On Wednesday 27 September, a school therapist named Molly Hudgens noticed a 14 year old student seemed agitated. He asked if anything happened, if he had a gun (because this is the kind of questions that are now made in schools States States) and the guy admitted he had a Taurus Millennium .45 in his pants. in the next 45 minutes, Molly managed to get was not going to shoot students – only teachers and then to the police and finally, miraculously, to hand over the gun.
He admitted that he had only spoken to her because I knew it would help him not to.
County Sheriff Mike Breedlove, the widely praised:
“She alone saved the lives of many people (…) is a very brave person to have been alone for all that time with that boy. He did something that even the most experienced members of the police would. “
And do not you think that a problem? In the debate on gun ownership there is always someone who believes that these situations would be avoided if everyone had one rather than a few, but so far, easy access to objects whose sole function it is to destroy has caused much more damage than protection . And if that distinction is something they do not understand or the same police forces, we ended with a massacre after another .
Molly Hudgens is considered a hero by his community , and it seems to me an excellent example for his nation. If not for his character, which students described as “motherly and welcoming , ” and his experience preparing for such cases, the situation could have ended up in another terrible tragedy.
The boy is in custody while authorities decide what to do with it.
