Nik Cruz fired at his victims for three uninterrupted minutes at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
He had an AR-15-pattern rifle (a Smith and Wesson M&P15) – but with three uninterrupted minutes, he could easily have killed that many people with any garden-variety handgun, a hunting rifle, a shotgun – anything.
…unless one person – a teacher, a principal, a freaking janitor – had put some lead in his general direction. Broken him out of his narcissistic reverie with even the imminent threat of lethal resistance.
One lousy shot. Just one.
Think of the lives that oculd’ve been saved.
But no. To assuage the neo-religious faith that disarming the law-abiding hinders criminals, every adult in the building, like every adult at every school shooting (with two exceptions – here and here). ever.
I’m done playing nice with the gun grabbers.
