Despite Increased Security, School Shootings Continue

WASHINGTON (February 2, 2014) The number of school shootings in the U.S. hasn’t really declined, despite increased security put in place after the rampage at Connecticut's Sandy Hook Elementary School in December 2012.

In Pennsylvania and New Mexico, Colorado and Tennessee, and elsewhere, gunfire has echoed through school hallways, and killed students or their teachers in some cases.

An Associated Press analysis found that there have been at least 11 shootings this school year alone.

Experts say the rate of school shootings is statistically unchanged since the mid- to late-1990s, but still remains troubling.
