Response to Recursion (Original post)

20. As I pointed out in the other thread, Cho wandered about in a dormitory, not a confined space.

 

Staying on the move makes it more difficult for anyone to isolate the killer.

The school was culpable in that they didn't warn residents quickly enough nor stress the emergency nature. If the school had acted promptly, it might have been a very different story at Virginia Tech. And if he used semi-automatics, that should factor into it, as well because if he needed to reload frequently, there would have been more opportunities for someone to stop him.

Banning assault weapons and high-capacity clips will get my vote. It isn't a 'perfect solution', of course. But since no one possesses that mythical beast, we should do what we can and hope for the best.
