On April 20, 1999, two disturbed teenage boys Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris began a killing rampage at Columbine High School in the suburban town of Littleton, Colorado. This was considered one of the worst school shootings to occur at that time. In the morning of April 20, before noon, the two juveniles had killed 13 people to include 12 students and 1 teacher; they also wounded another 23 people before turning the guns on themselves. This event would change the theories as to why school shootings would occur.

Holmes is taken to the Colorado Mental Health Institute at Pueblo for supervision. A month later, Holmes Attorneys defended his client, by saying, "Mr. Holmes suffers from a severe mental illness and was in the throes of a psychotic episode when he committed the acts that resulted in the tragic loss of life and injuries sustained by movie goers on July 20, 2012” (“Colorado Theater”, 2017). Holmes defense to his actions was because he believe the reason he killed everyone is because he was unable to control his actions because of the movie he watched. Theory of Holmes’ Case My theory of this case is to believe this case wasn’t a case of insanity because this individual clearly planned his actions. Holmes stepped out of the movie theater and returned wearing protective gear.
Therefore, colleges should definitely prevent people who have a background of violence and crime from speaking at their campuses for the safety of their students.

Policies for School Shooting Prevention The recent shooting in Parkland, Florida at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School by Nicolas Cruz left 17 dead and 14 injured. People heard about this and want to take action to prevent others from doing the same. Parents want to know that schools are taking measures and making policies that will help prohibit these things from happening. Some ways that we can help to counteract school shootings and prevent severe injuries and deaths is by having armed guards/officers at our school, arming teachers that are qualified with guns, and enabling the 'red flag ' law. Taking these type of actions will help identify possible shooters and stop them if it happens.
“I rushed….my grief.” The bride, the bridegroom and Leonardo are characters who the writer has portrayed being effected by an ominous influence of supernaturalism and blood vendetta.

He was stealing the bread!”, proving how people are selfish by the cause of only thinking about himself and no one else. He did not care about how hungry everyone else was and did what he wanted to do.
