PSS Statement on Marysville Washington School Shooting October 24, 2014

In the wake of the shooting today at Marysville Pilchuck High School school shooting, in Marysville, Washington, we want to remind everybody that the shooter is as much a victim as are his own victims. Nobody is born a school shooter, and while each school shooting is separate and distinct, we believe that school shooters have in common many factors which contribute and lead to their taking this ultimate step.

We are working diligently to prevent school shootings. And we have confidence in our methods.

In the meantime, our hearts go out to everyone affected by today’s Marysville shooting.
