    No details about how:

    "Jamie Brock, 30-year veteran volunteer firefighter who responded to the school after the shooting, took down the suspect on the playground, Smith said."

    But we all know that it's not necessary to lock up guns around kids.
    Teenagers are responsible enough to have their own firearms and ammo, kept in their bedrooms or otherwise unsecured, right?
    Everybody says "other people's sons may be trouble, but I know my boy would never do something bad with a gun."
    And we can all keep saying it.
    Because, once again, it was somebody else's son that went nuts with a gun.

    Every now and then, a teenager uses a gun in self-defense to fight off a home invader.

    But even more often, a teenager uses a gun for suicide or unlawful homicide, robbery, or aggravated assault.

    Looks like (reading between the lines, here) the kid was out of ammo. http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/world-news/townville-shooting-first-picture-hero-8937690

    All of the descriptions are very vague, and the seven minute interval for a response time indicates the ammunition was probably all spent. It sounds like he spent most of it shooting in the air.

    We'll perhaps see as more details come out, but since the media has already portrayed this volunteer fireman as charging headfirst against an armed opponent, like charging a German machine gun bunker, they are very unlikely to now provide us with details that would undermine that narrative.

    Its called parenting. Every child is different and YOU have to know your child. At 14 mine did not have access to firearms. Not because I thought she couldn't handle it, but because she didn't need it. She wouldn't stay home alone at that age. So the subject never came up. Once she started staying home alone it became an issue. At 17 I trust her more than some adults I know.

    your split time is how long it takes between shots.

    Apparently the little boy that died had family connections to my mother's side. Some kind of a distant cousin.

    Unless it's in my control my guns stay unloaded locked up and away from the ammunition.

    It looks like the kid's home life wasn't very nurturing.
