ELEVENTH U.S. SCHOOL SHOOTING SINCE JAN 1, 2018.

In Kentucky, two high school students were killed and 18 more were wounded after a 15-year-old boy walked into Marshall County High School with a handgun just before 8 a.m. local time on Tuesday morning and began shooting his fellow students in the common area. The victims are Bailey Nicole Holt and Preston Ryan Cope, both 15 years old. Five other students are still hospitalized in critical condition. “WE ARE ALL AFFECTED BY GUN VIOLENCE WHEREVER AND WHENEVER IT HAPPENS. Tragically once again parents, families and a community are grappling with the horrors of gun violence. Today a 15-year old shooter at Marshall County High School has allegedly killed two 15-year-old students and injured 20 others. Their families, and the entire community in Benton, Kentucky, will never be the same. All parents who have lost children to gun violence once again are feeling their own pain along with aching hearts for these families whose hearts are also aching.” — Toni Wellen, CAGV Chair. (This was just one of at least 11 shootings on school property recorded since Jan. 1, 2018 in America, and roughly the 50th of the academic year.) Kentucky has been given an F by the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence. Kentucky is a major exporter of crime guns and does not require a permit to carry a concealed weapons. This state scores 42 out of 50 as having the weakest gun violence prevention laws in the nation.
