OP Troll successful.

No one killed except shooter.

Death Toll, Except shooter = Zero.

Sounds like OP is making Wayne's case.

CreampuffCasperMilktoast: firefly212: Where does this idiocy stop for the people who think guns solve problems?

Perhaps guns don't solve the problem, but barring sane individuals from possessing them won't either. There is no real answer other than to allow people the option of carrying them, and hoping the "unknown" aspect will be deterrent enough for a would be mass murderer.

Really, we have no way of trying to keep guns from falling into the hands of the mentally ill, because I thought mandatory mental health checkups prior to purchase and periodically thereafter was a pretty good way to make a dent in the number of crazy people with guns. I don't think the gov needs a specific diagnosis, just a yes/no checkbox from a licensed psychiatrist or psychologist, hell, I'd even settle for an assesment from an MSW. Counting on crazy people to be able to perform an adequate threat assessment doesn't seem like much of a plan at all.

damn yanks: No if the police weren't armed the 30 people would have been shot instead of 3.

How would the prisoner have gotten the gun, had the police not provided it to him through their negligence?
What would he have shot them with, if not the cops gun? Rubber bands?

Bontesla: justtray: Incog_Neeto: dittybopper: Actually, they did subby:

Three New Jersey police officers were reportedly wounded during a shooting inside the Gloucester Township Police station.
MyFoxPhilly.com reports that the suspected shooter has been shot and killed.

Initial report is that 3 are wounded, and the shooter was shot and killed.

Seems to me that having a bunch of guns around prevented that from being much worse.


Except when you realize he used their gun.... Jesus. Stupid is a stupid does.

It's almost as though the gun made the situation more dangerous. Odd. That a lethal weapon capable of killing multiple people in seconds could potentially create additional danger is just so very unexpected.

Like a car
