    Is it the teacher's responsibility to engage in an active shooter situation? Should a teacher be expected to take a bullet for a student? As a teacher, I struggle with these questions.

    This is the site where the info came from. I believe they are taking into account any shooting involving 4 or more people, even low profile cases we don't necessarily hear about. https://www.gunviolencearchive.org

    Gut Shot, I wasn't trying to be critical of your stats. I am not in favor of gun laws that restrict law abiding citizens. I just think we have the best chance to prevent before the threat becomes a threat and not during if that makes sense.

    AR 15 and 10 type rifles

    Gut Shot, You've listed 23 examples that spans the course of 20 years. As of Aug. 5th, there already have been 255 mass shootings in 217 days just in 2019. Unfortunately I don't think the majority of Americans will find this to be a good enough prevention strategy.

    I just think Europe was giving context of the conversation. I don't think there was any intent other than to tell a story.

    One of the big thoughts about things like addiction is lack of bonding. This is a real interesting article about how human connection can have a real positive affect on curbing drug addiction. I think it has its implications with some of these people involved in mass shootings as well...

    I agree with this statement 100%. I am a teacher who is very comfortable around guns but I am not a cop, a military trained person, or a threat negotiator. Expecting teachers to perform these types of initiatives without training is asinine

    I think we need to look at primary prevention methods. I work in education. I'm starting my 17th year. Here is just some anecdotal info that I've noticed. I teach health education so topics like depression, suicide prevention, trauma, etc. are very common place in my classroom. 1. When I...

    AR 15 and 10 type rifles

    If a ban or law were to occur that would include ar-15 weapons, what would the logistics look like? Everyone just turns in their guns? Marshall Law with the emphasis on black gun round up? There are so many guns floating around the United States. Or high capacity magazines? How many 30...

    used rifles (and shotguns)

    I have a great gun store close to me that lets you rent out guns. You actually take them home (the place only has a pistol range). At the end of the buying season (right now actually) they put these guns out for sale. I've bought so many guns from this place and all are in like new condition...

    How much shooting?

    Good glass is expensive, and I only take a couple of rifles on any given trip

    Clam...I've never used a 20 moa rail before. I'm just curious as to what yardage you have your rifles zeroed at?

    I've gone full circle on optics. I first only bought 3x9 scopes, then thought if I had more magnification, it will be an easier shot. These scopes turned out to be heavy and head placement had to be perfect every time with eye relief that wasn't as forgiving at higher magnifications. I've...
