I did a poorly worded equivalent of whoever I stole it from on twitter.

It seems to be a matter of will more than capability.

That new SIG p365 sounds too good to be true. A CCW smaller than a Glock 43 but with a ammo capacity of the 26? How is that possible?

Was the shooter ever committed? Sounds like he's a walking justification for mental health institutions. Sucks that his dad is going to jail, but he probably should have 5150'd his son some number of years ago.

I thought it was required Dad-ing to play your son Van Halen, even the Hagar albums.

It'd be nice to think you could keep this kid locked up forever just because he seems crazy, but on medication, he was probably very capable of living a normal life. It's very hard in mental health to keep people on their meds. Now, on the other hand, requiring more than just his dad's "word" about how he'd keep the guns away from his son would be much more effective. Especially since this man had his ability to purchase guns in the future revoked.

This story ought to scramble some ideological priors:
--"The good guy with a gun does work!"
--"But it was a public official with extensive professional gun training!"
--"But we can't expect SROs to be covering every inch of the school!"
--"Wait a minute, SROs are bad, especially armed ones!"
