You are thinking too small. Everybody over the age of 18 15 12 needs to be armed, all the time. It's the only way to insure that we are safe.

Funny you say that as the gunman attacked a place where he wasn't the only armed person and look how it turned out.

Seriously, if at least the security could be armed legally, then folks who are armed illegally couldn't kill so much before being gunned down. Or is there some flaw in this logic that makes legal gun ownership such a bad idea?

Wait, wait, nevermind, I remembered the train incident. People either don't react fast enough, are afraid to, or afraid of the consequences in a situation like self-defense.

Please, please tell me this isn't meant to be an argument that the carnage was limited because of other armed people that prevented it. If so, it'd be pretty clear that you didn't bother to RTFA before commenting.

FTFA: After the shooting, the suspect immediately put down the gun and surrendered to hospital security

Guh?

The gunman was killed by a Birmingham police officer. Officials have not released this person's identity.

Yes. Because who knows who else he would've shot.

Happy 221st Birthday Second Amendment. God Bless well-regulated militias everywhere.

You know, the bill of rights is just a piece of paper. If enough of us think gun ownership is too stupid to handle, with too many negative consequences, for too many people, we could amend it. Been done before.

At approximately 4:00 a.m., officers from the South Precinct responded to the incident location to investigate a report of a person with a gun. Upon arrival, officers located the suspect on the 5th floor hallway. As officers approached, the suspect began firing a handgun at the officers, striking one officer and two members of the hospital staff. An assisting Birmingham Police officer returned gunfire fatally wounding the suspect. Due to the circumstances at the scene, the victims were transported to a neighboring hospital for treatment. The three victims' injuries are not life threatening.


Were the cops taking cover behind the hospital staff?

A lot. But, some of us cope. The others are farked up on prescription meds. Or, maybe it's that devil's breath shiat. Who knows.

To me, people stopped acting 'normally' decades ago.

And it sucks.
