School Shooting Ended With Low Casualties Due To Immediate Armed Response

On Saturday, April 23 2016, an 18 year-old coward opened fire with a rifle on students leaving prom at his high school alma mater in Antigo, Wisconsin.

 

Two victims sustained non-life threatening injuries.

 

The media initially ran with the typical articles about how the attacker had been bullied, etc. (his mother told the Associated Press that she hopes the tragedy “shines light on bullying and how deeply it affects people.”), but the national conversation died out pretty quickly, mainly because the attacker only managed to cause the death of one person – himself.

 

The coward didn’t achieve the “high score” he likely desired, or the notoriety these cowards so often crave, thanks to the quick response of a law enforcement officer who was already on scene. The officer engaged the attacker and stopped the threat.

 

This incident proves, just as did the Arapahoe High School shooting in Centennial, Colorado in 2013 and the Madison Jr./Sr. High School shooting in Butler Co., Ohio earlier this year, having an armed presence on the scene when the attack begins can drastically reduce the attacker’s ability to carry out his plans.



 

Not every school district can afford to employ officers at every event. But let’s not let money be a barrier that keeps us from protecting our kids.

    Your headline….It’s DUE to, not do to. Come one.

    Ugh. Are you advocating higher taxes?

    Get your kids out of the government schools. That solves this problem, along with a lot of others. No need to extort more money out of your neighbors!
