You knew it was just a matter of time. The first horse is out of the gate, the rest are sure to follow.
Armed security is a good idea.
100M negligent for a survivor who listened to it on an intercom???
Punitive damages,.. the amount has to be enough that the guilty cannot simply 'pay the bill' and walk off un-bothered by the infraction.
So, it's the schools fault the shooting happened????:grin2:
There is an inherent liability there. Same as if there had been a fire and fire extinguishers were not allowed on premises.
Nobody would blame the state for starting the fire.
When a nut goes on a shooting spree there is only two common things that will stop it. TWO things, simple things. That's it. 1- Somebody else has a gun and shoots or apprehends them. 2- The nut volunteers to stop shooting. The latter is often suicide, and also often after being confronted with point 1.
The immediate situation is really no more complicated than that.
I understand there are a myriad of other somewhat related issues worthy of discussion.
The lawsuit then should be directed to Bill Clinton and Janet Reno.
Good approach Tool... lessee if it will catch on... :)
Did armed guards stop the Columbine or Virginia Tech shootings?
Turning schools, shopping malls, libraries, movie theaters, etc. into armed camps is probably the most ridiculous proposal I have ever heard from so called adults.
