A look at some of the deadliest US school shootings
There have been dozens of shootings and other attacks in U.S. schools and colleges over the years, but until the massacre at Colorado's Columbine High School in 1999, the number of dead tended to be in the single digits.
The massacre in Uvalde, Texas, which killed 14 students and a teacher, is the deadliest shooting at an elementary school since the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012 that killed 20 first graders and six adults in Newtown, Connecticut.
We will never move conservatives on this issue, dead children didn’t move them with sandy hook and it won’t now. It’s time to become a single issue voter. Anyone that takes money from the NRA is out. Anyone that doesn’t support gun reform is out.
Senator Chris Murphy (@ChrisMurphyCT): "The 14 kids dead in an elementary school in Texas right now. What are we doing? What are we doing? Just days after a shooter walked into a grocery store to gun down African American patrons we have another Sandy Hook on our hands."

My heart is heavy today thinking of the 20 children and six teachers we lost nine years ago at Sandy Hook Elementary. All kids deserve to be safe. The need for common-sense gun safety reform has never been greater. We need action from Congress to address gun violence.
Nine years ago today, we lost 20 precious first-graders and six heroic educators at Sandy Hook Elementary School. As a nation, we owe the families of Newtown — and all the other victims of gun violence — more than our prayers. We owe them action.
Nine years ago, 20 children & 6 educators at Sandy Hook were brutally murdered in an act of evil and terror. While we continue to pray for the Newtown community, we are in awe of their courage & resilience: turning pain into purpose by fighting to end the horrors of gun violence.
On this day nine years ago, 20 first graders at Sandy Hook Elementary School were killed, along with six school staff members, in a rampage that haunts the nation to this day. @JohnBerman and @kaitlancollins remember them.
