The fact that the police were stopping parents from trying to help students while the police stood around is mindboggling.
So the right thinks a teacher with a handgun, not a long rifle as depicted here, can stop a prepared, armed, armored shooter even the police are afraid of?
Arm teachers. Especially before contract negotiations.
I heard the last time there was a school shoooting one of the black teacher said she would be afraid to have a gun because she was afraid she would be shot by the cop. So how are the cops going to know who is good and who is bad
That’s what the republican idiots want.
The death toll from mass shootings went from an average of 4.8 per year during the ban years to an average of 23.8 per year in the decade afterwards.

TULSA, Oklahoma (AP) — Multiple people were shot at a Tulsa medical building on a hospital campus Wednesday and “some unfortunately were killed.” a police captain said.
Tulsa police Capt. Richard Meulenberg said the suspect “is down.”
St. Francis Health System locked down its campus Wednesday afternoon because of the situation at the Natalie Medical Building. The Natalie building houses an outpatient surgery center and a breast health center.
Aerial footage from a TV helicopter appeared to show first responders wheeling someone on a stretcher away from the hospital building.
I wonder, if the next gunman were to attack some very tony private school, you know, where the rich people* send their kids, would that result in Immediate and Massive Gun Control?
*Like Senator Ted Cruz, whose two daughters attend St Johns School ($30,000 per year tuition) in Houston.
’Wonder how many doors it has? Or does it have a moat?
Canada took less than a week to ban assault rifles.
“Moving to Canada” just took on a whole new meaning.
ok, logistically speaking, this is how it’s gonna work…. Teacher teaching class, has revolver in Safety box (another law regarding owning a gun now), in desk drawer. Active shooter enters class, and AIMS!!! It takes time to get it out of safety box and load it and aim.. Bang, kids and teacher are dead. Now shooter has additional gun and ammo. Congratulations!
Second situation, unless the teacher removes the safety box and takes box with them, it’s a temptation. Angry student that didn’t get the grade he/she wanted, or felt bullied by anyone else has easy access to a weapon… and not all teachers are perfect at remembering to take the box with them… Yea, why bother with a entry from outside when INSIDE is so much faster and cheaper!! who needs to buy a gun when you can retrieve it from teacher’s locker/car/desk drawer/any other location.
What if the Teacher is a open Carry? “Let’s mug the teacher that we really hate because he/she is not cool to let us fly thru this grade and shoot them with their own gun!!, Yea!!”NO!
Tell me what teacher has the lack of compassion to shoot one of their own students! HUM??And tell me you don’t fear that one day, a Teacher wigs out and loses control!??!!
How many Deer wear Kevlar vests?? Military weapons belong to the military, not the homeowner or gang member or even the police!! I recently just saw an ad for a “Safe Gun” that shoots paint or rubber bullets using an air cartridge. it’s completely made of plastic and undetectable by Xray… REALLY? and you can’t change the rubber ball to a steel ball bearing Mother of God! for those that argue that the second amendment gives them the right to carry guns, where does it say, “Weapons of mass destruction”, or “a Gun that shoot 40 rounds in a second”? NO WHERE!!!
and now there isn’t a day that goes by that we don’t hear of a shooting and multiple deaths…something’s gotta give.
The gop right want everything their way – right or wrong. Too bad they don’t walk the Jesus walk they talk. Jesus says not to Judge but share. I won’t be bothered with the gop righters in Heaven. No sharing with wrong there. No wrong righters allowed over the gate. Communion is a free choice for people to remember the LORD Jesus Christ. Not to be denied by people wearing frocks unto others.
Easy answer here… Just close all the schools and send kids directly to the military at age 5.
yeah 19 cops are waiting in the hall for Miss Jones to kill the mass murder
If everyone is armed, why would we even need the police?
Wile E>Coyote syndrome—-they think the more explosives they use;the better it’ll work out.
@kaffekup: “So the right thinks a teacher with a handgun … can stop a prepared, armed, armored shooter…?”
And just where would the teacher’s gun be kept?
1) If under lock and key, it won’t be readily to hand if/when needed.
2) On — or even in — the teacher’s desk, where it can be easily grabbed by anyone who comes near?
3) Even if the teacher carries it in a holster on their body, how many of them could successfully prevent someone who attacks them without warning from wrestling it away from them
In other words: Having an “armed” teacher in the classroom is more likely to provide a weapon for a would-be attacker than actual defense against an attacker.
Arm teachers? At my school, the teachers were driven to insanity. If they were armed, they would certainly have shot the students.
gop creates a mess and expects the poor to clean up behind their behinds. Read the last verse Bible Book Judges 21:25 – every man did that which was right in his own eyes. (Not what God wanted but what they wanted to do)
repuliguns don’t believe in abortion but they believe in arming every white gop voter with plenty of guns. sane or nay.
June 6. 78th anniversary of D-Day. Thank you all for your service. Now and forever. Salute. God bless. My dad was there. He said it was beyond belief. Now Putin has us on the brink of Nuclear war. How did the world ever allow that? Ostriches in Past Power?
Has anyone noticed that the school was mostly Hispanic? I wonder if racism had anything to do with the lack of response?
