A 17-year-old armed with a shotgun and a pistol opened fire at a Houston-area high school Friday, killing 10 people, most of them students, authorities said. It was the nation's deadliest such attack since the Feb. 14 massacre in Florida that gave rise to a campaign by teens for gun control.

............." armed with a shotgun and a pistol".......

RBear said school shootings could be prevented if AR-15's were banned.

Fake once again you get the comment wrong. I said the likelihood of MASS SHOOTINGS could be significantly reduced with the ban of assault weapons. If you're going to reference one of my comments, get it right. You were rambling all over the place and disrespecting the loss of life of students yesterday. Such an idiot.

The " usual suspects" who blamed everything on AR-15's are eating crow this morning.

One of them put MASS SHOOTINGS in all caps as if to insinuate that this Texas shooting didn't qualify as a mass shooting.

So sad. While I am in complete agreement that we need to do something to abate the flood of shootings related to military style weapons, this shooting emphasizes a different and very real problem of school security. I do not believe the introduction of MORE guns into school settings will solve anything, and in fact will create its own set of new problems. Human behavior is the problem, and trying to turn teachers into impromptu guards merely offers new opportunity for disaster when some teacher or administrator goes off the rails. I believe the solution here is exactly the same as that long in practice at airports, military bases, courthouses and numerous other venues. Schools should be secure zones, with controlled access in and an infrastructure to do that tailored to the particular nature of mass entrance in the mornings. The remainder of the day is fairly simple. Can we admit to ourselves that we have made no real effort to make schools safe and divert some of the money that is spent per pupil each year to genuine security? Ask yourself this question: If this teenager had decided that he was going to kill everyone on board of a morning flight from Houston to somewhere else, exactly how far do you think he would have gotten? To expensive? Google Allen, Texas football stadium for a look at a high school football venue, in Texas, that seats 18,000 people. C'mon, let's DO something about this that we actually can do.

It said he came to school wearing a dark trench coat.

How many kids wear dark trench coats to school in a part of Texas known for heat and humidity ?

Any adult employee of a school should be allowed to have a gun in school .........if they WANT to.......and undergo extensive training and extensive back ground checks prior to.

You are right, GeneralMac, we should be blaming the, apparently, irresponsible gun owning father. Perhaps making it a criminal offense for the gun owner to have his guns used in a crime would help reduce the number of people from killing others.

Only fake would celebrate a mass shooting committed with something other than an assault weapon.
...
BTW, for all those who say enforce the current laws tell me how this could have been stopped by law enforcement AHEAD of the mass shooting. Yea, not expecting any rational rebuttals on that one.

" for all those that say" enact new gun control laws, "tell me how this could have been stopped by law enforcement AHEAD of the mass shootings "

Short of outlawing, and then CONFISCATING, all shotguns and handguns , what gun control legislation could have prevented this ?

Naive Florida students wanting Trump to enact gun control measures.
WHAT, gun control measures ?
