Yeah, larger cities are training for "Mass casualty response" as opposed to individual citizens training in "Save my own ass, instead of leaving me
for the government to clean up" AKA they train to count the dead/treat the survivors NOT
prevent attacks and NOT
to stop attacks before
anyone is killed. As I wrote to you earlier - as I suspect you remember - law enforcement/first responders jobs are to respond to an emergency not
The idiots trying to make this into an anti-gun crusade are as dishonest as they are misguided.
No gun law in the world could've prevented what happened. The only difference would've been the potential for armed temple-goers, who could've
promptly put one or more slugs in the attacker's head/center mass until he went down. If one had been armed with a handgun, great. If one of the
victims had been armed with an AR-15/shotgun/any long gun, the scenario would've changed entirely. Yes, that means Citizens walking around with long
guns and steel plate armor. I get it, but that is the new reality. The world/this country is a very dark place, fraught with danger with
criminals/terrorists/extremists lurking in every State. The old rule book no longer applies: best to throw it out entirely.
Attackers must be put on the defensive. They need to feel fear just walking outside, knowing that every Citizen may (and likely is) armed and that any
hostile or aggressive action whatsoever will be met with a most extreme response. We need to change the paradigm from "Woe is me poor victim" to "What
is my next best move? What is the most tactically sound position? Where are the exits? Where is cover? Where is concealment? How many people are here
right now? Who's supposed to be here? Who looks/is acting out of place?"
In short, we need to erase victimhood and create a culture of Citizens who absolutely refuse to be the victim of some demented criminal or
. Gun control is off the table entirely. We are looking to further rescind existing "controls" on firearms, which will enable more
citizens to carry more/bigger/better weaponry in the name of defense/security. Criminals are going to carry them either way, so the law doesn't matter
in that regard. The only law that's needed is one untying the hands of Citizens.
An executive order would do nicely.
