A quick look at the list of school shootings in the United States reveals a lot about our nation and culture. People have been killed by guns at schools in our nation since before our nation was a nation. The first documented school shooting was on July 26, 1764, referred to as the "Ecnoch Brown school massacre" during Pontiac's War. Four Delaware (Lenape) Indians entered a schoolhouse near present-day Greencastle, Penn., and shot and killed the schoolmaster. Nine children also were killed in a melee of weapons. Only two children in the school survived.
