    A 17-year-old gunman is dead following an exchange with an armed School Resource Officer (SRO) at Great Mills High School in Maryland on Tuesday morning. Two students were injured.

    The gunman opened fire on a 16-year-old female student before class in a central hallway, hitting a male classmate, before the (SRO) exchanged fire with the shooter who was armed with a handgun, disabling him and ending the incident. The SRO was not injured in the exchange which began at 7:45 a.m.

    The female student is in critical but stable condition at a trauma facility, while her male classmate is in stable condition. They were taken to separate hospitals in D.C. where the shooter died at 10:41 a.m.

    The ATF and FBI are investigating the incident which came just days after threats were made on Snapchat against the school. The sheriff’s department reportedly investigated the threat but did not determine it to be authentic.

    “This is what we train for, this is what we prepare for,” said Sheriff Tim Cameron.

    Quick thinking student Jonathan Freese called CNN from his cell phone during lockdown in math class, telling the network “I’m still a little shaken up.”

    Freese said the school had held drills a couple of times for this kind of situation.

    “I didn’t really expect for this to happen. I do always feel safe, though, because they always have police at the school,” he said. –CNN

    School buses were used to transport students to a neighboring school to be reunited with their parents.

    The shooting comes a week after Great Mills High School students staged a walk-out to protest gun violence in the wake of the February 14 school shooting in Parkland, Florida which was not stopped by the school’s resource officer, Scot Peterson.

    President Trump has repeatedly called for arming teachers following the Parkland incident as a means to safeguard students against future mass shootings.

      1. And that is how it is supposed to work. Unlike the inactions by the woosey Broward County sheriff’s department. Disgraceful there.

        • A wacko with a handgun trying to shoot a girl is not the same as a wacko with an AR trying to rack up a high body count.

        • This story will be largely ignored by the presstitute media because it depicts a good guy with a gun taking out the bad guy with a gun.

          It doesn’t fit the liberal mantra that the problem is too many guns and what is needed are more gun laws and banning hi-capacity magazines and evil “assault rifles”.

          Nothing will be mentioned that had that SRO not been onsite, there might well have been a slaughter of more innocent kids.

          But you can’t expect stupid liberals to think logically.

          Bombshell! Obama Forced the FBI to Delete 500,000 Fugitives from Background Check System for Gun Purchases!

          “When Democrats blame Republicans and the NRA for criminal gun deaths, it’s important to remember that it’s the Democrats who continually weaken our law enforcement tools.”

          “This past week during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, FBI Deputy Director David Bowdich unveiled some very disturbing information about a HUGE hole in the database created by the Obama/Lynch Justice Department.”

          Dianne Feinstein: “It’s my understanding that under federal law fugitives cannot legally purchase or possess guns. We’ve heard from local law enforcement that the Justice Department has issued a memo that forced the FBI NICS background check database to drop more than 500,000 names of fugitives with outstanding arrest warrants because it was uncertain whether those fugitives had fled across state lines. Mr. Bowdich, can you describe why this determination was made by the Justice Department?”

          David Bowdich: “Yes, ma’am. That was a decision that was made under the previous administration. It was the Department of Justice’s Office of Legal Counsel that reviewed the law and believed that it needed to be interpreted so that if someone was a fugitive in a state, there had to be indications that they had crossed state lines. Otherwise, they were not known to be a fugitive, under the law, and the way it was interpreted.”

          “The Obama team was hell bent on finding ways to take law abiding citizens firearms, but they were also simultaneously searching for ways to keep guns in the hands of certain criminals? It makes no sense!

          …it’s another example of the Obama administration’s decision to reward criminal behavior and make life in America more dangerous.”

          • KY Mom:

            It makes perfect sense. Most felons are black. Most hard working middle class law abiding citizens are white. Obama and the people behind him would sacrifice a few of their own to disarm and disempower white people. It’s that simple.


            • B from CA,

              I think it is terrible they did this.

              We just keep finding out additional bad policies and decisions (that were kept HIDDEN from the American people.) that Obama made that further weaken and destroy our country.

              We know gun control and then confiscation are important steps in moving toward a Socialist to Communist nation. Just look at Venezuela.

          • One more nail in that cross, from my cold dead hands and im not going alone

        • The Coward County Sheriff would call this school officer a racist terrorist.

      2. Uh, Oh. Another school shooting. The guns are really going to get it now.

        • This was really a domestic violence shooting that happened at a school….. but that doesn’t fit the anti-gun narrative.

          • Thats a good start BUT…. I want to hear about some poor homeowner that shoots and kills a bunch of psyco pig fucks that kick his door in at 3 am for some stupid shit and saves his entire family. Or blows some asshole cops head off for blowing his dog away without cause. Or kills a mans baby in it’s crib with a cuncusion grenade. Or burns a complex full of women and children to death while shooting the ones that try to flee! Or shoot dead a man’s wife and child that came across a doorway while surrounded by megapigs for some stupid shit. Or kill an old man struggling through the snow when ordered by megapigs to do so. Get the point?

            • Yea, kinda gives ya a warm fuzzy feelin dont it,

          • John, everything “fits” the gun narrative these days. Everything. [sarcasm] Just ask the gun-control / anti-gun / pro-gun confiscation group.

        • “the shooter died”… saves some time and tax dollars…

      3. I feel for the RSO. Having to shoot a kid. It will beat the hell out of him even though that is one of the reasons he was there. I hope and pray for the RSO, and the young lady that is fighting for her life.

        This RSO will ask himself two question for a long time. #1 Did I act fast enough to save the young lady. #2 Could I have shot the Male subject in and other place so he could have lived?

        Here is a PRIME example of a Person doing good with a gun, and a Person doing bad with a gun.

        Some Libtard turd will start saying we should ban handguns now, or You can’t have a gun in our house if you have kids in the house. I have two words for them F#$K YOU!!!

        Just be ready for the next call for gun confiscation.


        • “#2 Could I have shot the Male subject in and other place so he could have lived? ”

          I was always taught that you shoot to stop. That means center mass.

          • You are correct.

            You know as well as I do the death of this kid is going to haunt him.

            Top it all off you can bet he will get sued for wrongful death by some S.O.B.

              • Sgt. I have a lot less empathy for that kind of shit. After a while when I quit thinking about it I would sleep just fine after blowing that punk away.

            • BS!!! If you have a personal problem shooting a killing a armed thug shooting up the school, then you got no business being a Cop. Go take a desk job or retire. You are not worthy of a badge or a public pension.

              Those who hesitate are dead meat. Shoot early and shoot often and carry daily. Yeah, I shot and killed somebody decades ago, no big deal, isn’t haunting me at all.

        • The liberals will go after the SRO. They want to ban guns, not have a hero with a gun save the day.

          • Back in JR High school we all made wooden gun racks in wood shop class, and growing up in Wisc, most of the boys were absent from school for a few days when Deer Hunting Season opened up. Guns are our culture and tradition amd thats what the Zio parasites want to destroy. The worlds largest army is the American Hunter. Millions and millions of Deer hunters, are basically snipers with big caliber rifles with scopes. 30-30, 30-06, 7mm, .308, bring it. 600,000 Deer hunters in Wisc alone. Ohio and PA, MI, several millions more.

            Today, these milktoast snow flakes with weak limp wrists can’t even throw a hand grenade to qualify in the Army, they now reduced the qualifications to pass basic training.

            We are screwed with these useless Milineals. So carry daily your Liberty tools to defend yourself. Because YOYO= You’re on your own.

          • Banning has nothing to do with it, John. Banning is not legal. Banning goes around due process. Banning goes around the 2ND Amendment. Banning has become more important than the Rule of Law. Banning is more dangerous. Banning is just another word for confiscation of your property and your rights through “other means.”

        • The RSO should be armed with AR with good optics, CQB setup that way an accurate take down shot,

      4. I live in the WV Panhandle about an hour from DC. Watching the news from MD and DC, they said that the shooter killed himself! Guess they don’t want people to think that someone with a gun can stop a bad guy with a gun.

        With the big gun march from all the brain washed kids this coming weekend coming up I guess that would put a wrench in their protest.

        It won’t be long before some kid gets his iphone taken from him/her for bad grades or some kind of punishment and the little snowflake will call the police and tell them that their parents have a gun in the house and they don’t feel safe.

        I think the snowball just went over the top and is on it’s way down!

        • That is the most common outcome of these shootings. when confronted by police they kill themselves.

          • Yeah right that’s what the cops always say.

            • Well ballistics prove it! …. Oh ya, they NEVER DO BALLISTICS! nevermind.

          • The guns commit suicide? They shoot themselves?

      5. I agree with Sgt. More calls for bans are coming. My biggest concern is how he got the gun. Was it left availablefor him to access? We all like to think that our kids are above this, or that we taught them better. The cold facts are, teenage is a tough time, girls, school stress, bullying and some break down. We need to start keeping our guns secured from anyone intent on using them for ill purposes. I keep every gun I own except my carry gun, locked in a vault. I don’t want some distressed family member getting to them, or for that matter someone stealing them. I have already had one gun used to kill a state trooper years ago.

        • As a kid I had access to my dad’s and grandfathers guns.
          Like every kid I got my ass kicked, my heart broken, and was picked on in school. I never thought to grab a gun to get even, although they were very accessible to me.

          Guns are not the problem. Piss poor upbringing is.

          • Amen.

          • rellik

            I agree. I was small, terribly nearsighted, stuttered, needless to say a target. Pop had guns including a revolver, I had guns (although legally his). Using them against people never crossed my mind.

            • K2,
              I fought with everybody and anybody.
              I probably lost more fights than I won.
              I still have scars.
              I was kicked out of Kindergarten, Sunday school
              and several public school districts. I was not
              allowed to ride school buses, due to fighting.
              I did not like older kids bullying me.

              I had access to a lot of guns.
              It never crossed my mind to shoot up a school.
              The kids today are just not being raised right.
              There are rules.

          • I agree. I grew up using guns. I had guns in my room. I was on the high school shooting team. I never owned a safe until 20 years ago. I just know that what worked when we we young is not working today and I never want one of my guns used by anyone that may be having a bad day, whether one of mine or someone else’s kid.

          • AMEN
            My gear hung on the closet door at my house and my 4 kids never messed with it. They to were told that they would get their asses busted if they did.

          • “R”
            You and I both.

            It built character. Today kids don’t have any character, because you can’t offend them, they all have to get a trophy, so on and so forth. Libtard B.S.


          • Same here, had an M1 carbine hanging on the wall in my bedroom with a stack of mags and 3 cans of ball ammo in the closet, never crossed my mind to take it to the bus driver who constantly bugged me or the lame ass bully punks in my school, they are lucky because i hit everything i shot at

        • Banning is no longer part of the discourse.

          These gun-control / anti-gun groups are doing exactly want they wanted all along — gun confiscation.

          For these people, it’s never been good enough just controlling what somebody does. And it’s never been good enough just taking was somebody else has legally. It’s always been about confiscating what somebody has legally and humiliating the crap out of them while you do it.

          Trump said it best. “Just take the guns and worry about due process later.” Because everybody can afford a good attorney. [heavy sarcasm]. Because this country has become all about “Pay to Play.” Paying your taxes means crap. Being a U.S. Citizen means crap. Being a law-abiding citizen means crap; you will never be compliant enough for these people.

          I don’t know why there is even any discussion about where these gun-control freaks will stop. There is no place they will not go to achieve their ultimate goal.

          • The time for arguments has passed. The time for doing has come.

        • The dem o crats the liars’ are the one’s who are doing all this. Similar to bin laden that muslim barack hussein obama’s lying brother, the lying dems never expose the bodies of the dead. barack hussein is Satan’s SON.

      6. I can hear all the liberals now. “Well, that’s not supposed to happen!! A good guy with a gun saved lives? Naw, can’t be.”

      7. My dad was a cop in the NYPD. He had his gun,black jack and other stuff hanging in the closet. Us kids were told if we touched any of it,we would get a beating. No one ever touched it. Upbringing.

      8. A good read.

        Life Under Communism
        By Charlotte Cushman

        “I am worried because too many people, especially our youth, don’t even have a clue as to what living under a totalitarian regime is like. Here is my story, how I learned about the evils of government domination and became the patriotic freedom-fighter that I am today.

        I am a descendant of immigrants from Yugoslavia. They immigrated to the United States around 1900…”

        “Life under communism was very hard. Oh, how the people suffered! On the farm in Ljubljana, my family got up at 4 AM and worked until 10 PM, and the government took everything…”

        ht tp://

        • Life under any totalitarian system is awful. Vast numbers of people under British rule suffered in terrible poverty. The company town, company store, company home, payment in script kept Americans chained to the company possessing only the clothes on their back.

          Power corrupts an absolute power corrupts absolutely.

          • Communists are particularly dangerous because of their appeal to the misguided masses.

            • Kevin2,

              I agree. It is truly unfortunate that our current public educational system does NOT inform students about the misery living in a totalitarian system.

      9. Thank God for the armed RSO!!!

        The commie media will only play what fits their agenda, don’t expect this to get much air time…

        They have no choice but to outlaw ALL guns before they can enforce their tyranny…

        We all know what happens when that happens……….

        • Vet1,
          I ask, how many Americans would comply with a gun ban?
          I submit, the ones that do, aren’t worth saving.

          • If they would just take a moment and look into history books and see where gun confiscation has happened… they might be scared sh*tless…

      10. Oh, just put more fluoride in the water, and up the kid’s dose of psychotropic drugs. Put a little more mercury in their vaccines, and tell them about the benefits of alternative lifestyles, and why integration and multi-culturalism is so wonderful. Let them watch TV all weekend and get them some beer to come down off whatever pharmaceutical high they’re on. Fill the white kids with guilt and the black kids with rage over slavery; and never forget the Nazies were trying to conquer the world. Stalin was a Russian Nazie or a Communist or you know, like a bad man. Give them lots of useless information, but keep them as ignorant as possible.

        Then duck and cover. When the shooting starts, hide.


        • You nailed it there B from CA!

      11. It may be time to divest yourself of Bitcoin. The bosses have decided it is too much of a threat to their fiat.

        So much of a threat that they are gonna play the kiddie porn card.

        Did they plant the porn themselves? Is it even in a file somewhere attached to the blockchain? Can you take the chance?

        I’m no financial advisor…but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night.

      12. Guns need ammo to be fired. Gasoline engines need gasoline to run. Advocates of gun confiscation need school shootings to get gun confiscation as the law of the land. They take advantage of parents’ natural desires to keep their children from being hurt or killed. Rational thought goes out the window. School shootings are the fuel that drives gun confiscation. We need to do all we can to keep the number of such shootings down! Even if you are sure that your child would never do such things, secure your guns! Your children have friends that might take an unsecured gun.

        • Advocates of gun confiscation need weak minded people on mind altering pharmaceuticals to get gun confiscation as the law of the land.

          There, fixed your statement.

          Why is there no discussion about what causes these people to do these acts of violence, instead of focusing on the tool used to commit them?

        • Oh Brian I hear your words but I truly believe that these mass shootings are being allowed to happen if not completely orchestrated. Never let a crisis go to waste and if you don’t have a crisis make one.

      13. It looks like a prison, from the outside. Particularly, following shootings, it works like a prison, to get on the premises. Socially, once you are inside, it works the same way as a prison — the praetors, facilitators, and a gang dynamic.

        Armed administrators have assumed that it is a shooting gallery, full of savages, yet sane people are all expected to go there, and adjust to that, as though it is perfectly normal.

      14. Good outcome. Only one person dies and he is the one who went looking for trouble and found it. Made certain he don’t do that no more times.

      15. Gun confiscation people secretly love a school shooting. They care nothing about the children who are killed as long as it is not their children. Before those children were born, they would have supported the mother’s right to abort them. Some of them would support abortion up to the moment of birth. Their “concern” for their deaths doesn’t ring true. They will try to exploit the children, one last time, by dragging the grieving parents before television cameras so they can call for gun confiscation. Sickening!

        Crackerjack- They are weak-minded but they are many. Weak-minded people go with whichever way the wind is blowing and favor simple solutions. They switch to whichever side public opinion favors. It is a human issue centering on a failure to instill a respect for human life.
