    You wanna blow people away? This is what happens.

    On a very GOOD day. These guys lived. More than likely, you'll be blown away to kingdom come, statistically speaking.

    Source.

    Enjoy.

    Thanks, skidmark. I fixed the link in the OP. It does take about 20-30 seconds to load, though.

    I found it personally interesting as I attended a neighboring school, and watched, in 9nth grade, as a PE coach talked a student into giving up a gun he'd brought to class. Very brave, particular as the student was pointing it at the coach and several others.

    Good story and good reminder.

    However, who are you (the OPer) talking to when your title asks, "You wanna blow people away?" You realize you are implying OCDO readers are unbalanced enough that they need this story as a warning?

    I find I must concur with Citizen on this one.

    Please keep in mind that anti-gun people also read this forum. We don't want them to carry away any more wrong ideas about us than we can help. Point being, be more specific as to whom you're referring.

    Nope. My OP title "You wanna blow people away? This is what happens" is addressed to those kids (or adults) who would walk into public places firing left and right.

    It wasn't addressed to those of us law-abiding citizens who frequent this board.
