    Another Gun Control Success... I Mean Failure...

    Another School Shooting That The Brady Bill(s), NICS, etc., Ad nauseam, and Decades of Second Amendment Infringements on Law Abiding Firearm Owners Did NOTHING to prevent...

    (CNN) -- The man suspected of shooting two students at a Littleton, Colorado, middle school was identified as 32-year-old Bruco Strongeagle Eastwood, authorities said Wednesday.
    Eastwood was arrested after the incident Tuesday at Deer Creek Middle School and is scheduled to appear in court Wednesday morning, according to the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office. He is facing two counts of attempted first-degree murder, the sheriff's office said.
    He is accused of shooting two students as classes were letting out at 3:15 p.m. Tuesday.
    David Benke, a 6-foot-5 former college basketball player who is a math teacher and track coach, tackled the suspected gunman as he was preparing to fire again, CNN affiliate KMGH reported.
    "[The shooter] was trying to rack another round," Benke told the station. "I knew he couldn't get another round in before I got to him, so I grabbed him."
    A parent who saw the incident told KMGH that the gunman kept mumbling, "I'm fighting for freedom. I'm fighting for freedom," as he was being subdued.
    The students, a boy and a girl, were taken to Littleton Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, a sheriff's office spokeswoman said.
    Tuesday's shooting occurred in the same area as one of the deadliest school shootings in U.S. history, the 1999 killing of 12 students and a teacher at Columbine High School. The two gunmen in that incident, both Columbine students, then turned their guns on themselves...

    How could this have happened?? Schools are gun free zones, there are no guns there!!

    Seriously, my mom is a school teacher. She emailed this to me today, and asked me if I would take her to the firing range this weekend. Two months ago she was an anti. She told me that guns should be illegal. I told her drugs should be, too. I guess she's starting to see the light.

    Our governments (Fed, states, cities) are not doing their jobs to protect us. This is government's #1 function. Violent criminals should be locked up for their entire sentences. 3 strikes should be one strike - how many crimes has the average miscreant committed before they are caught even once? Charges (especially weapons charges) should not be plea-bargained away. That's a start.
