We said it before- Disarmed Civilians in Gun-Free Zones get Killed

March 23, 2017

We saw another muslim terrorist attack yesterday.  Disarmed civilians in so called gun-free zones got killed..again.  This isn’t a subtle trend.  This is as close to an “in your face” slap as an alert person can receive.  Unfortunately, too many of us look the other way.  Here are a few of my colleagues who don’t.

Today, my friend David Cole wrote about crowd-sourcing terrorism.  We might hear US politicians trade talking points about the latest attack by muslims.  These politicians will propose another layer of security in our already unwieldy government.  These politicians refuse to recognize that a centralized defense will never succeed against a decentralized threat.  Then again, there is no political profit for the politician if he proposes a dispersed solution.  The politician does what is good for him rather than what is good for us.

A few days ago, my friend Greg Hopkins talked about protecting ourselves and our families while we are away from high-value targets like schools, churches and hospitals.  For example, we are likely to have our family with us when we’re out on the street, at a store, or at a restaurant.  We can have the maximum legal protection allowed in those places.  In most states today, that legal protection can easily be a handgun.

A few years ago, I described how terrorism changed over time.  Both the intended target and the weapons evolved.   So has our response.  People like you save lives every month.

I want us to pull our heads out of our media and take control of our own safety.  I suspect that won’t happen until their is an app for that.

    “A centralized defense will NEVER stop a decentralized attack.” SO much wisdom here !

    “I suspect that won’t happen until their is an app for that.” which leads me to believe people will never own their SELF defense. Its too much work. Only those who have a genetic predisposition to put themselves in harms way will tend to the rest of the sheep. Sad, but true.

    “centralized defense will never succeed against a decentralized threat.”

    A defenseless citizenry is easily terrorized. An armed citizenry is empowered to live with the strong, healthy mindset of being ready to fight back. It is lost in the discussion, that it takes two factors in being terrorized. First is the threat of violence. Second is the government mandate to be DEFENSELESS to that violence!

    I would, from here forward, EMPHASIZE the FACT that politicians who are disarming, limiting firearms, limiting magazine capacities, and mandating “GUN FREE ZONES”, creating helpless, defenseless “VICTIMS TO TERROR IN WAITING” – are COMPLICIT in terror, and are RESPONSIBLE for forcibly creating, by LAW, A SOCIETY VULNERABLE TO TERROR!
