...The article is not anti-gun rhetoric hell bent on increasing restrictive gun laws. That's why I post it
"It's frustrating to see one shooting after another that could be prevented," said Dewey Cornell, a forensic clinical psychologist at the University of Virginia, who is a consultant on school violence prevention. "Schools have emergency response plans rather than prevention plans.
"Prevention cannot wait until there is a gunman in the parking lot," he said. "There have been more than enough wake-up calls."
I'm sure the MGGLGB crowd would disagree with the parking lot notion. They would actually relish such a time--if they could somehow get teachers/admins armed. Sometimes, the MGGLGB guys actually dream of being at a shooting attack....vicarious thrills of some sort.
Speaking of prevention, I wonder where the 14-year old kid got the guns?
Did he buy them? Or did some fool gun-owner leave them exposed for him? I haven't seen the story on the source of the guns yet. Anybody know?
14-year olds shouldn't have handguns. 14-year olds, as a group, are potentially pretty stupid with handguns.
Unless there are some really extenuating circumstances, I think the source of the guns that Coon used to shoot up his school and kill people should be tried and convicted of something, maybe accessory to attempted murder. Unless there are some really extenuating circumstances the gun source should spend 10 or 20 years in jail.
No one could possibly defend the despicable gun source. Could they?
