Tampa, Fl, USA – August 10th, 2014 /PressCable/ —
PRESS RELEASE: 10-AUGUST-2014 – Ezdrivingdirections recently published a map and blog post about the issue of school shootings in the United States. The map shows every school shooting that has occurred since 27 Sandy Hook students and teachers were slaughtered by a lone gunman in December of 2012. According to the information associated with the map and story, 74 school shootings have occurred. They are spread across the country and include all age and grade levels including colleges and universities.
Publisher of the website, Zack Beauchamp, commented about the map and accompanying data, “The data comes from Everytown for Gun Safety, a recently formed gun control advocacy group. Everytown defines school shooting as assaults, homicides, suicides, and accidental shootings that take place inside a school building or on school or campus grounds.
He continues, “Huffington Post editor Mark Gongloff mapped Everytown's data and tweeted it out. Finding reliable statistical data about school shootings, but there is no dispute about the statement that gun violence is the United States is a serious problem. Gun homicide deaths are significantly lower than they were twenty years ago, but there are still 11,000 killed each year in homicides with guns as the cause. Another 19,000 die by suicides using a gun.”
The rates of gun deaths is higher than elsewhere in the first world countries. Multiple causes have been put forward in trying to determine how to fix the problem. Gun control lobbyists promote the idea that lenient gun laws in the U.S. are a major contributory factor in both homicide and suicide deaths.
