I wonder if he shot in self defence, or if this was mutual combat, or what. According to the article he will be charged with aggrevated assault.

I guess you haven't heard, "If it saves just 1 life, it is worth it", the left likes to use so often on MANY issues.

Did it EVER occur to you that some of those students just might be policemen or mitiary or ex-military or other mature adults trying to further their education?

Not ALL student are there just to party.

I wouldn't paint ALL students with your scorn for students.

There was a case in Va few years back where an armed person went into a college and was threatening everyone. 2 off duty police officers were in attendance. Because of the "gun free zone" law they could NOT carry into the school.

They both went to their cars and got their guns, Upon being challenged by these 2 cops the intruder was dis-armed and arrested with NOBODY getting shot.

As the left likes to say, 'If it saves only ONE life, it is worth it".

Exactly! This is what the liberals do all the time!

I can go on and on about why but I can't get off-topic.

NO ONE was going into the school loaded for bear and shooting up the school. You liberal anti gun people are sickening. At least get the facts straight before you start screaming the sky is falling.

On and NO evil "assault weapons" were used. Of course, that won't stop any of you from lying and making more BS up.
" At least get the facts straight before you start screaming the sky is falling."

Now THAT, would be a first!.

I bet you were happy when you found out they were black men.
"What role does their color have to do with the shooting??? "

Why don't you ask the media? They are the ones revealing the information.

These stories NEVER reach the MSM.

If a nation wants to confiscate guns, all they have to do is inform the people to turn in the firearms, and most people will comply. Those who would not comply, are the same people who would also refuse registration, so it doesn't make any difference. I do not think such registry would serve any true purpose, so I do not support it.
Looks like our friendly snow covered neighbor is ditching the registry.
