    ugh this is awful...thoughts and prayers as well. 

    Do you know what 100 billion dollars could do in this country?  It could put two armed and trained security officers in every middle school, high school and university in the country.  Wouldn't that be nice?  I mean, if you're going to make a "gun free school zone", at least provide the school with a way of protecting itself.  It is my opinion, that in cases like these tragedies, more guns is the answer, not less.  
    The police shot her. And an armed officer would be target #1 right? A lot of good that does.

    6 people died.  Probably took 6-8 minutes for anyone with a gun to arrive.  Too long.  Threat could have been neutralized upon entry of school with 0 deaths.  I'll take that 100/100.  You wouldn't?

    You make no sense.

    The first person the gunman approaches will die. Armed guards don't generally point their weapon at anyone walking the hallway. If I want to pull a gun out and kill you I will before you even know what happened.

    Then I am free to start my spree.

    It doesn't matter how many armed people there are.

    so if I casually walk up to an armed officer and say "excuse me Sir" then pull my pistol and pop him in the melon how does he defend himself?

    He said 2 armed guards at first though. You'd only get the first one that way, assuming they arent just sitting next to each other. 
    But you're right, its hard to defend against that.

    yeah so they walk the property together?

    And if my intent is to shoot up the school then taking out two armed guards by surprise isn't going to get in my way. The element of surprise is an extreme advantage.

    Clearly those who believe more guns are the solution are the most ignorant assholes in this country.  Less means less, facts don’t lie.  And if you’re using today as an excuse to further your pro gun stance please stop…..people are preparing funeral services for their children.  Have some respect.

    Makes ya proud to live in a nation as great as this, right? Freedumbs, yea.

    This is the 129th mass shooting in the US this year

    From CNN's Elizabeth Joseph

    Monday morning's shooting at the Covenant School in Nashville, Tennessee, is the 129th mass shooting in the US so far in 2023, according to data from the Gun Violence Archive.

    The Gun Violence Archive, like CNN, defines a mass shooting as one in which at least four people are shot, excluding the shooter. 

    Three students and three adults were killed at the Covenant School. The shooter, who was identified as a 28-year-old Nashville woman, was also killed in a shootout with police.

    Last year, the US hit 100 mass shootings on March 19, per the GVA. The previous year, 2021, saw a late March date as well. From 2018 to 2020, the country didn't reach 100 mass shootings until May.

    This post has updated with the latest figures from the Gun Violence Archive.

    Do you know what 100 billion dollars could do in this country?  It could put two armed and trained security officers in every middle school, high school and university in the country.  Wouldn't that be nice?  I mean, if you're going to make a "gun free school zone", at least provide the school with a way of protecting itself.  It is my opinion, that in cases like these tragedies, more guns is the answer, not less.  
    The police shot her. And an armed officer would be target #1 right? A lot of good that does.

    6 people died.  Probably took 6-8 minutes for anyone with a gun to arrive.  Too long.  Threat could have been neutralized upon entry of school with 0 deaths.  I'll take that 100/100.  You wouldn't? 
    You make no sense.

    The first person the gunman approaches will die. Armed guards don't generally point their weapon at anyone walking the hallway. If I want to pull a gun out and kill you I will before you even know what happened.

    Then I am free to start my spree.

    It doesn't matter how many armed people there are. 

    yikes....spoken like someone who has 0 training with firearms.  Sorry dude, sit this one out. 
    lol...yeah because what I described just doesn't happen right?

    that happens with unarmed people, UNARMED.  not with trained professionals.  Take the L on this one...cant win em all. 
    so if I casually walk up to an armed officer and say "excuse me Sir" then pull my pistol and pop him in the melon how does he defend himself?

    Think outside the maga box borat

    i am trying to think outside the box!  i'd rather spend the 100 billion dollars HERE in AMERICA, protecting our children and teachers, rather then in a foreign land on a war that doesn't have anything to do with me/us.  America FIRST, not last.

    He said 2 armed guards at first though. You'd only get the first one that way, assuming they arent just sitting next to each other. 
    yeah so they walk the property together?

    And if my intent is to shoot up the school then taking out two armed guards by surprise isn't going to get in my way. The element of surprise is an extreme advantage.
    They're usually not together. Not close enough to get the surprise in on both of them anyway.
    But you are right that it is almost impossible to defend against.

    The way most schools are set up though, it would be hard to get that opportunity.  Most schools are pretty secure, with the only entrance being heavily monitored, usually even requiring someone to buzz you in. You state your name, what business you have, etc. They buzz you in, the first person you see may not be armed police, but a secretary who buzzed you in. She's going to ask you to sign in, verify why you're there and give you a visitor pass. If things aren't checking out, she'll call security and they'll be alarmed to a suspicious person. SO its not as simple as just walking up to the first police officer you see and pulling a trigger.
    I don't know why I still see people laughing at the open door in the Uvalde shooting. We've been threatened with write ups for leaving doors open because if you open side doors, it completely invalidates the entire security system. It's a legit thing to point out. 

    But my guess is this school was completely different. Only 200 kids and sounds like it is run through the church. There could have been minimal security, and even parents/volunteers walking in and out during the day, and maybe even activities within the church as well.

    I'm not advocating for more guns in schools. Just commenting on your response.

    how likely is a school shooter going to try and shoot up a school, knowing there are two trained and armed guards in it?  I think it would drastically cut down school shootings.

    You know that there were armed guards at school shootings within the last few years right? You know that right?

    The kind of a nightmare world you seem to envision is not something most of us are interested in.   "More guns is the answer".  The one dimensional arm everyone to the hilt.   What a clusterfuck that would be.  Maybe you already live in such a place.  No thanks, pal.
