    You really expect first graders to have the same impact?

    And the adults that rushed the shooter still ended up just as dead, and did nothing to stop him. If he'd had a traditional firearm, perhaps one might have died but another could have gotten to him well before he got to that classroom.

      Rushing a shooter one at a time is a very good way to get killed.

      The killer used a semi-automatic weapon, which means one shot per squeeze of the trigger.  That's exactly what happens with a revolver, and, really, any handgun you can buy today.
