    It won't be long before we start hearing that if only all the teacher's had been packing heat, today would never have happened.

    As if some crazed fuck with an armload of guns that's willing to kill a schoolroom full of children is going to be dissuaded by the possibility that a teacher might be armed.  Or that even if a teacher was armed, that he/she would be able to use it effectively, or assuming that just having schools full of guns wouldn't be just a recipe for disaster in the making in and of itself...

    •  GUNMAN WORE A VEST! So now teachers and kids (9+ / 0-)

      need vests, just to be safe.

      Happy little moron, Lucky little man.

      It's actually funny how the NRA types come out with this "magic bystander" argument after so many mass shootings. They expect us to believe that if the gun laws had been more liberal, there would have been somebody there who could have taken the shooter down.

      I won't say that NEVER happens. I can recall two times when it did--when Colin Ferguson shot a lot of people on the Long Island Railroad a couple of decades ago, and when David Adkisson shot some people at the Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church in 08--except that those 2 times, the people who took them down were unarmed!

      The furor over Friday's [10.5] job report revealed a political movement that is rooting for American failure, so obsessed with taking down Obama that good news drives its members into a blind rage. -Paul Krugman
