"You have to pry this gun from my cold dead hands."

If that was him volunteering to lay down and die, I'd accept that offer in a heart-beat! He'll die soon enough... not that it'll matter... some other nutter will come along and take his place, and maybe even be more of a zealot, more insensitive than CH was...

KL... I don't get yer point? Are you saying the police shouldn't have shot him???   Cause taking into consideration the volatile nature of the teenage brain, this young man needed help... And it's unfortunate he didn't get the the help he needed before this... but when he CHOSE to brandish a gun in a classroom full of his fellow kids, he needed to be taken down!

"but no one else was hurt"

That's the most important point...
