Suicides Used in School Shooting Stats
I recall looking up firearm accidental deaths when I was a teen, for my debate class, and multiple stats that suggested suicides were counted in multiple areas. I’m not providing a link, because I’d have to look it up all over again, so don’t take my word for it. I require evidence, and so should you.
However, Lott reported new school shooting stats used by a few anti-gun groups, includes suicides where no one else was in danger. Suicides are unfortunately ever-present, but I personally dismiss these as not being in the same category as fame-seeking school murders.
