Fort Sill is a place layered in trauma. Japanese Americans were incarcerated there during WWII, and one inmate was shot & killed trying to escape. It also housed a Native American boarding school where children were separated from their families. time.com/5605120/trump-…
It also served as a Prisoner of War camp for members of the Chiricahua Apache tribe who were forcibly relocated from the Southwest to Fort Sill in 1894. okhistory.org/publications/e…
Sites like Fort Sill need to be permanently closed, not recycled to inflict more harm.

Another school shooting in the US today. It’s tragic, it’s horrible & escalating in our gun culture.

I💚Math. An int’l language, it makes sense to me when the rest of the world doesn’t. Especially when it comes to numbers & statistics on guns in the US

Statistically, in the US a shooting incident takes place every 60 hours. We are down to hours in between shootings. Not days, weeks, months or years. It’s HOURS.

Every day in the US, 96 people die from gun violence & 222 people are shot but survive.

Australia, had 4 mass shootings between 1987–1996. After 1996, It took Parliament just 12 days to pass stricter gun laws. They haven’t had a mass shooting since. It’s been 34 days since Parkland.

The US needs to follow their lead.
Here’s how they did it
