    Boy, 12, opens fire at New Mexico school, wounds two students......[W:36]

    Reuters 38 mins ago




    A 12-year-old boy armed with a shotgun opened fire at a middle school in New Mexico on Tuesday, seriously wounding two students before a staff member persuaded him to put down the firearm, authorities said.

    The shooting at Berrendo Middle School in Roswell took place in a gym where students had gathered to stay warm from the frigid weather outside before the start of class, Governor Susana Martinez told reporters.

    "The shooter was quickly stopped by one staff member who walked right up to him and asked him to set down the firearm, which he did," Martinez said. CNN quoted Martinez as hailing the intervening teacher as a "hero" for his action.

    The wounded children were an 11-year-old boy, who students said had been shot in the face, and a 13-year-old girl, whose condition was serious but improved after surgery. The boy underwent two rounds of surgery and was in critical condition.

    The adolescent shooter, who was not identified, remained in police custody on Tuesday night, New Mexico State Police Chief Pete Kassetas said. He had come to school that morning with a 20-gauge sawed-off shotgun concealed in a bag, Kassetas added.

    The boy's motive remains unclear, police said, but student Monique Salcido, a friend of the two children who were shot, told CNN he had been bullied at the school.....snip-~

    This is quite unfortunate. But now that the media Immortalizes these moments every kid out there now knows that when they want to go off. Do so at school. Shame.....now Team Obama and the Anti Gun Nuts will make use of this tragedy. What is your take upon the matter?

    Very sad and disturbing.

    However, I wholeheartedly disagree that how media covers shootings has an impact. If watching TV, or ready availibility of guns for that matter, causes you to disregard your moral compass and start blowing people away there's something else fundamentally wrong with you.

    Mornin' Ben. Well if that was the case. Then they would go off anywhere. Now its panning out to be more of a point to do something at school. Then they get the attemtion.

    Hiya.

    School is where their peers are. Workplace shootings are relatively common too. Whatever their anger is, that's what they perceive as the source of it.

    Aren't you using this tragedy in an effort to rile up the "anti gun nuts" (yet again) and to point fingers at Obama for something he has absolutely no control over?

    No.....as I don't have a Political Agenda nor any groups that are out to interfere with any others Rights. Nor can I invoke EO's over any shooting I see fit. Also due to being on a Political Site that competes with others, do you think it is appropriate for them to have the same Breaking News that most others have?

    Although, its quite amazing how fast you deflected over the media already sporting the incident nationwide, like 38-48 minutes ahead of me. Did you want to explain that hypothesis out to them about your thought on how Obama has no control over these matters.

    Then they will explain it like this......he has no control when they spring up. It's after that fact.....and then when he uses the names repeatedly in all his lil speeches around the country. Trying to amp up legislation for the interference of others Rights.

    Now are you able to figure out that part on him speaking out on every School shooting and mass shootings on his watch. Invoking each and every ones name? You are aware of his friend Rahm Emanuel and his quote on not allowing tragic moments to get by without, using them.....correct? One can see why.....my thought would be what it is.

    More on this. It appears that he the shooter a kid of age 12 went after the one who was bullying him. According to this piece he shot the other boy in the face twice with a shotgun.

    Student, 12, Used Shotgun to Shoot 2 Students in Roswell, New Mexico, Cops Say

    Odiee Carranza, an eighth grade student, told the Associated Press a boy bumped into her as he rushed toward the gym and apologized to her. When the boy entered the gym, Carranza said she saw him pull a gun out of a band instrument case and begin shooting.

    She said he shot another boy twice in the face and shoot a girl in the arm.

    "Then he shot up in the sky, then dropped the gun, and then some teacher grabbed the kid that had the gun," Carranza told the AP.

    The Roswell incident is the latest school shooting to rattle the country. It comes one month after a gunman open fire at Arapahoe High School in Colorado.....snip~

    Another shotgun shooting? Maybe Joe Biden feels bad about telling everyone to buy a shotgun now.
