The student who shot and killed a teacher and injured two students Monday at a Nevada middle school used a semi-automatic handgun, police officials said in a press conference.

The student shot and killed Michael Landberry, a math teacher at Sparks Middle School.

The student also shot two 12-year-old boys, one in the shoulder and the other in the abdomen, according to officials. Both injured boys are in stable condition.

It's only when a gun is used that a murder is publicized. Biased reporting can't be made up!!

BTW, knives are all fully automatic with NO LIMIT on the number of people that can be stabbed. There is NO magazine to limit when it can't be used any longer. PLUS knives are quiet so a stabbing can go undetected.

Yes, all media is biased towards the left.

A 12 year old brings a gun to school and kills his math teachers and wounds several others and that isn't newsworthy?

A kid with a knife is much easier subdued that a kid with a semi-automatic weapon. This is blood on the NRA and Republican party's hands.

How many more innocents must die before we enact reasonable gun control laws?

Are you denying the murder and other injuries using a knife occurred?

Should we be focused on all weapons, not just guns?

We should be focusing on preventable homicides.

There is no reason for anyone outside of law enforcement or the military to have semi-automatic weapons.

This was a preventable tragedy.

A knife IS a semiautomatic weapon!

A knife can be thrust as fast as you can move your hand, a semiauto firearm can be fired as fast as you can move your finger. No difference. When a knife is used to murder there is NO report as there is when a firearm is used, ask OJ Simpson how nice that is.

Every shooting there is a warning to everyone within the sound range of the firearm discharged. So a firearm has an integrated alarm system.

The semiautomatic 9mm handgun used by this murderer had no more than 20 rounds in its magazine. A knifer has NO limit on the number of times he/she can stab people.

Violent people will find a weapon to harm others, it's best to identify violent people and restrict their access to all weapons and provide defensive tools to school employees.

If that teacher would have been armed, he could have dropped the kid before he got a shot off.

There are a lot of "ifs", like if the teacher had a bullet resistant vest, if the teacher had simply turned so the shooter only had his side to shoot at he may have missed and if he had hit the teachers arm may have absorbed the bullet, if he had turned the shooter may have missed the teacher 7 in 10 rounds at 10 feet miss their target, if the teacher had been armed he probably would not have shot the student anyway, if the pistol used had been a revolver the outcome would have been the same you can shoot a wheel gun as fast as a semiauto while the capacity is smaller, if mom and dad of the shooter had secured the pistol used this may not have happened, if the Government incarcerated criminals/mentally ill many of these shootings would not occur.

Interesting how when a gun isn't used in a killing the title is "teacher slain" and the event called a murder. And even thou the MA killing was a race based killing, the 14 year old is black and the teacher white, President Obama isn't claiming the boy could be his son like he did with Trayvon Martin. Our President is a joke.

Yes, the fact that it was a semi-automatic handgun makes the crime so much more heinous that if he'd used a shotgun or rifle or baseball bat. The blood is squarely on the hands of the shooter. no one else.

No. With another type of weapon, the shooter would have been more likely to have been disarmed or noticed before entering the school.

The US has the highest rate of gun deaths of any developed country. It also has the laxest gun control laws.

This is not a coincidence.

You posted: "With another type of weapon, the shooter would have been". Your bias is soo obvious, your phrase should have been: "the killer would have been".

You see in your mind there is but 1 type of killer that is one who uses a gun.

You Posted: "With another type of weapon the shooter would have been more likely to have been disarmed or noticed before entering the school."

Explain why a different type of weapon would be more likely to be noticed? The killer in Mass. used a box cutter, small easy to conceal. ALSO a box cutter might be in a school to be used by maintenace staff. So in some cases the weapon is already in a school waiting to be used.

Look around a school and count the number of weapons available.

Heck, when I was in HS a student sharpened a hacksaw blade into a knife and stabbed me in the arm. It's very difficult to eliminate all weapons from anywhere. And ya knives are used in multiple victim crimes, like in Texas one was killed and 3 stabbed.

OJ Simpson stabbed 2 dead, Oh that's right he was aquitted of that crime. If you trust him I have a rusty bridge for ya.

What new gun laws do you suggest be enacted?
