Especially to keep the count correct, since the guys who need a gun just to get an erection tend to overestimate by several magnitudes of order.

There haven't even been that many school shootings, guntards
 
2013-02-03 05:41:58 PM  
Sounds like this was a mugging picking the wrong target, rather than a school shooting prevented by a hero.

Therefore quiet, all of you... they're approaching the Tyrannosaur paddock.

Exactly.  2 students who go to the school the guy coaches at try to rob him while he was walking them to their car.  How the hell did they think they were going to get away with that?

Funny how it is the "progressives" that seem to like to misquote Freud, perhaps it is their way of projecting their "little issues" onto those they fear- or perhaps lust after?

Use it however you want. Just don't pretend that this story will be given the same coverage as the tragic ones. My guess is that this school's choir doesn't get invited to sing at the Superbowl next year.

Glad you can read. He was walking 2 female students to their car, 2 males, former studentsn approached and tried to rob him.

Carrying a gun into a school should be a federal offense.

They should count the good guys, but there is no possible way.  A great majority of "good" gun encounters are the kind where the good guy shows his/her gun and the bad guy just backs off; no report is ever made.
 
2013-02-03 07:47:53 PM  
Blah blah blah, guns bad; blah blah blah

It's not a gun control problem; it's a people control problem. Until someone figures out how to either control humanity or breed violence out; we will be a small people; a silly people; barbarous and cruel.
 
2013-02-03 07:48:04 PM  
Seems like there is a difference here. Those two guys intended to rob him according to the article. That strikes me as a little different situation than "two guys bent on killing people for shock value".

Good for the coach though.

To the best of my knowledge, ALL schools are gun free zones. I think he did the right think, I also think he should be charged, too.

So you're 100% in favor of banning civilians from owning certain weapons, now we're just arguing over where to draw the line. Glad we cleared that up.

The Constitution can be amended. The rules written by a handful of rich, white, racist slaveowners 200 years ago can be changed, and should be changed if they fail to keep up with fundamental changes to our American culture.

It can't be denied that people are outraged and horrified at the sheer volume of gun violence news these days.

Anyone who carries a gun is a bad guy.

That's my point. News stories where guns are used responsibly and effectively are typically ignored by the press. If they treated the tragic stories the same, perhaps we wouldn't see as many copycats. I blame the 24/7 news cycle for extending the life of a lot of these stories.

Who shouldn't be allowed unlimited access to guns?
 
2013-02-03 07:51:08 PM  
The fact that someone tried to put this story up as an example of the "Good Guy With a Gun" lie only shows how desperate for actual examples they are.

Based on what?  You think it's interstate commerce?

Federal gov needs to dry up by several orders of magnitude.

I wonder if any noticed that the shooter was a reserve police officer . . .

In other worse, we amend the constitution to allow the government to make it a federal offense to possess a gun on school grounds?

That sounds like a good idea, and should definitely show those school shooters.

Even *successful* muggings are given virtually no air time.  This story will be largely ignored not because it isn't tragic, but because it isn't as compelling a story as a larger crisis such as a school shooting.  

If a school shooting were stopped by a guy with a gun, we'd hear about it.  Sadly, that doesn't happen very often, if ever.

87 people were killed by guns yesterday (and today, and tomorrow, and...) and I don't recall seeing a front page, 30-point font headline on CNN.com about any of those either.

Maybe you should be encouraging your fellow "good guys with guns" to report crimes to law enforcement, so that you'd have something other than a bare assertion pulled from your ass.

Well, given that CCW holders can't carry in schools in 46 or states, and most schools don't have even a single armed resource officer/security guard/police officer, I suppose that's why it doesn't happen.
 
2013-02-03 07:55:20 PM  
Why did he shoot the unarmed kid? Is it legal to shoot an unarmed person in Michigan because they were with an armed person attempting to rob you? When I took the class for my CCW here in Cali, we were told we couldn't shoot people who were unarmed and/or posed no immediate threat. We have to BE threatened, not simply FEEL threatened.

/curious about the laws there about this sort of thing.

did the gun pick itself up and kill the person?

How do you get 87?  Are you including suicides?

So the tens of millions of people in those 4 states isn't a large enough sample size for you?
