TMc: FBI School Shooter Report Summary 1999 | Eastern North Carolina Now

"Columbine, Mar 3, 2010" by Dave Cullen... Page 404

    Dave's book is the manual for "How To" and "How to Avoid" School Shootings. After scanning the book, page 404 mentioned the FBI manual and also one by the Secret Service. I am a Cliff Note kind of reader and maybe this will help us both.
