    Well, here's a bit of history overlooked by MANY on the left AND right along with usual suspects/fact checkers of MSM and those associated with political campaigns and offices...

    US' deadliest attack on educational institution happened in 1920s

    Enoch Brown and his students are memorialized at this Antrim Township site in Franklin County.
    School shootings are gruesome and, unfortunately, are nothing new to America. The Enoch Brown school massacre predates the invention of the original Colt revolver by 70 years. But as far as mass-murder goes, no school attack comes close to the Bath School disaster of 1927.

    Everything started when Andrew Kehoe, a Michigan school board treasurer, killed his wife and blew up his farm with dynamite, which detonated simultaneously with explosives he planted at the nearby Bath Consolidated School.

    The crazy Andrew Kehoe looks like a man without problems.
    As rescue workers arrived on the scene, Kehoe pulled up in a truck filled with even more explosives and blew himself up, killing the rescuers as well. In total, 58 people were injured and 45 killed - as many fatal victims as Columbine and Virginia Tech combined. He had just killed 1/6th of the population of Bath Township, a tiny village of 300 resident in Michigan.

    But subsequent investigations showed that the massacre could have been a lot worse, as additional charges had been planted in the school.

    Explosives recovered from under the school, which Kehoe also planned to detonate.
    So, why did he do it?

    Apparently, Kehoe was upset about high taxes, losing his town clerk election, and, oh yeah, he was f**king nuts.

    Those type of drugs can significantly exacerbate psychosis, and provide windows for guiding actions of damaged people to create further damage.

    But let's not minimize the significance of pure evil in these cases, which has always existed...

    It's not important because he didn't use a gun.
