I was 10 years out of high school and had 2 kids when Columbine happened in 1999. I just used that as an example because that was the first one I can remember that got the media attention, but there have been so many since that it's scary. I'm not saying that nothing ever happened, but it seems like it's happening more frequently in the past couple decades then it did before. Our parents didn't have less things to worry about while we were growing up, just different things, not kids taking guns to school and shooting their teachers and classmates.
