    .....*sigh*.....

    This situation does not bode well for gun owners.

    These school shootings are getting to be pretty high in number

    Good grief! How did this kid get his hands on an AK-47, if that is truly what it was? Some parent isn't paying attention to their child, or to where and how their firearms are stored I think.

    I work in Joplin and live about 20 mile south. Very sad to see our youths being so stupid.

    My big question.... how the "F" does a 13 year old kid get an AK into school and carry it around without ANYONE arrousing suspicion?!?! I mean, they don't fit nicely into a backpack. A banana clip can't really be explained away, but neither can a friggin rifle like that.

    I honestly think that the teachers and school administrators failed, here. At Columbine, they came inside and started shooting. This child was 1/3 of the way through his school day.......

    You have to ask yourself this... would he have tried that if he knew his Principal, Vice Principal, Counselor, and the Teacher (s) were armed?

    More info. It was a Mac-90 and the reason he only fired one shot and left was.... THE GUN JAMMED!!!! The admin then just followed the kid outside and pointed him out to the police. Why he wasn't beating the tar out of the kid and disarming him I don't know, call it sheep complex. Thank god the kid was too stupid to clear the jam.

    A teacher in Virginia Beach, at a christian school, was able to stop the first modern school shooting by jumping on the yute when his MAC (or Ingram??) jammed.
