#1 Ever notice, most of US Mass Shootings tend to happen around National Elections and/or when Anti-Gun Bills are in congress?

Even more so, when the Democrats are hurting to votes going into an election.

Wonder why that is?

#2 Reports now that the shooter was allowed 45 minutes unimpeded in the school before he was stopped. Most of the sources I saw i would not rely upon or pass on. However, the Dallas Morning News seems to be saying something similar.

#5 Well, look, here's somewhere we do all come together, sorta. I really don't care how many bangas shoot each other in blue cities. And Bath House really doesn't care how many whites die from shootings, fentanyl, lack of work or sheer despair.

Where we part ways is, I will never pray to George Floyd's ghost. Ever.

#8  NEW: This is the hat the elite, veteran BORTAC Border Patrol agent was wearing when he breached the classroom with a tactical team and engaged/killed the Uvalde school shooter, a CBP source tells me. Graze wound to head. Many BP agents in Uvalde have kids at the school.

#14 If those doors have the anti-breaching locks on them, then you need a key or an F-250 with a cattle guard and a running start.

Or you can just start trollying bodies through the window.

#16 Most public buildings utilize a Knoxbox secure keysafe on the exterior (for fire and police emergency access) with master keys

So I'd wait for more info on that. Possible the BP offduty didn't have access?

#17 Or like fire departments, private systems as well. Still have to get the key to location.

There are times when the strongest part a facade is the door. None of defeating even a decent deadbolt is stealth ninja work.

With all considered pros and cons of this age of electronics and remote access, a 'master circuit key' is now a possibility.

Also, keep in mind, it is Daily Mail and The Hype Man's job to make this all look as bad and hopeless as possible, instead of checking into what the monster was and likely fates were decided within the first 10 minutes. Gunned down his grandma in cold blood, FFS.

#19 Columbine Redux - a lot of analysis produced a policy assessment that in school shootings that are active, active assault/engagement tactics, ad hoc if SWAT response is not timely, is essential to neutralize the ongoing threat and reduce overall loss of life. Can't determine yet if it was cowardice, poor leadership, or some as yet unknown that caused the apparent delay. In any case, after the grieving, some ruthless honesty is required.

Disposition is not active shooter, police tape up, people in background at casual pacing, possibly moving school bus up for a privacy screen.

I think everyone in that video knows there is no more good news, and no news is bad news. They would have to restrain me too.

Same as Columbine, Mandalay Bay hotel, Sandy Hook, Parkland FL, ... precision tactics require apriori strategy, 'swarm the shooter' is rarely practiced.

#51 All (or mostly all) excellent comments. Skid has it at #35 with "swarm the target." Shotguns, flash bangs, non-lethal, pour it on the SOB and move on the target, while simultaneously (extraction team), move kids out of the bldg.

Thank God there weren't more kids slain. The nutcase POS reportedly had an hour. Did the Fed's tell the local PD to stand down ?

Again, from the safety of my desk and swivel chair, but WTF ?

#58 No, there is a huge difference in manipulating a controller or keyboard and mouse to line up a shot and doing it with a 6-10 lb rifle. I enjoy shooting games and find very little cross over. It may let them see sight picture but in the game it's always nice and in focus and easy to see and it's not that way in real life. Certainly shooters didn't in any way count as practice when I was doing competition shooting in Service rifle matches. No, I suspect the fact that most of these shots they take are under 50' with a rifle is what makes a huge difference. Even if your 2" off at 50 yards with your zero, at 50' that isn't going to mean much. I also think the biggest factor is the sheer amount of time these guys seem to get.
