Ice cream machine is still on the fritz. Please read what I wish I’d written on the most recent Colorado school shooting.
Rampage shootings end one of two ways – when the shooter decides he’s finished, or a good guy with a gun shows up to force that decision. The Arapahoe shooting lasted 80 seconds, because a good guy with a gun showed up. The shooter was armed not only with a shotgun, but with molotov cocktails. You’ll never hear it in the media, but more people have died at the hands of arsonists than rampage shooters. He tossed one firebomb. He never got to use the others.
