    Why black clothing? It's daytime.

    That could also happen here in Georgia. Current state law mandates that children and teachers pretty much be sitting ducks until help (minutes away) can get to them.

    Well, state law does allow schools to authorize parents, grandparents, and teachers to be armed in K-12 schools, but lawmakers know very, very few schools will take advantage of that.

    I wonder if extra-special licenced citizens who've completed an eight hour training course will get to be special enough to be trusted to carry in schools and at school events off campus?

    You know, like free adult citizens who just want their children to be actually protected?

    Black gear is extra deadly.

    Why would anybody agree to any training if not for carry in every location, including schools?

    Lots of people know they need training in order to be safe with a firearm. Classes are constantly full and held 2 to 3 weekends a month. This is done mostly by first time firearm owners and some who are wanting to purchase their first firearm. Unlike many here who have been raised with a firearm in hand the majority of people have never held or even fired a firearm. That number is shrinking 30 to 45 people per month at one location.

    Particularly if it's a black tactical duster.

    Well of course. I was not implying just for schools. That was merely the immediate topic at hand.

    Unless he used an “AR”, but that doesn’t appear to be the case.

    Not so fast there. Asian's are not on the lefts to do list any longer. Being placed right up there or down there as the case may be with whites.

    Actually, The media might play this up only to help blacks feel better about constantly having to be compared to Asians when it comes to academic performance and criminal behavior among minority populations.

    Plenty of black Americans are resentful of high-performing, overachieving, notably law-abiding Asian-Americans. If the mainstream media continues to give the shooting a lot of press, including the Asian race of the perpetrator, that could help American black "community leaders"
    like Al Sharpton & Jesse Jackson get their faces on TV again to talk this up.

    How do you screw up shooting yourself in the head with a .45 bullet?

    If that was the case all of us would have picked up a gun and gone shoot someone. It's gotta be a lot more than just hormonal signals.
