What did the mentally ill do before high-powered assault weapons? "Lizzie Borden took an AK-47 and gave her father 40 whacks. When she saw what she had done, she gave her mother 41"? I wonder how far Lanza would have gotten if he had been wielding an ax? He would have been whacking away at that window and trying to climb through broken shards of glass as someone inside would be dialing 911. By then the other admins and teachers would have been racing inside to lock themselves and the kids into classrooms and closets for lock down. The police arrived in 10 minutes so I suspect that there would have been only one or two victims, if any, before Lanza would have proceeded to the first locked door and swung his ax. And the children would be alive today. But hey, what do I know?
