    If we are thinking about the FBI I believe it was who did not follow up on the warnings, yup.

    It does seem they missed a chance to prevent this. What do you think they should have done?

    How many similar warnings do they get a year?

    Depending on the specifics of the tbreat, that was made known to them; they quite possibly could have recommended increased security measures for the school.

    The police already understand that their reputation is in the toilet and want to do anything they can to prevent a repeat occurrence.

    A second Cruz that fell through the cracks again would make a strong case that the police don't do their jobs. They can't afford another black eye.

    Someone who makes threats like this should be held over in a psychiatric ward pending an evaluation. This is one of the things the government could change in the law that could prevent these things from happening

    Yes. But, Democrats and the ACLU will not let that happen, not without legal harassment and massive expenses; a big chunk of the public will not support doing the right thing.

    Nobody knows exactly how many AR-15s or AR-15 owners there out there, but I've seen estimates ranging from 5 to 15 million of those weapons currently in circulation in the US. Consider also that there are quite a few other weapons that are semi-automatic and can fire a bunch of bullets in a very short time, both rifles and handguns. Right now the Supreme Court is leaving it up to the states to decide for themselves what's legal and what isn't, which maybe is the best way to go for now. Would they (SCOTUS) rule against a federal ban on AR-15s and the like? Don't know, but I don't think such a ban would make it through Congress or signed by this President.

    Perhaps true on both ends. The ACLU may end up defending a gun owner's right not to be held in a psych ward.

    What were his exact threats?

    I would be fine with everyone who makes a threat that they're going to shoot something up or commit murder gets a 30 day stint someplace and loses their right to bear arms for a decade.

    Is that what we're thinking would have been the right thing to do?

    I boycott the local baseball team but I don't go around saying I'm going to shoot this or that up or MURDER anyone.
