Almost every single one of the shootings referenced above was a staged event carried out by the DHS & FEMA so the school could receive funding from Homeland Security. You can read the guidebook yourself. These drills all coincide roughly with these locations. Crisis actors were used to simulate the 'lockdown' and the 'active shooter' situation. Law enforcement, crisis actors and students signed NDA's forbidding them from ever discussing the event, or else they won't receive money. 

To put it simply, nearly all of these 'shootings' never even happened. This includes the mega-massacre in Connecticut which has been overwhelmingly shown to have been a similar staged event.

As for why or how somebody decided to try and pass these off as 'news' stories and make them appear 'real', well that is a whole other thing ... I would assume it was to achieve the desired effect of forcing public opinion in favor of gun-control, which by the look of this article and the comments below, they appear to have succeeded. 

But also I think too many people know this whole thing was artificial and they're simply not buying it. Not to mention it's quite disgusting that they have done this and it seems to have crossed ethical boundaries.

Why isn't America getting its act together? We regard the Constitution as if it's the Holy Bible of America, and many people think this way. However, the Constitution has only created invalid reasons for citizens to be arrested or claimed guilty, or caused controversy between two opposing viewpoints. People view the Constitution as some beautiful work of art possible because it's old and was made by our founding fathers. Our founding fathers were people of work and revolution, people who understood and encouraged the growth of the American civilization. They would not want to see us prioritizing an unmodernized document over the safety of our humanity! Although many of the Amendments could still apply to America today, the development of gun violence has caused fatalities to many innocent people, which was not a problem in the time the Constitution was written. Although some people hold a certain dignity and respect for the Constitution due to its timeliness and artifactual properties, as I do, some of the Amendments NEED to be modernized. If we don't modify or nullify the Second Amendment, possession of guns can still be available to ANYONE across the country. Background checks with fake IDs have a 100% SUCCESS RATE. This means basically anyone can get their hands on a rifle for any needs they're interested in. If we're too scared to nullify the Second Amendment altogether, why don't we atleast have better background checkers or tighten the laws on who can have guns and for what? This should not even be a controversial topic. Our founding fathers want to see us advance and move forward to focus on topics that actually matter instead of fighting over words in a historical document that have caused us nothing but deaths of innocent people, war, and endless controversy.
