Backstory: When reading the story of Brenda Spencer the thing that jumped out was her claim that she had asked her father for a radio for Christmas. Instead he gave her a Ruger 10/22 rifle with a scope and 500 rounds of ammunition. A month later she used the rifle to wound eight children and kill two adults at the school across the street from where she lived. A police officer arrived on scene after the shooting – Spencer wounded the officer, her final victim. — TAG
