Wasn't a Semi-auto... Now what? Ban pump shotties?

So I saw this on the FB and this lady says:

"see, they had an armed officer on site and there was still an incident"

I replied: "Taft shooting, armed officer on duty: 0 deaths.... Newtown shooting, no armed officer on duty, 26 deaths... Looks like it works to me..."

I will say this, I went into Cabellas to get some ammo, for my 9mm, and they are sold out of just about everything, including guns. This crap, really does need to stop.

Not really. Not enough facts to make a proper assessment. The only thing we know is two different weapons were used. It certainly gives credit that the AR is a far more lethal weapon. But then we don't know what type of ammo the guy with the shotgun used, etc. etc. There are many more variables at play besides an officer being at one location and not another.

Well looks like I'll be picking up that 870 Walmart had last time I stopped in, hopefully it's still there.

How about the 800 last year?

How about the 7 shootings in NY from Jan 3- Jan 7 2013?

No?
Of course not.. how about the fact that only 3% of gun violence is a result of a 223, 556, or other rifle round.... the violence is a result of pistols

My Taurus 9mm has jumped 200.00 in price, glocks here are averaging 6-700.00. Ammo seems to be holding in the price. 14-16.00 for 50 rounds. AR bullets were nearly gone.

Apparently you have never fired a 12 guage buck shot.

Oh- please forgive us. A shotgun is just as lethal as a semi automatic rifle.

Apparently you don't know much about me, or what type of ammunition this kid went to the school with. And you obviously can't relate this shooting to the difference of weapons and the series of events and assumed coming legislation. Try to see the situation with some spin put on it.

Yes, as soon as the politicians stop trying to ban them

Black and blue. Probably from beating that hooker to death with my fists last night. Ask me again in a few days.
