To end gun violence in schools

School shooting is a term that waspopularized in North American media to describe gun violence at educational institutions. A school shooting can be perpetrated by one or more students, either expelled students, alumni, or outsiders. School shootings usually involve multiple intended or actual victims, often randomly targeted.

They often result in nationwide changes of schools' policies concerning discipline and security.
