    Another School Shooting

    This one in California.
    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/0...n_2449261.html

    Excerpt:

    A shooting has been reported at Taft Union High School in Taft, California, KERO reports.

    The shooting suspect is in custody, according to ABC 7.

    The suspect is believed to be a student, Kern County sheriff's spokesman Ray Pruitt told the Associated Press, and police believe the weapon used was a shotgun.

    Two people have been reported shot, according to the station. The first victim suffered minor injuries and refused treatment, according to KGET. The second, a student, was airlifted to Kern Medical Center. Ryan Dunbier, senior deputy with the Kern County Sheriff's Department, told the New York Daily News that the airlifted victim had been shot in the chest and was critically wounded.

    This will not be classified as a "mass" shooting as there are not 4 shooting victims/deaths.

    I know. I'm sure all the gun grabbers are distraught over how this turned out. Now they won't be able to capitalize on it.

    I found the story very lacking. (not your post Decklin, HuffPo's).

    Is this gang related? Another government medicated child? Revenge?

    I'm betting it was over a girl....
    I aim with my eye... I shoot with my mind... I kill with my heart....

    It has been brought to my attention that the stick figure decals on
    the back windows of vehicles are NOT pedestrian 'kill' scores, but are
    actually meant to represent family members. I'll be removing mine
    ASAP to avoid any further confusion.........

    First comes smiles, then lies. Last is gunfire.

    I have been led to believe that this was revenge over a bullying incident.
    "Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the people's liberty teeth (and) keystone... the rifle and the pistol are equally indispensable... more than 99% of them by their silence indicate that they are in safe and sane hands. The very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference .When firearms go, all goes, we need them every hour." -- George Washington

    Why do you say that? And if that is the case what are the odds that drugs (prescription) are involved?
