“"We were able to put an AR-15 rifle and safe in all of our schools in the county," Harwood said. "We've also got breaching tools to go into those safes. We've got extra magazines with ammo in those safes."”
I guess nobody thought about the possibility the guns might attract active shooters? Did they not hear that “suicide by cop” is a real thing and experienced by police forces virtually everywhere? Guns in schools is bait for more active shooters.
11% of all officer-involved shootings are suicide by cop events.
“Suicide by cop accounted for 11% (n=46) of all officer-involved shootings and 13% of all officer-involved justifiable homicides. Ages of suicidal individuals ranged from 18 to 54 years; 98% were male. Forty-eight percent of weapons possessed by suicidal individuals were firearms, 17% replica firearms. The median time from arrival of officers at the scene to the time of the shooting was 15 minutes with 70% of shootings occurring within 30 minutes of arrival of officers. Thirty-nine percent of cases involved domestic violence. Fifty-four percent of suicidal individuals sustained fatal gunshot wounds. All deaths were classified by the coroner as homicides, as opposed to suicides.”
Oh well. Time will tell if we start seeing suicidal gun nuts head to schools in North Carolina to get their rage on before somebody puts them out of their misery.
Maybe one day they will figure out another way is just outlawing war weapons.
