I think the sad thing is we will hardly hear about this story since no one was actually killed.
#3 Posted by TooWalrus (13130 posts) -

Ha, when I was in high school, a kid showed up in the parking lot and shot his girlfriend four times in the chest, then shot himself. The girl was pregnant too. But it was haliarious! He shot the chick FOUR times, and she LIVED! Her baby too. Crazy.

@TooWalrus: that is crazy that she lived. maybe she can become a rapper now. 
 
in my school some kid brought in a gun to school. he didn't live in the town he lived in a city like next couple of towns over. he was stupid and told a lot of people. when somebody did tell the principle the gun ended up just being a air-soft gun that was spray-painted black. everyone just laughed about it.

My dad told me about this this morning. He said the kid walked in, shot some rounds at the ceiling, sat at a desk, and waited to be arrested. What an idiot.

Ugh... Teenagers and their inability to deal with themselves.

That's kinda weird though that he didn't hurt anyone. He could have easily taken out (or at least hurt) the teacher and his classmates. Thank God it didn't happen and you're ok, but this makes me believe this was him wanting attention but didn't really want to kill anyone. Or maybe he realized what he was doing was fucked up after the first shot.

 "It was just kind of surreal to me," student John Smith told FOX 5 as he left the campus. "It's the first time I have been at a school with a shooting."
 
Only his first? Sorry to be cynical at a matter like this... But seriously?

There are better ways to get attention than getting arrested.

Were either of them significantly harmed or scarred or whatever?
#15 Posted by eroticfishcake (7782 posts) -

That's an unusual case of a high school shooting or lack thereof anyway. Regardless of what he did, at least nobody got hurt.

Well the dude died on the spot. The girl is now a facebook celebrity or something.

Yep, and that's why that kid fails. It's like when a bunch of people tried to admit to the Zodiac killings. But I'm talking out my ass. Either way, it's a good thing this mishap didn't turn into a tragedy.

This happened to me once, sept it wasn't my baby and I didn't get shot 4 times...

I really don't want to say it, but I will, this is why I'm glad we don't have guns in the UK.
 
But regardless, that's fucked up, and I'm glad no-one was hurt, that kid is fucked up.

But how will you defend yourself when your military turns their back on the citizens and tries to enslave you?

How about no? The lack of guns legally makes them much more easily available.

@TheMustacheHero: 
Given the current state, it's more likely the army turn against the government, rather than the public.
 
  @ahriman22: Agreed, they are available, but even black marketeers have some discretion. I mean, six year olds can't just walk into the living room and pick one off the rack, which is going to be loaded, but potentially have the safety. It is easier to get a hold of in the USA, because everyone has access to one. Also, the last time there was a school shooting in the UK, it was caused by a mentally disabled, IRA sympathiser.

#31 Posted by Amberella (163 posts) -

There was a stabbing at my old high school recently. (I graduated) The boy who got stabbed is partially brain dead because the guy stabbed him in the neck and he lost too much oxygen to the brain. Stabbed him right in his artery, lost a lot of blood. There's a long story behind it too of why it happened. =/

"I'm about to make history"
Yeah, history of the laziest school shooter ever.

#33 Posted by ahriman22 (2747 posts) -
@CandleJakk: Actually, it's illegal to have any guns on "display" or in any place that's easily accessible to some clever child. Guns must be kept in safes at all time that they are present in the home except for cleaning and such things. Any idiot that keeps their guns loaded AND in a place that any kid or teenager can get them shouldn't even be allowed to own guns.

@Heartagram:  Believe it or not, that is my Calculus teacher that was shot at. I didn't know that student though. He wasn't one of my classmates.
#37 Posted by CandleJakk (766 posts) -
@ahriman22: Okay, I will admit I don't know the US Firearms laws inside and out, certainly regarding that common sense first part about keeping them in safes, which does make sense, but as far as I can work, generally unenforceable except in cases of chance. Most houses I know of that have guns, (be they shotguns for hunting or air rifles), are always loaded, just in case of intrusion, to be used as a last resort threat. Even my dad says 'What's the point in having a gun if it's not loaded?', even if we only use it to shoot vermin.
 
However, it is my belief that if you try and shoot another human, you're a moron who deserves what's coming to you.
#38 Posted by mrfizzy (1513 posts) -

My god, i really do not know what to say. I live in Australia so apart from rural areas we really dont have guns to be honest. Its illegal to own any sort of automatic or semi-automatic firearm here unless your police or military.

#40 Posted by Origina1Penguin (3500 posts) -

It doesn't say it in that article, but the gun was a .30-06 bolt-action rifle bought at a Dick's Sporting Goods store. Fortunately, the gun jammed on him.

#41 Posted by ki11tank (675 posts) -

damn i see this and think how lucky i am to be alive, i would have been a prime suspect to get shot up by some nut job at my high school.. and no not because i was some hardcore bully...

#42 Edited by FluxWaveZ (19305 posts) -

Not that I would want it to happen, but how the hell did he not manage to shoot a single person when he was planning to at least gun down the teacher?  That makes him a double idiot.

Really? Wow... What a great weapon to chose for shooting up a school. While .30-06 is powerful, using it for this situation was probably the best proof of how much of a retard he was.
 
He should've lrn27.62mm.
 
EDIT: Actually 9mm, because at 25 cents a round, it's much better. And 7.62 is military...

As an Australian, this thread scares the shit out of me. 
 
That said, hopefully Jack Thompson will come out of 'retirement' to report that this kid loved Counter-Strike and believed him to be a consumed by 'virtual reality in hyper reality'.
