Default An Illinois school resource officer stopped a school mass shooting

What the hell is wrong with people these days, this is getting more and more frequent. Lets see how much air times and publicity this story gets, which is probably not much as it does not match the narrative of the left.



An Illinois school resource officer stopped an armed teenager at a high school Wednesday morning, according to the local police chief, who applauded the officer for saving "countless" lives.

When the 19-year-old suspect fired several shots near a gym at Dixon High School, the school resource officer reported the incident to authorities and then confronted the gunman, Dixon police chief Steven Howell said at a news conference.

When confronted, the suspect -- a former student at Dixon High School -- started running away, and the officer pursued him, Howell said. The suspect shot several rounds at the officer, and the officer then returned fire, hitting the gunman, the chief added.

The suspect was taken into custody with what's believed to be non-life-threatening injuries, police said.

No students or staff were injured but the high school and all other schools in the district were placed on lockdown, Dixon City Manager Danny Langloss said in a statement.

Shooter is former senior, recently expelled

He looks a little like that David Hogg guys ginger older brother.

The state of Illinois doesn't allow you to practice your constitutional right to bear arms without the expressed written consent from the state police. Furthermore being under 21 he'd have to get written permission from a parent whose already licensed by the state before he could possess a firearm or ammunition.

Clearly more gun control could have prevented this. A complete and total ban at schools didn't work. 100% registration and a license requirement for even ammunition purchases didn't work but more gun control is still the answer.

If the dumbass kid wore a shirt with "RUSSIA" across the chest he'd be the biggest story of the week.
