school shooting

Apparently in 4 out of 5 school shootings the attacker tells someone about it first:

There are three more videos on their YouTube channel that are more or less the same, and have the message:

Call 1-866-SPEAK-UP to anonymously report a weapon threat at school.

I don’t see eye to eye with pretty much everything the Brady Campaign stands for… banning “assault clips” (LOL), disarmament and all that, but I’ll say that these ads are actually decent (despite the fact they look as if they were made in the early 90s), compared to their usual crap.    I have two questions:

  1. What is your hotline going to do, that calling the police directly will not accomplish?  
  2. Are you prepared to ask proper questions, to make sure you’re not sending SWAT to schools where some kid has a mock gun handled umbrella or made a gun shape with his fingers?

Brady-Campaign-Ban-Assault-ClipsWe’ll see how this goes.  Anyone have any thoughts or other concerns?  This is one group of videos The Brady Campaign could likely keep comments open on, and people wouldn’t tear them a new one.

1) 1911 is flipped horizontally so ejection is on the wrong side
2) The lettering is all backwards too
3) Classy 2nd trigger photoshopped in
4) Must be spring operated because it apparently shoots both complete cartridge
5) The cartridge appears to be 9mm ( 1911’s are obviously .45 )
6) Is that a muzzle blast flame? or a pee stain
7) Not only is the gun shooting COMPLETE cartridges that are 9mm, but its also somehow ejecting what appears to be .38 special

And to summarize the article ( also filled with fail ) the university does not think there is a chance of a shooting happening there, so they are not really prepared for one.  They set up a txt messaging system shortly after the VA Tech incident, but it seems pretty useless as well considering by the time the messages make their way to the students ( in approximately 30 minutes as it says in the article) the threat will likely be over and the casualties already sustained.
