(Newser) – The 14-year-old boy who was shot at an Atlanta school today is doing fine and is expected to be released from the hospital tonight, reports the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. A fellow student is in custody, and police think a specific dispute between the two of them led to the shooting. Also of note: Police say an armed school resource officer—of the type the NRA is pushing—disarmed the suspect minutes after the shooting, though he happened to be off-duty at the time, reports AP.
Gun Control: The premise that a woman found in an alley, raped and strangled with her own pantyhose, is morally superior to allowing that same woman to defend her life with a firearm.
