“Summer means about three months of no school shootings”

Summer is known as a time when there is no school...shootings? “What does it say about our society that what kids like most about summer is 3 months without school shootings? #awellregulatedmilitia” was posted on Twitter on June 10, 2014. “Now that it’s summer, we can all look forward to 3 months of no school shootings” was posted on Twitter on June 11, 2014.

The joke went viral in May 2018, after the Santa Fe High School Shooting. “The best thing about summer break coming up is the US will have 2 months without school shootings” was posted on Reddit—Too Soon on May 19, 2018. “I’m so happy summer is here because that means potentially three months without school shootings” was posted on Twitter on May 21, 2018.

“Why are Americans so dumb?"/"Because they shoot the ones who go to school” is a riddle about school shootings.

It is depressing that I look forward to summer not for the weather but for the hopes that there are 3 months without school shootings.

I used to look forward to summer to go to the beach. Now I look forward to summer for school to be out so we at least have 2 months without school shootings. #SantaFe #FlaPol #EnoughIsEnough #Sayfie #saveourchildren

Welp, at least we can look forward to (insert GOP/FoxNews shitheel here) bragging in late August about almost 2 months of no school shootings.
