.”
Dr. Jillian Peterson and Dr. James Densley discuss the rising school shooting threat cases across the nation as well as steps that can be taken to prevent them.
