Westside Middle School?

Posted on the 23 November 2011 by Mikeb302000
The Westside Middle School in Jonesboro, Arkansas was the site of one of those mass shootings.
Of course, an armed citizen probably couldn't have stopped it since the shooters shot "in an ambush style from the woods in camouflaged clothes".
The body count--five people, four female students and a teacher, were killed. Ten people, nine students and one teacher, were injured.
Since the perps were both Juveniles, their maximum sentence was to serve in a Juvenile facility until they were 21. They would have served until only age 18 had federal authorities not added additional confinement for weapons charges!
The people of Jonesboro were outraged that both shooters were released with no further supervision and were legally able to buy firearms!
Although, we can question whether Greg is upset that the shooters would not be deprived of his "gun rights".
After all, you can't have too many guns out there--especially if they fall into the hands of the wrong people!
