It's an ironic statistic, but thanks to the coronavirus, America just had the first March since 2002 without a school shooting.
Last month schools across the country began shuttering amid the pandemic. With kids from kindergarten through college now at home,Robert Klemko of the Washington Post noted on Twitter that this was the first March since 2002 without a school shooting.
That means that current high school seniors were just infants, or not even born, the last time US schools didn't see a shooting in the third month of the year. Ironically enough, while school shootings are down, gun dealers around the country are seeing record sales.

March 2020 was the first March without a school shooting in the U.S. since 2002 https://www.cbsnews.com/news/coronavirus-first-march-without-school-shooting-since-2002-united-states/ … According to the sources cited in this report there were no school shootings in March of 2006 thru 2010.
Schools across the U.S. have been shut down since early March as a prevention measure to slow the spread of coronavirus.
