    I wonder if that principal is contemplating how his school is a "gun free zone" as he recovers.

    Guess those gun-free zones/safe school zones, once again, aren't as effective as some folks think. If the Principal or AP had been licensed, trained, and armed, there might have been only one person wounded, the 17 year old shooter. How much more of this must happen before lawmakers make the right decision to allow licensed, properly trained adults to conceal-carry firearms in soft locations like school/church?

    There are still too many people running around saying: "If we just got rid of all the guns, there wouldn't be any crime". Trust me,......I know a few.

    I noticed none of the articles went into any detail on where he got the gun. All the articles did mention that his father was a police detective, so the shooter might have had access even if the population was turned into future victims or not. This of course is the problem with the "get rid of the guns" cry as it just gives the bad guys more potential victims. Had the staff been armed, the outcome certainly could have been different for the victims and the shooter may have had second thoughts before going there in the first place. The staff could of at least had a chance to protect themselves and the students. All they could do was herd dozens of students into the kitchen for one stop shopping if that was his plan, which fortunately it wasn't.

    Does anyone know how many firearms are stolen from police cars each year?

    (I don't have the number -- I was wondering if anyone does)
    (The question is not intended to besmirch law enforcement)

    Not meaning to hijack the thread, but I doubt that would be easy to find. A quick search on Google for "number of weapons stolen from police" returns 4,950,000 hits. YMMV

    the email I got concerning this event from one of my subscription sources indicates the firearm used was owned by his father...a law enforcement officer.

    What it may likely boil down to is that this kid was just 'effin crackers and he went out like a *****.

    I'm left wondering if his parents noticed anything unusual about their son, or if they even paid much attention to him. Were there no warning signs?

    I suspected that just because the articles avoided the question. It's a very sad situation.

    I think he had just switched schools which may indicate a problem.

    I switched schools a lot growing up, because of moving, or being "re-districted" or by my choosing. Granted some were tough, I wasn't ever distraught over it.

    Back in (I think 1998) I was called into the principals office because I MENTIONED a .44 magnum to a friend and some sissy schoolgirl overheard me and got nervous. We were talking about a dirty harry movie, I remember to this day. The two principals made her give me an apology!! Idiot.

    Rep James Moran (D) on the house floor moments ago:

    In regards to this shooting, to paraphrase

    There are way to many guns available to children, and we need to do something about all the guns.

    Fixed it to how it should be. You shouldn't be required to have a license or training to exercise your rkba and protect yourself.

    Vice-Principal has died.

    Young man possibly had run-ins with police in other town, maybe synthetic marijuana involved. The weapon was the service weapon of his father a Glock .40.
