RIP. I long for the days when a gunmen shooting from a tower prompted citizens to grab their constitutionally protected rifles and head to campus to return fire.

Whitman did not commit the “largest mass murder in US history”. Reporters are idiots incapable of doing even the most basic research.

Some one refresh my memory, did not the gunman leave a note requesting that his brain be analyzed after his death to see what made him want to do this awful thing. I was pretty young at the time, but have often thought about this early school shooter.

Then came the copy-cats.

Nearby thread. Mother Jones magazine says that armed civilians have never stopped a mass shooting. I recognize that McCoy was an officer, not a civilian, but it still bears mentioning. A killer was stopped because a good guy had a gun.

RIP Officer McCoy.

I wish they'd post more pics today like this one of killers. Maybe people wouldn't think it was so 'glamorous'.

None of the weapons used were assault rifles.

I remember reading at the time that Martinez emptied his handgun into Whitman. For some reason that particular detail really got to me.
