    It doesn't matter even if it would be. Guns are not the cause of these mass shootings and you do not violate a civil liberty because someone is abusing it to harm others.

    No, the GOP want to provide more funding for school security, but they also want those teachers who wish to be armed to be able to be so. They do not want any requirements that lunch ladies be armed.

    Look at all this blather from the left. They know good and well that this one act supersedes all the bought and paid for "childrens" marches, and all the gun grabber arguments. All their anti gun BS they spent so much time and money on has been rendered moot.

    Any link or what should this be from you?

    That opinion runs contrary to the facts. Western countries with fewer guns in circulation have far fewer homicides than the USA, be they mass shootings or individual killings. The more guns there are in a modern society, the more killings there are. There is unquestionably a correlation between guns and homicide, even if some people choose to ignore facts when they form their opinions.

    One trained police officer with a gun stopped a shooter. That does not mean that hordes of untrained people should be running around with firearms. If the shooter had not had access to a gun, there would have been no school shooting.

    9/11 will never happen again. Next time a terrorist, even with guns, tries to pull it off, the rest of the people on the plane will beat them to death because of numbers - they know the score.

    Actually a witness has reported that the 17 year old shooter held his gun at his own head then fired so it looks like the shooter killed himself. And it looks more and more likely that the officer shot the 14 year old boy in his thigh

    Oh well ... this incident.
    Yep ... and now the Pro Gunners celebrate the prosecutor's school for his act.
    I do not know, but somehow, at least I never said anything against it, that if the threat is high, there should be calmly armed and trained guards in a school ... unlike armed teachers, what is total nonsense!

    Not just the left. This moderate Republican is also opposed to arming large numbers of teachers in the classroom. The whole idea is promoted to open up a whole new market for the gun manufacturers.

    The budgets for schools are allocated locally and these school shootings happen in school districts under Democrat control.
    Stoneman Douglas had a RO. And you never checked a republican budget so quit lying.

    You mean after the officer confronted him he decided to kill himself? So? The officer stopped him, period. How is of no consequence.
    Cite the witness report.

    So, no before the officer confronted him, and the officer decided to shoot at the shooter who already had his own gun pointed at his own head. Two shots fired. Still no confirmation who shot the 14 year old boy but we do know that the officer's bullet is unaccounted for and that 14 year old boy is now out of hospital after being shot in the thigh. No statement on who shot the boy or who shot the shooter - is it that difficult to find which gun fired the two bullets given both guns are available for testing

    We also know that after the girl was shot no other bullets fired from the shooter's gun at any other students and the officer did not arrive until about a minute after the girl was shot. No mass shooting was prevented by the officer and most likely the only person the officer shot was the 14 year old boy who perhaps was hiding in one of the class rooms. Still no statement from the officer has been released

    You're kidding right? From the site you posted to back your bogus story -

    Tichenor said he pulled the door closed as the school resource officer rounded the corner and commanded Rollins to drop the gun.

    “Put the gun down,” the officer said, according to Tichenor. “We know you don’t want to hurt anyone else.”

    Someone said the shooter had killed himself. Someone else said several students had been killed. Neither assertion has been confirmed in official police statements.

    http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/ma...s-md-great-mills-shooting-20180320-story.html

    If he shot himself - if - it was after the officer confronted him. What are you so unhappy about? Is it because a man with a gun stopped a potential massacre?

    And three days later, no statements have been released on who shot who, not even who shot the 14 year old boy in the thigh who was released from hospital. No potential massacre was stopped by the officer.

    But someone said so it must be true. Someone said the officer shot the kid. Someone said he prevented more kids from getting shot. Someone says it doesn't matter who shot who. Someone says lives were saved because of this officer.
    We do know the shooter was confronted by the officer because a student named Tichenor witnessed it. Your witnesses may or may not exist allowing you to claim any fantasy you may have, unless there's someone in school named Someone.

    Don't need to base it on someone. Facts are: No bullets were fired at any students after the girl got shot and it was at least 60 seconds before the officer turned up during which time the shooter had placed the gun against his own head and an eye witness stated that he was face to face with the shooter who ignored him. No massacre was prevented by the officer.

    Tichenor said he pulled the door closed as the school resource officer rounded the corner and commanded Rollins to drop the gun.

    No, it really doesn't. The majority of the gun homicides in the United States are due to inner-city black and Hispanic gang violence. Ordinary gun-owning middle-America is very peaceful. Regarding mass shootings, the spate of mass shootings is very recent, having started around 2012. Yet the guns and gun technology used have been widely available for decades prior to these mass shootings, which means that the mass shootings are being caused by something else.

    And the girl is being taken off of life support. So NO, the good guy with a gun DID NOT "STOP" the bad guy with a gun.
