Another day, another school shooting. Just hope both of the young students pull through.

I did a commentary on the unibomber with no links as you have noticed figuring folks could google it.

Indeed. That day was yesterday. And hopefully tomorrow.

But they can't all be better days so let's be grateful the SRO stopped today from being as dark as it could've been.

If it hadn't been a shooting, it would have been a stabbing or a bombing. The mere fact that the kid had access to a gun isn't why he chose to commit violence. This was going to be a dark day regardless.

The ability of the SRO to be armed and available to confront the threat is the only thing that limited that.

Oh I noticed that you said the newest bombing is attributed to the same person even though the authorities had not connected that. You also called them the unibomber... while the Unabomber is in prison.

And I am sure the deceased family will bring charges on the SRO of some type because.....you now.....he was such a good boy.......and deadly force was not necessary. Yeah, right.

No one's arguing that an SRO or any other law enforcement officer shouldn't be allowed to carry a gun. So that's not the issue.

You don't know if the kid would have bombed or stabbed his classmates if a gun wasn't available. You also don't know if the kid's intent was to conduct a mass shooting or just to shoot the two that he shot. Early indications are that at least one of the ones he shot he had a personal relationship with. What we also do know is that he chose to use a handgun because it was easier to kill with than a bomb or a knife.

No, probably we'd be jailing people for ''misgendering'' the mentally ill, thought crimes and making YouTube videos of dogs doing a nazi salute.

We need to outlaw schools. Should be pretty easy, they are not protected by the US constitution.
