Nevada Middle School Shooting

Earlier today a Nevada middle school student open fired on school grounds, killing himself and a teacher. Two other students were also critically injured in the event. Police have reported that one is still in critical while the other student is now deemed in fair condition. Police have not released the names of anyone involved in the case, likely due to privacy concerns. However, there were around 30 eye witnesses, so we do know most of what happened.

Details are still rolling in and police have yet to release the student’s name. We do know that at 7:15 a.m. local time, a boy 13-14 years old was walking across the school’s basketball court, dressed in a Sparks Middle School uniform. The student suddenly pulled out his gun and began firing. Students were taken by surprise by the attack, which didn’t seem triggered by anything. It’s more likely that it was a planned event. It’s unclear exactly what sparked the event and police say that they have yet to determine the motive.

8th grade math teacher Michael Landsberry, former Marine and a member of the Nevada Air National Guard, attempted to defuse the situation and calm the shooter. Instead, he was shot and killed. It’s likely that that bought the needed time for students to take cover because only 2 others were shot, neither fatally. “In my estimation, he is a hero,” said Tim Robinson, deputy chief of the Sparks police.

Chanda Landsberry, wife of the deceased math teacher, told local news that she wasn’t surprised at all to hear her husband died saving other students. “To hear he was trying to protect those kids doesn’t surprise me at all,” she told the newspaper. “He could have ducked and hid, but he didn’t. That’s not who he is”

The shooter was also killed in the attack and police used the word “neutralized” to refer to his death. However, reports and police conversation point to the shooter killing himself, rather than police shooting him.

In a statement by the ever popular Harry Reid, he said, “No words of condolence could possibly ease the pain, but I hope it is some small comfort that Nevada mourns with them.”

UPDATE: The shooter’s name still hasn’t been released, but police have said that he was a 12 year old student who was responding to being bullied at school. The shooter cornered a bunch of his fellow students, wielding his his Ruger 9mm. He then began asking them “Why are you people making fun of me? Why are you laughing at me?”

Though the scene looks haunting, students have reported that he was actually a really nice, but caved emotionally to being bullied, then brought a gun to take his bullies out. Student Amaya Newton, told CNN the shooter was “a really nice kid” who “would make you smile when you were having bad day.” “I believe it was because I saw him getting bullied a couple of times and I think he took out his bullying,” she said.

After the attacks, the shooter took his own life with the gun. Police are also in contact with his parents, who face probable charges for leaving the gun where their son could commit this crime.

    To add prosecution of the parents for the son’s murderous actions to this would be beyond the pale… certainly nothing like this is ever done by parents purposely. I am sure the parents and the school system will have enough to contend with in Civil Court.

    It should be by now be self-evident that the regime is making the schools and other gathering places vulnerable on purpose. In spite of all the rhetoric to the contrary, logic and all the recent facts support this. Clearly, the regime is only too happy to sacrifice a few children, or even more than a few, in order to promote their political agenda of disarming the populace, for that is the only sure way of ascertaining full control. By making schools defenseless, the regime is purposefully inviting the murders, just like it did with the “Fast and Furious.” As long as the media keeps blaming the “armed anarchists,” the regime is making progress in enslaving the population. A few children at a time, but progress nevertheless…

    And, yes, I am aware that the NSA and several other agencies are following and recording this post.
