[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] I understand that. Just saying. Over half of our school had guns in their car, would have been a very short shooting. They may not have even made it in the school.

I think if someone tried to jump them they'd get shot and that's that. It seemed like the only thing to do was try to talk to them on some level. If you treated them like a human being, even Dylan who snapped his tether at that point.  

I think this might be giving them too much credit. Yes they had guns but they both were jumpy and uncoordinated. Neither knew their way around guns very much and I think hypothetically speaking if enough kids tackled them at the same time they would have gone down quite easily.

That would require much more coordination from the victims than possible though imho

I imagine you'd have to find a group of kids who were in a state of mind to work together to attack them as well. If one person tried they'd probably get shot I assume. If 4 or 5 did... maybe?

They'd end up getting arrested and it would be a very different story.

Maybe I'd surprise myself but if I was in the library that day I'd probably piss myself and play dead. I'd be terrified. I wouldn't think to try to restrain them.
