 I always wonder why people never google such things if they are so interested, but instantly  start ranting and spreading half truths.
A quick search found: Wikipedia states that it is unclear whether  the 10 month year even was a thing at all. All sources stating this fact were written much later and some credit the mythical founder Romulus for this calendar form. It is known, however, that July and August were formerly called Quintilis and Sextilis before they were named after Julius Caesar and Augustus respectively. The names of September and October were also to be changed but it was never established. Before 153BC the year started at March 1st to match up with the start of spring. So the month names that are derived from numbers mach up. However, in 153 BC they moved the beginning of the administrative year to January 1st, so consules had to take office earlier (This was supposedly because some uprisings in Rome's hispanic provinces). This is way before Julius Caesar and Augustus were even born (100 BC and 63 BC respectively). 
TL;DR: If you trust Wikipedia on this, we start the year on January 1st because of some uprisings in Spain during Roman rule.

Interesting how mass shootings in 90% of all cases happen with illegally posessed guns. You know, the ones that were illegal for shooters to get before the ban AND after the ban. It's not even a huge deal to begin with since in 2011 less than 0.012 percent of deaths have ties to "assault weapons". Simple hand guns are far more deadly in that regard.
Overall gun violence in the United States has been dropping for decades now. The FBI’s Uniform Crime Report shows that in 2003, the last year before the ban expired, the U.S. murder rate was 5.7 per 100,000 people. By 2011, the murder rate fell to 4.7 per 100,000.
>high capacity magazines
This didn't do jack shit. "High capacity magazines" (ones that hold more than 10 bullets) have been banned since the 90s and they're ridiculously easy to make.

The only thing that has increased are shootings by mentally disturbed individuals. Which makes me think that the dropping mental stability of people due to lack of mental health care in the US is what's to blame here, that's what my original post was about.

So what changed for school shootings to become more frequent in the United States in the last ~15 years? Because gun laws didn't.
