Taft school shooting: Unarmed teacher talked 16-year-old shooter into dropping weapon
A 16-YEAR-old pupil at Taft High School in Taft, San Joaquin Valley, California has been shot by a fellow student. The shooter, armed with a 12-gage shotgun, aimed at another student but missed. The shgooter had lots of bullets.
An unarmed teacher talked him into handing down his weapon. The teacher suffered a pellet wound to his head but is fine.
Wayne LaPierre, Executive VePee of the National Rifle Association, has yet to comment.

Some members of the NRA are incandescent with rage that the shooter was such a crap shot and armed with a weapon that wold prove useless in the likely event of invasion by Iran or Mars…
