It Has Happened Again, Too Often - Another School Shooting in America

Sadly, there's been another school shooting in the United States (US) which has resulted in unfortunate deaths and the grim affirmation of the clear and present danger guns pose to innocents across the country.

According to media reports, a male student, on what would be his 16th birthday, opened gun fire with a 45-caliber weapon at Saugus High School, Santa Clarita, California, before 8:00 a.m this morning, and in the deadly echo of bullets, five students were shot - two have since dead, while others, including the gunman, remain hospitalized with injuries.

Thus far in 2019, there have been 84 incidents of gunfire at schools across the US with 30 shootings on schools' grounds, including today's tragedy. In 2018, according to USA Today, there were 104 incidents as the US experienced 340 mass shootings that year - almost one-each-day for the entire year of 2018. On top of such gross stats, 11,000 people are killed each year in America from gun assaults.

From Florida, to Colorado, to Connecticut, to California and across the breath and length of the US, too many children and adults are killed by guns. And in spite of the recurring deadly events, there has been very little and in most cases, nothing done to reverse the ease of access to firearms across the Republic.

Prior massive crimes at schools Columbine, Sandy Hook, Parkland and other horrific events of violence against and within schools and coupled with other mass killings have failed to defeat the US gun lobby's grip to maintain ease of purchase, possession and ownership of firearms in America.

Yet, the reality remains: too often children and adults are cut down by gun violence without any meaningful national action to restrict the proliferation of firearms.
