Here’s why its important to understand the weaponry used in this tragedy

I was cruising through my tv channels looking for more information on this shooting and stopped for a couple seconds on FoxNews.  As would be predicted, they were declaring that this tragedy would not have taken so many if there had just been some responsible adult with a gun there.

Here’s the problem with that statement.  The gunman was dressed to defend from another gunman.  He was wearing fatigues and reportedly some amount of body armor.  He also had a military style rifle much like a M-16 and two semi automatic handguns.  He didn’t want to be stopped.  But more importantly, the person who would have been able to stop him would have had to have similar weaponry.  

I don’t know about you, but I don’t want my children going to school with militarized soldiers roaming the hallways.  It just doesn’t seem like a relaxed environment conducive to learning to me. They should feel safe, but they also shouldn’t be constantly walking through a war zone.  And this is coming from a military parent who has a child going to school on a military base.

The sentiment that more guns would have helped here is an ignorant one at best.
