Just when Americans thought there couldn’t be any tragedies in 2012 worse than Superstorm Sandy and the Colorado Theater shootings, a bucolic town in Connecticut by the name of Newtown is struck by a “deeply disturbed”  lone gunman named Adam Lanza. Lanza single-handedly committed the second-deadliest school shooting in U.S. history. This 20-year-old is the latest recluse to go on a rampage and take innocent victims with him to final rest.

Shocking and saddening, Newtown will forever bear this indelible mark of random gun violence. Here, we’ve listed the deadliest school massacres in American history. –yvette caslin
