    There was no suicide in the LoneStar shooting, so this concludes this tangent.

    We have heard a ton about the problem with gun free zones from the right. And its always the same message: bad guys pick schools because they no its a gun free zone and its like shooting fish in a barrel and they can't shoot back. If there were only good guys there packing heat then they would be shot down in seconds and many lives would have been saved.

    So what the hell does that have to do with what happened in Texas yesterday? Tell me. Who was the bad guy who came hunting and who could have been saved by more people whipping out the bad news and opening fire?

    The Texas shootings had nothing in common with Newtown and the mention of a gun free zone was absurd and totally out of place. These were two guys who had a beef with each other and decided to use guns to solve it. In the crossfire, an innocent person was hit and a second had a heart attack.

    The gun free zone had nothing to do with this and the only mention of it was a knee jerk automatic response by the right because that is their latest cause celebre in the desire to get even more guns in America and get them on the streets as part of a political and ideological agenda.

    From the Houston Local news that is exactly what happened.
    One Shooter, One Gun. Bad guy,(Student status unknown) approaches student, argues with him,
    pull out a gun and shoots him 3 times out of 5 to 7 shots.
    1 stray hits a maintenance man.
    Bad guy goes to put his gun back in his waste band, and shoots himself in leg.
    The arrest him at the hospital, where he went for a gunshot wound.

    You can't write better comedy than this. But seriously this was attempted murder and he should be given life in prison.

    When the adrenaline hits the bloodstream a guy who was probably in close range can barely hit his target. Sometimes I think having a pistol gives one a false sense of superiority over foes.

    What is a shame is after he unloaded his bullets that someone couldn't have charged him and took him out. But I wasn't there so that is just Monday morning quarterbacking.

    Exactly. There's no reason to run around shooting recklessly like gangsters and cops. Learn to properly use your firearm.

    Yep, it was a "gangsta" with a long history of criminal behavior...

    Imagine that.

    Your post was fine. Valid points and grounded in reality. Right up until this point....

    ...and then you lost control and revealed yourself.

    "Get even more guns on the streets as part of a political agenda"??? I guess blind partisans like yourself just can't avoid that "WTF???" moment that renders any prior logical dialog moot, can they...

    Typical.

    I would live to see a source on this. I'm not saying you're wrong, but I can't repeat it until I know it's true.
