School Shootings, Then and Now

From my high school annual, page 72...

The rifle team fired off these air rifles inside the gymnasium for practice and competition.
There was also archery, with actual bows and arrows during physical education classes.
Nobody got killed. Nobody called the police. Nobody got in a tither.
And the guys (and gals) in woodshop also made new stocks for their hunting rifles... brought them to school for fitting and installation.
Which society was more sane? The one from thirty-five years ago where these inanimate objects were understood, studied, commonplace, and used appropriately, or the one of today where a good percentage of the population has such a fear of firearms as to desire them banned, even over the clear language of the US and most State Constitutions?
