If there was school shooting each week of the year, which there isn't, that would be 52 shootings a year. That would be about 1 in 7 million people a year in the USA being a school killer. Statistically insignificant but too many in any case.

It appears a significant number are kids raised in wealthy families. Maybe it would help to ban rich kids from owning: firearms, cars, knives, anything dangerous.

Plus, if it was only being done by kids on ASD. There would be alot more shootings. Since it is now has been determined by science to be 1 in 88 kids are on the spectrum.
.
Thing is, if a ASD kid does do violence. It is because the person has said, "Enough is enough. I refuse to be bullied. I will stand up for my self." Unfortunately some of them think that firearms are the only way to show resistance to being bullied. And they add to the hate mongering against folks with ASD.
.
http://www.forbes.com/sites/alicegwalton/2012... when the team broke down bullying as a function of the different types of autism (Asperger syndrome, autism, and “other ASD”), they found that children with Asperger syndrome were actually the most bullied group.

Some do some don't.

One bully that harassed me from elementary school thru senior high. She ended up having a nervous break down when she finally realized what she had been doing in the way of bullying, was wrong. It took at least thirty years after we graduated. for her to have the realization.
.
Most likely was due to her grandkids being bullied in school.

Some of the still living bullies get it. One got it when she bullied me a bit too much in junior high.

Sweetest left cross I have ever thrown. Not only did it make her stop being a bully towards me. But it also woke up the school staff that I am more than willing to defend myself if it gets too far for me to put up with.
.
It was in many ways worth the suspension I got for it. Since it was one less bully picking on me in school.

I think you forgot a key ingredient: kids raised in wealthy families whose parents are too busy to deal with them, pawn them off on "caregivers", day care providers, nanny's, boarding schools, etc, and later when the kids finally revolt, send them to shrinks , who then prescribe a veritable chem lab of drugs for them to treat their depression, anxiety, neurosis, psychosis, etc. etc. etc.

Agree, the bottom line is many school killers turn out to be rich kids.
