" "He was working on his rifle," said Meli. "He kept pulling the charging handle and hitting the side."

The break in gunfire allowed Meli to pull out his own gun, but he never took his eyes off the shooter.

"As I was going down to pull, I saw someone in the back of the Charlotte move, and I knew if I fired and missed, I could hit them," he said.

Meli took cover inside a nearby store. He never pulled the trigger. He stands by that decision.

"I'm not beating myself up cause I didn't shoot him," said Meli. "I know after he saw me, I think the last shot he fired was the one he used on himself.""

Oh wait, were you using "reach" as a political term? Well, even so, my response is the same. I will give up years and years and years to settle whatever score you intend to keep.

How many would have been killed at Columbine if each had the same AR15 with 150 Round clips?
Tell me there would not have been more killed.
The Columbine killers were never directly confronted by police and could have killed as many as they wanted, regardless of their weapons. They just got tired of the slaughter and finally committed suicide.

Look at the numbers dumbass. More would have been killed had the shooters been betters aims, not the number of rounds in a clip.

Every school in The Country should HAVE an armed, highly skilled/trained Marksman on the premises.
As it's been suggested by The NRA and many others.

Since these crazies are now wearing bullet proof vests, we now need Sharpshooters and Smartshooters.

First shot, to the head. No hesitation.

Like Wayne LaPierre stated:( paraphrasing ): "While guns are good/OK when they are used to protect The President, Politicians, Our Country via Military, and **The President's Children, when it comes to protecting Our School Children guns are not good/OK".

I don't "see" what the **Liberal balk is with statement of fact with regards to Obama's Children.

Every school in the country should post notice that they have armed security, whether they do or not.
Advertising that they have no security is absurd.

A trained police office can hit a moving target only 27% of the time, yet we train our kids and teachers to hide in closets if a gunman comes to their school.

I don't even know why we are talking about clips, when it seems unstable people and anti-depressants are the common factor in all these shootings.

How many schools you reckon are in this country, fatty?
What do you think the percentage is of schools with mass killings?
And most importantly you tea bag imbecile, who is going to pay them to sit around doing nothing for 30 years?
You stupid fks don't even want to pay the teachers.

" Simulations by the Office of the Actuary suggest that roughly 15 percent of Part A providers would become unprofitable within the 10-year projection period as a result of the productivity adjustments [in Obamacare].2 Although this policy could be monitored over time to avoid such an outcome, changes would likely result in smaller actual savings than described here for these provisions.

Exactly my point.
Personally know several teachers who are better marksmen and have better judgment than the average cop.

Obama is a master showman, using props for maximum effect. Greek columns imparted a 'godlike' illusion, little children, one of compassion.
