She's Kidding, Right?

In one week, this

and this

and this

and these are just crimes that have to do with schools.

There is also this and this.

I could go on.

Yeah, and we just had a suicide (by gun) in our neighborhood last night, after a murder (also committed with a gun) a few months ago. Both victims women -- which makes me wonder about statistics. Is the stereotype that it is men and boys who usually shoot themselves & each other accurate? Or are women disproportionately victims?

We gotta do something.
