Evil stormed into the late night theater in Colorado and cut loose. And no sheepdogs were around to stop it. Thus began yet another uncontested killing spree. Predators of the world come in many forms. This one was a former medical student dressed like the joker from Dark Knight, hair dyed red. He popped out through the exit and returned heavily armed with tear gas or OC. Using shotgun, AR, and Glock he killed at least 12 people, wounded many more. While it was chaotic, Holmes stopped to reload and many victims were within easy gun range to return fire. It could have made a big difference. Again we see that development and strict adherence to your concealed carry system can save your life and others'. And yet still I see many TNPrs neglect high percentage carry so they can function in these time critical roles in mass shootings. Maybe it's a theater, a restaurant, a park, a store, a theme park, a library, a concert, the train, or even your home. But you should be technically, mentally, and materially prepared to engage this active shooter. Nevertheless again we see this tragedy twisted by the protectionist as he attempts to mold it into a politically expedient way to register and disarm YOU. No, the answer to these attacks is not more laws, restrictions, and harassment and demonization of the good, law abiding American Gun Owner. If fact they hold the answer...they will be on scene first as they also function as the targets of these rampages. And that answer comes in the form of cold steel and hot lead delivered to the murderer before he can kill more. History will judge such human beings as heroes./////////////////////Some will say intervention in the confusing theater would have caused more problems. In essence then they are siding with the Protectionist mindset, advocating NON-action on the grounds LESS people will get killed. "Don't do anything, let the murderer have his way...he will eventually run out of ammo." This reasoning is flawed as it advocates non-defense but victimization. They are then defending the status quo of a mass murderer. The engagement scenarios are infinite but statistics show intervention with lethal force has stopped such violence. Note that most mass shootings cited ended with a sheepdog making the shot...AS DISCUSSED! Being armed gives you options. Taking the shot gives you life...and maybe those around you too.
