I'm waiting for some nut to use a scoped bolt-action.

Ban sniper rifles!

That'll bring the rest of the nation's gun owners to the party.

How stupid are these liberals you just had a shooting at a school days ago and still no beef in security!
I’ll bet that was not a legally purchased weapon!
And what will the Drug report be?

I bet we won’t hear too much about the shooter unless he fits their gun-control agenda.

KGET has four teams at the scene

What, they sent out the weatherman and the sports guy? Four teams, yet they give no information whatsoever.

The paranoid in me wonders if these shootings are being orchestrated by the dims so they can sweep in and grab all guns. But the realist in me can’t see how they could be set ups for the dim master plan. Just something I felt like saying.

These “Gun Free Zones” are in reality Free killing Zones.

Let Law Enforcement and the Government prove otherwise.

It seems like there was some news of ‘threats’ at/regarding that school recently (as in the last few days).

Faux is now posting it.

The people were hiding in closets. Way to go, idiots, just tell the next shooter where the kids are, so you can waste no time by hosing down the closet doors.

And they herded the kids onto an open football field!? Can we say “kill zone”?

would not be the first time.

I suspect theft is needed by organized crime and citizens who are stopping theft, carjackings, and other related crimes are impeding the buisiness of organized crime. Think Chicago where the criminals demanded unarmed citizens AND GOT IT.

Pruitt says it’s believed a shotgun was used in the attack.

Whew. Good that it wasn't a pistol or assault rifle. Wonder if it's one of the hundreds of shotguns the IRS ordered last year.

Pruitt says it’s believed a shotgun was used in the attack.

So, based on the pathetic reporting that occurs in this type of incident, we can pretty safely assume a shotgun was NOT used in the attack.

There those progressives go again....calling it a "shooting", taking an innocent, good term, and changing it into a bad thing.
Shooting is the act or process of firing rifles, shotguns or other projectile weapons such as bows or crossbows. Even the firing of artillery, rockets and missiles can be called shooting. A person who specializes in shooting is a marksman. Shooting can take place in a shooting range or in the field in hunting, in shooting sports or in combat.
A massacre is an incident where some group is killed by another, and the perpetrating party are perceived to be in total control of force while the victimized party is perceived to be helpless and/or innocent with regard to any legitimate offense. There is no clear-cut definition for when killings are referred to as massacres or not, rather, this choice is a result of an individual or collective assessment, depending e.g. on how the circumstances of the killing align with given ideas of acceptable use of force and on the desired status of an event in collective memory.


We need to stop letting them get away with calling these acts by insane madmen "shootings" and make them call them what they are "MASSACRES"!!! They keep changing the definition of innocent words, into something they are not, thereby changing peoples perception of them into something bad, when they aren't. Everyone who owns a gun, is a shooter and goes out shooting. Only insane mad men go out and commit massacres.

msnbc’s new meme is that anyone opposing gun control confiscation will be removed from office in 2014 because THEY say so. (see fraud, see weak minded politicians, see low info voting politicians)

You're correct again. So lead the way and show us all how this can be accomplished.

No, they made our children sitting ducks for crazies, when they made the schools gun free zones. All they have to do is sit back and wait for the crazies to take advantage of the gun free zones.

The vast majority of such shootings happen at public schools.

Therefore we should ban them.

No problem here, I live near Taft High School in LA and the police have everything well in hand. They have decided that it is hazardous to pick your 4th grader up in front of the school and is much better to have them cross the street or walk ½ block up the street to get into the car.

Those cones in front of the school look so impressive.

We have the best police force that Mexico can supply.

You mean to say that this rampage was causes by a video?

Obama has his hands full. After "getting Osama", he pledged (remember this, always) to "get" the guys responsible for the attack on our Libyan ambassador.

Any updates on that manhunt?

School shootings are going to have to be handled at the local level.BO is busy on the Link-on parkway.
