It's rare to see people post about the bad in there life on social media so it looks like all lives but yours are great. As an adult we know this isn't true but I imagine this is hard on teens.
Agreed, the anonymity of social media and a media that sensationalizes the events.

My dad used to tell me how, in the 60s, high school seniors used to have pickup trucks with gun racks in the back in the parking lot, because they were going hunting or shooting after school. How many high school shootings were there in the 60s? Guns aren't the problem. Something has gone seriously wrong with our society in the space of 40 years. The guns haven't changed much.
I can verify what your dad said, as it was commonplace. Today we have a people problem.
I was a high school student until 1960. After that, I was a college student and yes, we had guns. We had them in the college dormitories and later in the married student apartments - and nobody shot nobody. What we didn't have was network TV, computers with computer killing games and social media.
