The school shooting in Parkland, Florida will mark the 8th school shooting in the U.S. in 2018 resulting in injury or death. If that number seems low to you, please remember that we’re just seven weeks into the year.

The other 10 incidents are not worth reporting because no one was injured (other than the 2 guys who committed suicide).

In all, guns have been fired on school property in the US at least 18 times so far this year, according to incidents tracked by Everytown for Gun Safety, a gun control group. In eight of these cases, a gun was fired on school property, but no one was injured. Another two incidents were gun suicides, claiming the lives of one student and one adult on school property.
