I had thought that by now; 4 days after 19 children, two teachers were killed and

17 more were wounded by a weapon designed as a prototype for the Vietnam War I would be able to put together a coherant post.

Sorry, I got nothin'.

I've been at this for 40 years and at it in earnest since December 14, 2012. I simply can't comprehend the clusterfuck that unfolded in Uvalde.

I've pieced together the following from eye witnesses, law enforcement and dependable reporting:

trained police (19 of them) were on the scene for at least 40 minutes while the shooter had free run of four classrooms.

teachers told students to be quiet yet police on the scene ran down the halls yelling, 'If you need help call out!' One forth grade girl did and was shot by the 'active shooter' they were hiding from.

while the police (19 of them) milled around afraid to go in a mother broke through the police line, jumped the fence and got her two children out of the school.

EVERY SINGLE THING WE WERE TOLD IN THE FIRST PRESS CONFERENCE WAS A BALD FACED LIE.

The 'Good Guys With Guns' didn't protect those children. Not here and not at dozens of other school shootings.

Would any of the defenders of guns like to come forth and tell me how more guns are going to stop this? Any of you I've 'discussed' this with in the past? You know who your are. The defenders of guns in every situation. The heros and video game wannabes? The ones who see this happen and respond to our calls for change saying, 'Good luck with that' or 'The current Supreme Court will decide the next case in the RIGHT way?

Anybody?

1. The good guy with a gun farce has been laid bare

There is no John Rambo, Dirty Harry, John Wayne, Shaft, Paul Kersey.
Perhaps that is part of the problem. Watching actors blow away their enemies in a make believe world and thinking, yes real life is just like that.
Instead the good guys with guns here were too scared themselves to confront a killer with an AR 15. The good guy with a gun was killed in Buffalo. The good guy with a gun at Parkland ran away.

5. This whole awful scenario is an unmitigated clusterfuck of the first order.

My heart screams at the news that maybe some of those dead children could have been saved, if only the police force had acted appropriately at the proper time.
