School shooting deaths are a small fraction of the shooting deaths that occur in our country, and that in turn is a small fraction of the overall deaths in our country each year. However, there have been concerns expressed to me by parents and grandparents of students in Las Cruces about students being afraid to go to school and fearing for their lives while at school. This is having a negative impact on their learning and their lives. Additionally, there seems to be a correlation between the number of people killed and injured, and the weapons used.
