Deer Creek: Damage Done?

Troubling news from CO. On Tuesday, a gunman wounded two students at the Deer Creek Middle School. Thankfully, the mentally unstable attacker—32-year-old Deer Park grad Bruco Strong Eagle Eastwood—wasn’t a trained shooter using an automatic weapon. Eastwood carried a bolt-action 30-06; a weapon that can fire, at its absolute limit in ideal circumstances, some ten rounds per minute. The perp was subdued by an emotionally fragile and slender teacher-turned-tackler named David Benke. Judging from this clip, Benke was no stranger to firearms. And a good thing too. Although Michael Moore’s Bowling for Columbine suggested that the NRA (National Rifle Association) would show up at any gun-related school tragedy to defend the Second Amendment, they haven’t. Obvious takeaway lessons learned from this near tragedy: 1) intervention isn’t just for televised drug addicts; anyone who hears voices in his head shouldn’t be left to his own devices 2) children should be taught to run from anyone carrying an exposed rifle and 3) schools need Terminators on constant patrol.
