    IMO, the teacher did a great job. I consider it a moral obligation on my part to take part in stopping evil in its tracks. Anyone care to offer their view on the matter?

    I don't mind watching the OC-Community (tea party 2.0's, who have hijacked the OC-Community) cannibalize itself. I do mind watching OC dragged through the gutter. OC is an exercise of A Right. I choose to not OC; I choose to not own firearms. I choose to leave the OC-Community to it's own self-inflicted injuries, and eventual implosion. Carry on...

    See, this is why 'Gun Free Zones' are a good thing. You don't need a gun to stop an active shooter...

    I kinda' expect to hear this reasoning from the "Left".

    I am seriously not trying to knit-pick or anything, but how about we refer to people who are against firearms by what they should be refered to as..."anti-gunners, anti-2nd amendmenters" or whatever.

    Seriously, there are many liberals or those who might sway to the left who are pro-firearm, pro 2nd amendment etc. I am sure there are people on the "right" who are anti-firearm.

    I agree. I have very liberal friends who fully support my right to keep and bear arms. Also, look at the number of Democrats in the Senate who voted in favor of the National Parks amendment to the credit card bill. Liberal does not always equate to anti-gun.

    I believe ANTI-RIGHTS peopleis the proper term to be using, in reference to those who want to strip us of our firearms rights. It's not about guns - it's about control.

    Unbelievable. In Littleton? That's just a pimp-walk away from Columbine or Englewood!

    This wasn't even from a student but alumni? What the Christ! :shock:

    Make a circular 10km danger field around the Columbine school for a base and station armed guards in every school in that zone. That's the only thing that will take care of this. Early this week I had a feeling this place was overdue for a hit. I was thinking damn, for an area that is so anti-gun it sure hasn't had much trouble lately...I wonder if Denver is going to be alright on it's-BLAM! News busts in like an exhausted deliveryman with the wind knocked out of him.

    The gunman was using a bolt action rifle in this shooting. I'm only glad it didn't critically injure students so either he was a bad shot or this is going to make a point to the two students he shot that they need to carry. Hopefully that's one of the first things they look into.The only part that gets me is he was using bolt-action. You mean to tell me that the teacher noticed this much and still couldn't confront him before he could chamber a second round? Jesus Christ! :X

    If I were him I would be trying to get in shape or do some self-training to know exactly what to do in that situation. Maybe move the desk closer to the door if it's a burden. Anyway it's good to see that at least one man decided to do something to save his class. Even if he needed help from other staff to do it. On another note the teachers in R.I. are fired?

    Yep we must remember all the "Conservatives" who have voted for gun control also.
    I am not anti Cop I am just pro Citizen.
