^^ It's becoming pretty common in my school which scares me.

And this is totally irrelevant, but there's a new trend for setting people on fire my school.

Trying to prevent bullying and getting therapy for depressed students is a very good idea, but not all shootings come from students within the school. I think a lot of schools don't have good enough securtiy too, to where someone could just walk in and start shooting.

i.e. at my school theres 30something doors since there are multiple buildings, and during passing periods anyone could just walk onto campus and mingle with the crowd. There are a lot of schools in my area like that and i think that comes down to poor planning

We've had school shootings two times in a year here in Finland. And recently some kid tried to burn down a school.
This doesn't really scare me. This may sound pretty evil, but it makes me excited in some way.Sometimes I hope it'd happen again. I.. like drama and stuff? Gaah, now I sound like an evil moran. But I ain't.

A lot of students at my school are involved in shootings outside of school, but so far none inside school. I agree with EeVie!, besides students themselves bring guns on campus, there's not that much security at most high schools to prevent people from coming in or from students from letting other people in. There's more security on college campuses but still.

Yes, but that's only confronting the problem when it's hours from occuring. Why not go to the root of the problem and try make sure that all students are mentally balanced, or at least getting help.
I know it'd be impossible to make sure all students are stable, but instead of letting it blow up into an explosion of aggression, try help students who may be unalanced.

How can you hope for a school shooting just because you like drama? School shootings aren't dramatic games, they're serious.

Every school should have security. Police inside and outside of the school who are ready for the situation, should it ever happen in that school. It's better to be safe than sorry.
And every person I've ever seen being talked about for a school shooting, looked as if they had undefined mental disabilities. And then there are the people who actually did have mental disabilities. That pretty much explains why they did it.
