I was reading the sprint news blurbs n my cell phone and came across a CNN story where they actually admitted a armed deputy in the building stopped the shooter from carrying on his killing. The shooter ( not surprisingly) chose to end his cowardly life and not engage the deputy. One minute twenty seconds. One innocent little girl terribly hurt but would have been tragically worse if no one was armed in the school that day. Ill try to paste the link....

The deputy was a school resource officer. He is mentioned on page 2 and page 3. So having an armed person at a school does help, contrary to what the anti 2A crowd says.

That's what surprised me,, usually the lamestream media will go to great lengths to downplay the effectiveness of guns to stop gun violence.

Its hard to cover this though.
"How was the situation bright to an end?"
"An armed officer intervened"
"In under two minutes?"
"Well, he was there as a resource officer..."

Im surprised obama didnt send his gestapo to try and cover this one up. This kinda proves that armed security in schools makes things safer. Lets hope that those wounded recover. I'm glade that this was contained but still is sad that people got hurt like they did.

Glad they stopped the little coward... Would be better if the responder had been an armed staff member though.

Tack

I don't know why the media covers these mass killers. The liberal media is guilty as hell. Gun owners don't make some mental case a household name. I guarantee no one knows the name of any of the shooters on the US national team, but they know the names of psychopaths who shoot kids.

I honestly was surprised that most schools didn't have armed officers on staff when i learned about this the last coulee years. I graduated in 08 from a little country town in Oregon most people have never heard of and we had a resource officer. When i was in middle school in an even smaller town the middle school had one too. Its a no brainer that its safer that way.
