Some nut job walked into an Amish school and killed three people before killing himself.

Who does that?

I saw some video on T.V. and while I did see some Amish folk, I mostly saw Mennonites. Unless it’s =me= who’s uninformed.

    I believe (after doing some research on Wikipedia and other sources) that while the Mennonites and Amish people share a lot of the same beliefs it is the Amish who are mostly in the more conservative dress. It seems that some Mennonites practice this but ALL Amish are in conservative dress. Therefore, the community with the school shooting is Amish – more specifically Old Order Amish.

    It is a hard subject to research but here are the links that helped me find some information.
