What Did and Did Not Stop the Maryland School Shooting

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The Maryland school shooting has predictably NOT garnered a lot of main stream media attention. Tragically one girl did lose her life, but it would have been much worse had an armed resource officer not engaged the dirtbag shooter.

Fred, the joke man, has found for us a list of what did not prevent or stop the school shooting in the leftist State of Maryland.

Let’s review:

What DIDN’T stop the Maryland school shooting:

Maryland’s assault weapon ban
Maryland’s 10-round magazine limit
Maryland’s universal background check requirement
Maryland’s law requiring an exhaustive application process to obtain a permit to purchase a handgun
Maryland’s law prohibiting purchase of more than one firearm per month
Maryland’s law requiring handgun registration
Maryland’s law requiring licensing of handgun owners
Maryland’s extremely limited approval of concealed carry permits
Maryland’s refusal to honor any concealed carry permit from another state
Federal law prohibiting handgun possession for people under 21
Laws against carrying without a permit
gun free zone laws
laws against discharging a firearm in public
laws against attempted murder

What DID stop the MD school shooting:

An armed person at the scene who engaged the shooter in less than a minute.

Conclusion?

More gun laws, of course.

  2. IMHO This fact needs to be included: “Rollins was confronted by a school resource officer and fatally shot himself in the head, the sheriff’s office said.” Significance being – I believe – that the perpetrator in these incidents expects “death by ‘cop'” to end their rampage. That does not invalidate the need for trained and armed individuals at schools. It does invalidate the nonsense of schools being a ‘gun-free zone.’
