  •  I just found this interesting is all (3+ / 0-)
    You assume that every psychotic thinks about (0+ / 0-)

    their dastardly deeds as you would.

    Say they start a fire in multiple places and then waits outside in a tree for the fire alarms to go off? As the children are escorted out of the burning building they get killed one by one.  What do the teachers do? Keep the children in a burning building or get them outside where they'll be killed?

    What's to say a psychotic person won't buy a monster truck and drive it through the school yard a recess?

    Nice to know somebody's thinking about innovative mass murder techniques, I guess.

    Of course, banning assault weapons and high-capacity magazines would inhibit a killer's ability to rack up the same body count by making it slower and more error-prone, giving people a better chance to escape and more time for law enforcement to respond, but oh well; gerrilea calls that "feel good" legislation.

    We demanded a plan to reduce gun violence. Now it's time to demand a vote.
