No firearms ban could have stopped it. Do you really think someone prepared to commit murder and suicide is going to give a rats backside about breaking another law? Or twenty, or one hundred? All these laws do is create groups of defenseless potential victims. It it’s doubtful there is any reasonable passive defense that could have prevented it. The best chance you have for ending an event like this with minimal loss of life is a trained active, rapid response. That means people with firearms in our schools people. Preferably several each.
Was listening to some of our local talking head gun control sympathizers who want more gun control yesterday.
What they didn’t know, was that Connecticut has the 4th most stringent gun controls right now. Did it stop anything? No.
Gun control doesn’t work.
Control the mentally challenged, and guess what, the world is a safer place.
