Remembering Columbine: The legacy of a high school massacre | DW News

It has been twenty years since the shocking mass shooting at Columbine High School in the US town of Littleton, Colorado. On that day two students armed with high-powered guns and homemade explosives killed 12 of their peers and one teacher. The name of the school in Littleton, Colorado, became known worldwide and has since been joined by other locations with tragic histories, such as Sandy Hook and Parkland. But Columbine is still remembered as the start of America’s modern era of school gun violence, and survivors, now grown up and with children of their own, are still battling the trauma and hoping President Trump and Congress will finally impose stricter gun laws and a reinstatement of the assault-weapons ban.
