Hey kids, feeling left out? Feel like no one knows your name?

Well, how about I tell you how to get your name, picture and all your personal details on every major newspaper across the US for WEEKS!


All you have to do is go off your meds for a week.

We can't win this, can we. Like was said in another thread, we're TRYING to put on a positive image about guns and gun safety, but we're shoveling **** up hill.

Bet it'll come out that one of the gunmen had an AR15 too. ****!

I was listening to Fox news on Sirius on my way to work and they said there were several wounded and 2-3 dead.

They said SWAT was on scene and live photos showed several ambulances bringing in stretchers.

The link I posted was updated to list just 3 wounded... I pray it is more accurate than what they were saying on air...

I'll bet the school had a severe NO GUNS policy and at least sent letters to the state to keep the ability to post NO GUNS signs too.

No one dead, just wounded. There are reports that it started with 2 people fighting and the fight escalated to both people drawing guns and firing at each other.

Seems that way.

It's as if there is a secret government program that is creating killers and putting them into action so there will be gun confiscation.

Oops. That would be MK ULTRA. But that was shut down years ago...right?

That is actually good news. No one dead. Just two idiots playing Rambo with each other.

Just watching CNN now where they showed a student being interviewed smiling and and enjoying her time on TV. :mad:

Seems 5 or 6 shots were fired.

As long as any school remains a "Gun Free" zone, they will be the target of goblins! No gun law will change this fact! The only answer is take away all "Gun Free" zones. Today! Now!

Not sure I'd agree with that. This will be more fodder for anti-gun folks no matter how it's chalked up.

It could be the worst news for pro-gun folks yet. They may be CHL holders. What then?

Ugh. So frustrating.

Fantastic how the media was ready to jump on it as another mass shooting. I heard this on CNN on my way back from lunch, they sounded almost excited to have another school shoting.

Sounds like they were shooting at each other and those wounded were caught in the cross fire.
Wouldn't be surprised if the weapons used were stolen.

Will probably go off air soon since it wasn't a mass shooting....

Mass shootings in the USA have become an attention orgy for newshounds, perps, victims and bystanders. Perhaps if the newsies exercised their First Amendment rights with greater moderation, bad guys would not bother trying to be attention whores by gunning down lots of people.
