With 33 people dead, the shooting rampage at Virginia Tech yesterday became the worst such incident in recent U.S. history.

The death toll exceeds the 24 killed at a Luby´s Cafeteria in Killeen, Texas, on Oct. 16, 1991, and the shooting deaths of 22 at a McDonald´s restaurant in San Ysidro, Calif., on July 18, 1984 and the Columbine School Shooting in Littleton, Colo., injuring as many as 20 students and killing 15, including the two gunmen on April 20, 1999.
But the Virginia Tech killings also join a long list of multiple slayings on school campuses.
