*Editor’s Note* – This interactive map is nothing more than dishonest sensationalism and disinformation. The intent, of course, is to perpetuate and instill fear in people about guns. However, as can be seen in the explanation below, two “school shootings” that occurred in Maine happened to be people choosing school property to commit suicide.

So, to be clear, the majority of the incidents illustrated on the map are not “mass shootings,” and two of the incidents depicted took place in Maine: A December 2014 case in which a 41-year-old man shot himself in the parking lot of Benton Elementary School in Waterville, and a September 2013 case in which a 19-year-old shot himself on the grounds of Gray-New Gloucester High School during homecoming sporting events.
