It's all so STUPID, it's a wonder that they don't tie their shoes together in the morning.

Not to mention that the bad guy with gun drawn showed up cuz he plans to use it..and has no bias against murder..and the good guy has to mentally shift gears to believe what is actually happening, and deal with it.

One thing people seem determined to forget: The bad guy already has his gun drawn! Try how you might, you will never get the drop on him.

and how can we forget about the "armed volunteer" that left his handgun in the restroom of a middle school?

Armed guards at schools won't stop anything from happening...if someone is determined to cause mayhem, they will...by the time the armed guard takes their weapon out of the holster, take off the "safety" and get into position (while alerting the school to what's going on), the perpertrator would have shot him several times....they would come to the school prepared to take them out...this is just another dumb idea that they (gun nuts) won't believe doesn't work until it is PROVEN that it doesn't work...talking to them doesn't help...they think they know better than the rest

JaneyB, agree re military style weapon bans. Also agree re therapy WITH drugs..always remembering that therapy doesn't even register with those who have certain biochemical mental illnesses unless the chemistry is first corrected with medication. Which they usually don't take reliably long term. There's nothing guaranteed even when MH tries to do it right. Especially on the limited money left to mental health these days, since they have been repeatedly robbed of funds to pay for other "imperatives", beginning with the Reagan administration.

We can start with the basics and eliminate the military weapons that no civilian needs. Add to that universal screening before purchase, then maybe convince the mental health world that while drugs have been helpful people also need therapy even though it is more expensive.

Here is ANOTHER case for guns: A F/B friend posted her 12 yr old neighbor SHOT HERSELF IN THE HEAD TODAY! No reason was listed, so I don't know if it was an accident or a suicide; but here AGAIN, a GUN was in the wrong hands!
So much SENSELESS VIOLENCE! GOD HELP US ALL! SOMETHING MUST BE DONE!

People who get a little "power" (& MANY TIMES it's only in their MIND) become VIGILANTES!
Look at the Trayvon Martin case! The guy who shot & killed him was on the NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH! They get a little authority & they think they are Bruce Willis in the DIE HARD movies; but act more like BARNEY FIFE!
We don't need any more NUT JOBS with guns! We need COOLER HEADS TO PREVAIL!

What happened at that shooting range just goes to show that ANYBODY can turn into a KILLER when they hold a loaded weapon! HOW MANY MORE PEOPLE NEED TO BE KILLED BY "FRIENDLY FIRE"?
The "crazed volunteer" outside the school could hear a BACKFIRING CAR & start SHOOTING; bc he thought he heard gunshots! THAT IS NOT AN ANSWER!

That whole "armed person" can prevent shootings theory kinda blew up in their faces when Chris Kyle was murdered last week along with another good guy shooter at a shooting range doesn't it? Just sayin'..both men were experienced to the max..and they are both dead.

Having a crazed volunteer with a gun outside my school would not make us safer.

"Crazy" is too kind an adjective for Joe Arpaio. Racist crook is more like it.
