Apparently, Other Things CAN Stop a "Bad Guy With a Gun"

School shootings are amplified these days in the news, so it's not surprising that this one made the national press:

California sheriff: Youth who shot classmate felt he'd been bullied

Without other comment on the details or merits of the case, I will note only that Mr. LaPierre is apparently wrong. It is not true that the only thing that can stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. In this case, the "bad guy" was stopped by an unarmed teacher and a school counselor - using words. Interesting stuff.
