“School shootings season.”

That’s what some threat assessment experts call this time of year, as I detail in TRIGGER POINTS. The heightened danger is fueled by the "copycat" effect—and #Columbine, 23 years ago today, remains a big part of the problem… 1/x
The extent of it is sobering: I documented more than 100 Columbine-inspired plots and attacks in the US in the two decades since the massacre.

“I’m thinking about doing my school the same way,” said one teen who planned an attack for April 20. “Everybody will know my name.” 2/x
Perverse myths about #Columbine went global—just as the offenders wanted. We all need to stop citing “Columbine-style attacks” and reusing shooter images, which further stirs troubled youth to plot violence and even travel to the school, including this recent chilling case: 3/x

"Watching others lose a child and knowing what they feel brings it all back. I don't have a problem with responsible gun ownership, but there is nothing responsible about owning an AR-15."
"If we want teachers to have to ability to make offensive measures, why not non-lethal weapons? It's terrible that we would have to, but if we do, that route should not be firearms." -@TomPrigg2018

I have seen so many heartbreaking tweets from #Columbine survivors praising the resilience of the students of #PARKLAND. Rightfully so. Tragically, these same survivors also are expressing their remorse and regret for not doing the same. 1/
2 things: #Columbine survivors are being shamed by irresponsible and heartless *adults* like @realDonaldTrump @PRyan and every other #GOPhypocrite. #Columbine & #PARKLAND survivors should not have to be the adults in the room solving this #guncontol disaster. 2/
#WeCallBS on every #NRABloodMoney recipient. U will ALL be dragged into the sunlight by every survivor & guncontrol advocate of these tragedies & voted out. We never should have let any survivor down by trusting you to do the right thing in the first place. #BlueWave2018. End
