School shooters usually tell someone they are going to commit a shooting beforehand. If people come forward and tell of a potential shooter’s intentions a crime can be stopped. A potential shooter tells of his/her motives in journals or just simply implies it. Many school shootings can be stopped if more studies are done about the shootings of the past. I have done around twenty years of research on shootings both in the workplace and at schools. I am not a martyr, I just have a passion for preventing violence and trying to make the world a better place.
