There have already been 18 school shootings in the US this year

There have been 18 school shootings in the first 45 days of 2018, according to a nonprofit group.

Everytown for Gun Safety, a gun control advocacy group, had recorded 17 school shootings on their website prior to this afternoon's shooting in Parkland, Florida.

Today's shooting marks the first of the year in Florida. There were three shootings at different schools in Texas, two in different California schools and two in different Michigan schools, according to Everytown's data. There are 10 other states that had at least one shooting.

In eight of the 17 school shootings recorded by Everytown, a gun was fired but no one was injured.

The NRA/ILA/GOA can be proud of these statistics. After all, the "Second Amendment Solution" is the preferred right-wing response to society's problems -- isn't it?
