Don't trust anybody.. Go buy guns now!! More guns = less gun crime....






If those guns are in the hands of responsible, law-abiding citizens properly trained in their use... then yes, that is pretty much exactly how it works. Glad to see your understanding and support.

Probably because we rarely get them.

I think Dunblane may have got a bit of press attention though.

In addition to some training for Bakersfield school staff down in San Diego the day before, the school itself had a drill just hours before the actual shooting:

Coincidentally, according to Taft School District Superintendent Bill McDermott, school staff participated in lockdown training this morning at 7:30 a.m. PST.

The title should be edited as none of the links I have read say anything about anyone being dead.

Everything I am reading says 2 shot one critical the other minor.

The shooter was 16 and used a 12 gauge shotgun.

www.huffingtonpost.com...


UPDATE: At a press conference held Thursday afternoon, Sheriff Donny Youngblood said that the shooter, a 16-year-old student at the high school, entered a science classroom at around 9 a.m. that morning armed with a 12-gauge shotgun.

According to Youngblood, the teen shot one student before shooting at and missing another. Law enforcement officials believe both students shot at were intended targets, and Youngblood said the shooter called his second target by name before firing.


www.reuters.com...


One student critically wounded by gunfire was airlifted to a nearby hospital, Kern County Sheriff Donny Youngblood said.

A second student received minor injuries while falling over a table trying the flee the classroom, and a third student was taken to a hospital complaining of hearing loss from the sound of a gun blast, Youngblood said.

The lone suspect, a 16-year-old male student, was arrested after a teacher and a school administrator who confronted him persuaded the boy to put his gun down, Youngblood told a televised news conference.


edition.cnn.com...


The victim was airlifted to a hospital in Bakersfield, Pruitt said.



As for the gun control nuts, please stop using the deaths injuries of others as pulpits for removing the rights of Americans. Guns are not the problems, the problem is mental health. We need to work on fixing mental health not removing gun rights.

Yet almost all the whack shooters had already been mentally 'treated' in some fashion or another before their killing sprees. Maybe we should have a closer look at exactly what those shrinks are doing to those kids. I think the real problem is the MK-Ultra mind controllers.

And if you focus on the 'mental health' part of it, it leaves open the possibility of a law for the mandatory mental screening of all gun owners, which is just another NWO meme.

The teacher in the room, who was trying to evacuate the classroom of about two dozen students, began engaging the suspect in conversation. The sheriff said at one point, the shooter told the teacher, "I don't want to shoot you" and named the person he wanted to shoot. A campus supervisor also joined the conversation, and they were able to get the young man to put the shotgun down. Police arrived and took the suspect into custody by 9:20 a.m. Police officials say the teacher's action saved many of the students.


With all the flack teacher's get because of the state of education in this country, a majority of those serving to educate kids are devoted professionals who don't think twice about protecting children whose parents have intrusted to them. They put their lives in danger not only when there's a shootings, but breaking up fights, defusing dangerous confrontations between students, protecting students from bullying and coming to a students aid when they have a school related accident. This is not to mention the many times they lend an ear to students who come to them for comfort and support because of broken homes, verbal and physical abuse.

Just what do you think would happen to me if I go stand guard at my kids' school with a gun in my pocket?

The only way I might not go to jail is if many others join me until our government can handle it themselves.

Oh and am I willing to jump in front of these kids? You're damn right I am. How about you?

not saying it's a conspiracy but again -



Coincidentally, according to Taft School District Superintendent Bill McDermott, school staff participated in lockdown training this morning at 7:30 a.m. PST.




An armed Taft Police Department officer is usually assigned to the school, however Youngblood said he was unable to report to the school today because he was "snowed in."


that is weird right?

Mandatory gun screening for mental health will only work on those trying to buy guns. No where have I read that this kid bought this gun. Do you know why that is? You have to be 18 to buy a shotgun/long rifle and 21 to buy hand gun.


An individual 21 years of age or older may acquire a handgun from a dealer federally licensed to sell firearms in the individual's state of residence.[7]
An individual 18 years of age or older may purchase a rifle or shotgun from a federally licensed dealer in any state. However, the applicant may not purchase a pistol gripped long gun that does not have a shoulder stock until he or she is 21 years of age.


en.wikipedia.org...

It has been this way since I was a kid.

The kid who shot up the school in CT also did not own the guns.

Again this is about treating those with mental health. I agree we need to look at what mental health workers are doing. At the same time we need to get families to treat mental health in a more serious manner.

If we have people expressing to others some serious sings of something being wrong they need to be watched far more closely. Even the mother of the CT kid was said to have siad she feared she was losing him near the end. If she and others would have taken greater steps to do something about his mental health that would not have taken place. She was a bit of a prepper from my understanding, I bet if we looked into it a bit she was likely talking to him about some stuff you can read on here knowing full well it could do more harm than good.

It is not about screening those looking to buy guns, though a small questionair would be nice to help catch those with some real problems. Many of the last few shootings were done by people who did not own the guns. They stole the guns from legal gun owners and had metal health issues. The problem is their mental health issues.

And then later the law will be changed to have annual mental health screening for all gun owners. And all the shrinks with those lucrative gub'mint contracts will have a certain quota they will be expected to meet. Again, it's not about keeping guns out of the hands of the nutcases; it's about chipping away at everyone's gun rights.

Sounds like hype. I haven't seen any real evidence Lanza was crazy. Maybe a little weird, but not crazy.

Yet the surviving whack shooters always end up in the big house, not the nut house. Truly insane people rarely go on shooting sprees.

I find it interesting that the school has a trap shooting class. And I figured I would look to see who it was that was running the class. It is the maintenance man.

He must be in maintenance with a family member.

Morris Gary MOT Manager gmorris@taft.k12.ca.us Maintenance, Operations and Transportation

Morris Russell Custodian Maintenance, Operations and Transportation

Trapshooters Club Gary Morris
www.taft.k12.ca.us...

So could the gun have came from inside the school? Did the teacher of the club keep it in the maintenance department?
