Top 10 Worst School Shootings

The Top Ten
1 Columbine High School Massacre

This was a rough part for the end of the 90s and changed education laws in America. I couldn't even decide whether this or Sandy Hook should be number 1 because one had little children and the iconic one was the "9/11 of shootings". The perpetrators are named Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold. Schools near Columbine have to be closed early because teachers were afraid that they might come here even though they both committed suicide. They did the shooting and kill themselves because they were bullied. But the ridiculous thing was that they shot many innocent random people. They weren't making movies or doing pranks as other students thought on what they are doing. They are also racists, because one of them called an African-American the n-word and made fun of him until they shoot him. And when they asked a girl if she believes in God, then he SHOT HER because she said yes?! What are these people?! If this never happened, the world will be better and many school shootings would ...more

I went to East Elementary in Littleton during the shooting. High schoolers from Columbine were running toward our school. One if them was shot in the leg. It was the saddest thing I'd ever saw. I would never have been so devastated. They had to shut down our school because people were being shot at columbine and they were afraid the shooters would come over here.

America. Our government always has there head in there A$$. They let Columbine happen, For the more recent people they killed 20 kindergarteners at a little school in Conneticut while our government figures out ways to get themselves richer, and screw us over. We are getting closer to a communist government. We must Revolt!

I have met the parents of some of the victims and it was just heartbreaking to see how 2 selfish teenagers could just take the lives of innocent high school classmates! They even shot a person just because he was black... Talk about racism! They also shot a girl just because she believes in god... Wow!

2 Virginia Tech Massacre

This was a shocker on the news for me.

And I was only 11 at the time.

My mom and grandmother stared at the news report about this.

Everyone at the restaurant we was at stared at the T.V. saddened and devasted about this.

This was another tragic to America.

This one killed more people than Columbine but wasn't as known as that one. So this would take the #2 spot.

In terms of death count, this is the worst.

This was worst than columbine but not Orlando or beslan school seige

3 Sandy Hook Elementary School, Newtown, CT

This should be number 1 because the victims were innocent little children who are 1st/2nd graders. They were also getting prepared for Christmas. Spending family time, snacking on treats, opening presents and watching Christmas movies, but NOPE. They instead got their lives taken by a perverted idiot named Adam Lanza for no reason, who also shot his mother. It's very sad because they were too young to die and never got to start their own lives and do new things we do when we get older. May the children come to Jesus Christ in Heaven while Lanza is burning in Hell for eternity.

I feel extremely bad for the kids, they were getting prepared for Christmas. Instead they get their life taken away from a stupid mentality unstable person who killed his mom.

Everything bad happens in Christmas.

I can't believe that there some people out there who have the nerve to call this fake and say it was staged by the goverment. They probably think it's too unbelievable to be real.

I feel really bad for the parents because it was a normal day, and than they got a phone call saying that their child died.

4 Dunblane Massacre
5 University of Texas Massacre

Got confused with this shooting with the Kent state shooting

6 Beslan School Seige

Why is this not number one? For one is isn't just a 1 hour shooting. It lasted 3 damn days and literally over 200 people where killed. And not to mention bombs where used. This makes what happened in Orlando look like a Nerf Gun fight.

Most of the other ones here only lasted about 20 minutes and only have 5-20 people killed. this however, lasted three DAYS. Hundreds of people got killed and countless got injured. It was so horrifying that even the Russian president cried.

This makes the Las Vegas shooting look like a squirt gun fight.

They even brought tanks

7 Parkland High School Florida Shootings

ANOTHER stupid Valentines Day massacre? Al Capone (aka Scarface) must be doing somersaults in his grave over this crazy fiasco!

Okay here's something. A YouTube account of Nikolas Cruz said "one day I'll become a professional school shooter." Or something like that.

This is terrible to mention, but this is truly a Valentine's Day massacre gone horridly wrong.

My heart is in pieces...how something as crazy as this, which claimed the lives of at least 17 innocent people who still had so much to live for, could still happen in this day and age is beyond shocking.

8 Erfurt Massacre
9 Winnenden School Shooting
10 École Polytechnique Massacre

It was horrible that a man with such hatred towards women would kill innocent people. But, sadder still is, the event has since been used to demonize men everywhere, every December 6.

(I'm a woman, by the way. )

The Contenders
11 Kauhajoki School Shooting

Most known for the YouTube video the perpetrator uploaded before he shooting. There's fottage of the video, but the actual video was deleted by YouTube.

12 Rio de Janeiro School Shooting

11 innocent kids were killed by a ex-student of that school.

This massacre should be the number one because he killed INNOCENT KIDS, that had nothing to do with their problems of past (he was a bullying victim when studying on that school).

Unfortunately these kids died but than. thankfully that the assassin died, before kills other kids.

13 Azerbaijan State Oil Academy Shooting

I'm wondering if you were making a joke on that? It's funny if it was a joke.

14 Chardon High School shooting

Not that bad. It was only a few deaths.

15 Thurston High School (Springfield, Oregon) Rampage

The fact that he killed his parents before he shot children is just wrong. And the fact they had signs of odd behavior and they could have done something about it but didn't is also wrong. It left the community in shock and in devastation, and it still is.

Kip Kinkel deicide to kill his parents before going to school. Then went on a rampage gunning down everybody in sight at the school.

16 Santa Fe Texas Shooting

I remember hearing this and it was crazy.

I just saw that news before.

17 Jeremy Wade Delle

A kid who shoots himself in front of his class is no joke.

18 Westside Middle School Massacre

I go to that school. For those who don't know it was a shooting in Arkansas in 1998. 2 boys (Mitchell Johnson and Andrew Golden) shot I believe 10 people. It was the worst massacre until Columbine. I go to that school and there is a memorial garden at the playground where the shooting happend I believe due to a hoax fire drill and a pavilion for a teacher that got shot. The shooters are still alive one I believe got arrested again for something and the other one changed his name and I heard lives in Texas. I like dank memes and hearing about Columbine being in the comments to me is like teen spirit being the
Nirvana song. Our school colors used to be scarlet white but now has black due to the shooting. Just to let you know about the school.

Only 5 deaths. Not as bad as Columbine but still, it was two perpetrators in this one too.

No one heard of this one

19 Isla Vista Massacre
20 Discovery Middle School Shooting

Although there was only one death, the Discovery Middle School Shooting in Alabama was very traumatic. Todd Brown was fourteen years old when he was shot to death by Hammad Memon in 2010. I currently attend DMS, and I know that in some ways, the students and staff have never recovered. Todd Brown was a beautiful and amazing boy and a close friend of mine. I cannot stress enough how much he meant to me, to us, to Mrs. Brown, and the whole state of Alabama. May you find peace in the hands of the Lord, Todd, thank you for being my friend.

This was absolutely horrible...

21 Colegio Americano del Noroeste Massacre
22 Nic Diederichs Technical High School Slashing

I know this isn't a shooting but I just had to include this.

23 SuccessTech Academy Shooting
24 Bath School Massacre
25 Busto Arsizio Pizzeria and School Shooting

On July 3, 1956, 30-year-old baking assistant Giuseppe Molinari went on a two-hour rampage in Busto Arsizio, Italy. He killed 6 in the pizzeria and 20 in the school before turning the gun on himself (27 dead, including perpetrator). He used a very high power submachine gun.
