NPR's Mike Pesca re-examines a notorious school shooting 26 years ago, and how the incident still resonates in current gun policy. In 1979, Brenda Spencer opened fire with a rifle at the Grover Cleveland Elementary School in San Diego, Calif., killing two adults and injuring nine children. She later explained her actions with the statement, "I don't like Mondays."
