Apparently no good guy with a gun around when this happened in New Jersey.
New Jersey law makes it hard to be a good guy with a gun.

Tonight, it was wind whistling through the trees, now rain pounding the metal roof.
Had to latch the screen doors, they kept swinging open.
Now's about the time I should light a lantern or an oil lamp, just in case the power fails after nightfall.
It's a proven path to gaining political leverage.

The statist subvert the kids first because they are the most malleable to support the goals of the state. For years after the Bolsheviks took over Russia and it became the Soviet Union, there was an organization that was formed to indoctrinate the young, they are called the Young Pioneers and besides learning the tenets of Marxism, they also were used to spy on the parents and the kids would rat out their parents if they did something that violated the decrees from the local communist party commissar.
Our schools used to teach students about the indoctrination habits of Nazis and Communists. I wonder if they still do. Now too many of our government run schools seem to largely follow their pattern.

According to CBS, a professionally generated tally of march size came in much, much lower.
With celebrities and the entire gun-control movement likely spending millions to make this rally what it was, it's doubtful they'll ever admit how far below expectations the turnout was.

YouTube will ban videos that promote or link to websites selling firearms and accessories, including bump stocks, which allow a semi-automatic rifle to fire faster. Additionally, YouTube said it will prohibit videos with instructions on how to assemble firearms. The video site, owned by Alphabet Inc.’s Google, has faced intense criticism for hosting videos about guns, bombs and other deadly weapons.Enforcement of the new policy is said to kick-in in April.

Can someone tell me why the @NRA is being blamed despite the FBI being warned twice, local police visiting Cruz over 20 times, and there being a police officer who stood idly by while the kill occurred?— Charlie Kirk (@charliekirk11) March 15, 2018

Sometimes their accidents kill others.
Where's the outrage?
Where's the national walkout against texting and driving?
Where's the movement to ban cellphones (or to at least establish an age gateway at 18... or 21)?

An abuse of taxpayer funds, they say.
Some Democrats on Capitol Hill want to crack down on members of Congress who sleep in their offices.
I think what Democrats mean is they want to limit office holders to being people of means who can afford expensive DC housing and other high costs of existing inside the beltway.
They want economic barriers to holding office to fend off potential challengers.
I see nothing wrong with a rep crashing in his/her office especially early in a first term, keeping them close to the business at hand while learning the wider lay of the land.

Nikolas Cruz was a bumbling, incompetent gunman with a cheap AR-15, only 10-round magazines, and maybe some defective ammo.
And it was a jam in Cruz's sub-par rifle that ended the shooting while deputies cowered outside.

Gun control is so vicious and emotional a topic for the Left because of the disdain progressives have for the kind of people who own guns.— Buck Sexton (@BuckSexton) February 22, 2018
It’s cultural tribalism masquerading as urgent social policy
Did any of the Stoneman Douglas students now making regular appearances pitching gun control even see the shooter or his weapon on campus on the day of the shooting?
You are considered a survivor of a ship wreck if the ship sinks and you are rescued. But if a limited part of the ship is damaged in a storm or by an attack, and you are on another part of the ship, are you a survivor of the incident?
How many times are soldiers engaged in battle, but are not wounded or injured. How about the support troops, perhaps at the embattled location, but not directly involved in hostilities? Do we bestow upon them the title of "survivor"?
Was every student on campus at Virginia Tech deemed a survivor of the mass shooting event there in 2007?
Maybe the term survivor is being applied too broadly in post-event reporting of the Stoneman-Douglas shootings. Strikes me, the term survivor is being exploited to elicit emotion and bestow credibility to teenage activists pushing an agenda rather than to accurately describe what role they had, or how close to the threat they were, when the actual violence took place.
I'm also curious. Was it media that first bestowed the survivor title on the young campus activists? Or is that how they pitched themselves before making their first media appearance?
After age 18, a parent no longer has access to a child's medical records, may not know what care they are receiving, or know what meds they are on.
But with age now rising to 21 for firearms purchases in some states, or at some retailers, it's likely parents will still be their buyers, as they now are for 15, 16 or 17 year olds.
Raising the gun purchase age actually obstructs the background check process rather than enhancing it.
