Mass killings and the dozens that are prevented every week by teachers, students, school administrators and police are becoming “routine” news.
We have become used to school shootings: the reporting is routine, the response is routine, the political verbiage is routine.
SCHOOL SHOOTINGS ARE NOT ROUTINE!
While the rest of the world argues about gun control, we need to look for an immediate solution to prevent loss of future lives.
The question is, if you were in that Oregon classroom, what would you have done?
The conceal carry on campus issue is not getting resolved anytime soon. We need a real, immediate solution to help our kids and faculty.
There you are – no gun, no way out. Just you, 18 of your classmates and one deranged and broken piece of human garbage.
In the Oregon massacre, the murderer went into the college classroom and calmly announced to each class member, “I’m going to ask you a question, then I am going to kill you.”
Look, you don’t need to be a 10th degree black belt to figure out what he’s going to do next and you do not have a rational discussion with someone who has announced they are going to kill you!!
In a class of at least 19 people, they were told to stand still and let the gunman shoot them. And they did!!!
One by one the students stood up and were executed and to be honest…it’s not their fault.
It’s our fault.
We have raised a nation of sheep who have been taught that all violence is bad or that all they need is a gun for self defense.
We are a nation that has forgotten HOW FIGHT TO FIGHT BACK.
We talk a good game, but when the rubber hit’s the road…we are sheep.
It took the action of Chris Minz, an Army veteran who was in another classroom, to intervene. And while he was taking on the killer, none of the other students stepped in to help.
Celebrating his son’s sixth birthday, Mintz went to class that day never imagining what he was about to encounter. According to reports, Mintz blocked the doorway in an attempt to protect his classmates. Mintz’s aunt, Wanda Mintz, told CBS that the former military veteran was shot three times while blocking the doorway, and another two times as he called out for his son.
Mintz was fortunate enough to survive, but spent the night in surgery. “His vital signs are okay. He’s going to have to learn to walk again but he has his life and that’s more than so many other people did,” Ariana Earnhardt, Mintz’ cousin, said.
Mintz was shot a total of seven times, including in the back, abdomen and hands, and also suffered two broken legs.
I’m appalled for the human race.
While another human being is getting riddled with bullets to save your life you do nothing as he cries out for his only son.
Why didn’t 19 people rush this bum?
Ants and bees may not be as strong as another animal, but ants and bees can kill large water buffalo and similar large animals. Swarming works people—GROW A PAIR.
How can you just watch as the gunman shoots your classmate?
How do you think it is going to be different for you?
Will he change his mind?
Will the gun jam?
Will he run out of ammo?
Are you going to stand there and let him shoot you!?!
You have nothing to lose, and everything to gain if you fightback. I have students that have been shot and survived to eliminate the shooter.
Thousands of other veterans, police officers have survived shootings, many to eliminate the threat.
Ten people were killed on the campus of Umpqua Community College. It could have been ZERO if just a few people decided to fight back.
Remember the heroes of flight 93?
Shoot if you can, fight if you must.
