If only the school didn't have walls then they would have been able to sniper the shooter.

Ban walls.

Good guys with guns indeed.

So the nutcase was alone with the kids and his rifle for an hour? Fucking hell that's horrible. I'm guessing those cops only had pistols so felt unprepared to take him on. Still fucking sickening though

The shooter was apparently in armour as well, so you have to assume they'd be cautious about shooting but not incapacitating him.

That's a big "apparently", there are other stories that the police were just fucking useless.

But, but, good guys with guns? Oh, yeah, American police...

The cop in this video admits that at least one cop went into the school early to try to get their own kid out.

QuoteUNITED KINGDOM
In the United Kingdom, there are currently no legal restrictions on the purchase and ownership of body armour.

UNITED STATES
In the United States it is legal to purchase and possess body armour, except for a few states:
  • In Connecticut, body armour can only be purchased in person, and cannot be purchased online, over the phone, or by mail.
  • In New York, a proposed ban of body armour for private citizens is currently debated.
  • In Kentucky, committing a crime while wearing or even owning body armour is a crime in and of itself
  • In Louisiana, it is illegal to wear body armour on school property or on campus.

So, the US is less free than the UK on the issue of body armour. Funny old world, innit?

Honestly, I'm not sure what a non-useless response looks like in this case. Shooting from afar and not even injuring the shooter seems like a bad option on the assumption that maybe that just prompts them to shoot all the kids straight away. Storming the classroom, but maybe they're armoured enough that you can't incapacitate them quickly but they manage to quickly take out a few kids before they get overpowered. Maybe piping in some sort of gas? I don't know if there's a way to guarantee zero dead kids.

in a way yes but then again we don't have a constant voice like the NRA's tooting out we all should stock up with it and guns to 'protect' ourselves, I hope to god we never go down that cultural rabbit hole of what our rights are for guns etc

Vitamin C

All schools should have a deadly gas ready to be piped in at any moment. Problem solved.

Texas needs to get a move on and ban it ASAP. Lives are at stake here.

In the Moscow theater hostage crisis in 2002 the Ruskies pumped an unknown drug into the building, which successfully subdued 40 hostage-takers but also killed up to 130 innocents.

Parents just have to accept that when they send their kids off to school there's a small chance they won't be coming back alive. Sad but true.

Ban everything apart from guns and then work backwards from there. Bullet based currency until money is unbanned.

Just control the ammo, I mean the constitution says nothing about that (no idea really)

'Don't be triggered?' How are the staff and pupils meant to fire their God-given guns then?

Ballistic blankets sounds like a very specific cut-price store

A series of interlocking doors / tripwire / trap the shooter like a rat really sounds like a classic Harry Shearer simpsons line
