For the Season 22 premiere episode, South Park used comedy to tackle the topic of school shootings. The episode focused on how shootings have become so commonplace in society, that Americans have grown apathetic to them.
The show opened with children working in a classroom as a shooting occurs. However, neither the students nor the teacher react to the shooting, and go about business as normal. In fact, throughout the entire episode, only one character, Sharon, shows concern over the school shootings.
