School shootings occurred during the 1994-2004 AWB

Please feel free to double check these simple facts that I gathered to show how ridiculous the call for AWB is. Copy and paste it on your Facebook, blogs, other sites, wherever you can disseminate the information. Anyone with an ounce of logic would be able to see the AWB joke as a solution.

For the remainder of the time after the ban expired, most of the shootings involved none of the so called "assault weapons", including the major ones: Virginia Tech massacre, Red Lake massacre, Amish school shooting, Northern Illinois University Shooting, and Oikos University shooting.

There's another wiki page that shows "spree" killings going back to 1902. The problem isn't guns, the problem is people. Some are just broken and do bad things. It doesn't matter if they have guns or not. As it's been show in China, if they don't have a gun, they'll use knives, poison gas or anything else they can get a hold of to commit their crimes.

People in general, suck.

Nope, I'm bringing that along with torches to the meeting tonight. I hope the rest of the villagers remember theirs.

Some were stopped by armed people.

Responsible gun owners can and do prevent mass shootings from occurring and escalating.

A 1997 high school shooting in Pearl, Miss., was halted by the school's vice principal after he retrieved the Colt .45 he kept in his truck.

A 1998 middle school shooting ended when a man living next door heard gunfire and apprehended the shooter with his shotgun.

A 2002 terrorist attack at an Israeli school was quickly stopped by an armed teacher and a school guard.

A 2002 law school shooting in Grundy, Va., came to an abrupt conclusion when students carrying firearms confronted the shooter.

A 2007 mall shooting in Ogden, Utah, ended when an armed off-duty police officer intervened.

A 2009 workplace shooting in Houston, Texas, was halted by two coworkers who carried concealed handguns.

A 2012 church shooting in Aurora, Colo., was stopped by a member of the congregation carrying a gun.At the recent mall shooting in Portland, Ore., the gunman took his own life minutes after being confronted by a shopper carrying a concealed weapon.
