Since the Columbine High School massacre set off a nationwide moral panic in 1999, there have been 10 school shootings in which five or more people were killed.

The big picture: Including the death or suicide of the perpetrators, the mass shootings have resulted in 128 fatalities.

These are the 10 deadliest school shootings since Columbine (15 deaths):

  1. 2007 Virginia Tech University, Blacksburg, Va. — 33 deaths
  2. 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School, Newtown, Conn. — 27 deaths
  3. 2018 Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, Parkland, Fla. — 17 deaths
  4. 2015 Umpqua Community College, Roseburg, Ore. — 10 deaths
  5. 2018 Santa Fe High School, Santa Fe, Tex. — 10 deaths
  6. 2005 Red Lake Senior High School, Red Lake, Minn. — 7 deaths
  7. 2012 Oikos University, Oakland, Calif. — 7 deaths
  8. 2006 West Nickel Mines School, Bart Township, Penn. — 6 deaths
  9. 2008 Northern Illinois University, Dekalb, Ill. — 6 deaths
  10. 2014 Marysville Pilchuck High School, Marysville, Wa. — 5 deaths

This story has been updated to reflect the shooting at Santa Fe High School. Numbers compiled by Axios.

President Trump plans to issue at least 100 pardons and commutations on his final full day in office Tuesday, sources familiar with the matter told Axios.

Why it matters: This is a continuation of the president's controversial December spree that saw full pardons granted to more than two dozen people — including former Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort, longtime associate Roger Stone and Charles Kushner, the father of Trump's senior adviser and son-in-law, Jared Kushner.

  • The pardons set to be issued before Trump exits the White House will be a mix of criminal justice ones and pardons for people connected to the president, the sources said.
  • CNN first reported this news.

Capitalizing on the Georgia runoffs, achieving a 50-50 Senate and launching an impeachment trial are weighty to-dos for getting Joe Biden's administration up and running on Day One.

What to watch: A blend of ceremonies, hearings and legal timelines will come into play on Tuesday and Wednesday so Chuck Schumer can actually claim the Senate majority and propel the new president's agenda.

This is how bad things are for elected officials and others working in a post-insurrection Congress:

  • Rep. Norma Torres (D-Calif.) said she had a panic attack while grocery shopping back home.
  • Rep. Jim McGovern (D-Mass.) said police may also have to be at his constituent meetings.
  • Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) told a podcaster he brought a gun to his office on Capitol Hill on Jan. 6 because he anticipated trouble with the proceedings that day.
