Head of state commission investigating the Parkland shooting, Sheriff Gualtieri of Pinellas County, is quoted by NYT reporter as saying:

"If he had somebody in there with a gun, they could have mitigated this," the sheriff said. "There were opportunities for staff to have intervened if they had been armed."

The murderer had to reload several times and the sheriff notes there were several times when the rifle was empty.

Parkland nationwide tour ends in Newtown, CT, a state with the toughest gun laws in the country.

But in both states licensed concealed carry is illegal in schools. It was that exact location that both mass shootings occurred.

Coincidence, I don’t think so.

Judge unhappy, school district wanted press punished by judge and held in contempt.

Press reported after they were sent a freedom of information request on the School shooter that he wasn’t properly advised by school district when he was disciplined his junior year.

Much of the report was blacked out as confidential.

Newspaper found that if they copied the text and pasted it, the redacted portion was revealed. Lol.

So they published it.

Supreme Court previously ruled not presses job to protect confidential information.

Deficiencies in school door and hardware design contributed to death toll. He killed students who were in locked classrooms without entering.

911 calls went to two different 911 call centers. Delaying response.

Shooter used 5 round magazines. Many opportunities for armed teachers to have ended his shooting spree while he was empty.

Plenty of incompetence, to go around. I thought that they conducted "lock down" drills. If so, how did the door lock issue not get discovered, before then?
And you stated, there were plenty of opportunities, for him to have been stopped, either by armed teachers, or non-cowardly LEO. JMHO
