Ah, those gun-free zones once again working perfectly.
Jackboots always come in matched pairs, a left boot and a right boot.
honest people got killed and gun banners have some more blood to splash around.
what sort of mileage would Diane Feinswine or Sarah Brady get if the mope had been capped by some factory worker before he killed a bunch of people?
It seems as if the disinfranchised/insane/depressed or whatever you care to label them aren't satisfied with ending themselves but feel a need to take out as many others as they can. Totally unpredictable, can happen anywhere, which makes it all the more frightening.
I always have my gun and I 'm always aware of my surroundings. With my job, I'm always on the lookout for someone. I don't trust anyone to begin with....checking out the crowd with my head swiveling like a gyroscope
2) He didn't lose the job, he was caught stealing. Ergo, he threw the job away, and he was always going to know exactly where it was. In someone else's paycheck.
3) We have to train people that the correct way to conduct a murder suicide is to start with the suicide.
Its probably way to early to pronounce any judgments on this case. A lot of stuff just doesnt add up. Reports were that he used a .223 rifle? And that he was in a meeting about pending disciplined...came out and started shooting? Where did he keep the rifle? It will be interesting to see where/how this all plays out.
I agree that in hostage or very violent situations where a gunman assures impending harm, the best method is to simply kill him. It's not like his guilt is in question.
I do find it distasteful though that this incident is being used as part of the pro-gun agenda. Just because people can carry concealed in some areas does not mean that all factors would line up in their favor in a situation like this. Someone could pull a gun on him and easily get shot dead if he reacts fast enough. I mean, who knows how it could really go down in a situation that is so volatile and unpredictable. Adding more guns does not guarantee a positive outcome per se.
Mass killings are tragedies, but they are tragedies that are very difficult to prevent through gun possession/banning. That's the logical facts.
