The Parkland shooter’s rifle jammed. He had 150 rounds left and, without the jam, could have inflicted more deaths. Was the jam the result of changing magazines so often? And you ignore the fact that 10-round magazines may have minimized, to some extent, the damage that was done.

If he’d carried two pistols the jam wouldn’t have mattered.

You ignore the real damage done to school children by constant active shooter drills.

I don’t. We should end active shooter drills. The mathematics shows pretty clearly that mass shootings and school shootings are not on the rise, and the only reason we have these silly drills is because parents, administrators, and politicians are spending too much time on their cell phones absorbing media driven anxiety.

Mass shootings are a problem in America.

They actually aren’t. That’s the wild thing about the whole dialogue.
