Armed Maggedon…


A mass shooting, with the intention of killing multiple persons, is not a domestic dispute. It is not an armed robbery. It is not a stolen car. It is not a rape. It is not vandalism. It is not a kidnapping. And it is no place for an amateur marksman.

A mass shooting, with the intention of killing multiple persons, is a sudden and unexpected battle of war-like proportions, with all the symptoms and consequences of a battle in war, but without the pretense of it. There is simply the sudden and unexpected battle, the chaos, the children, women, and men, and the death and carnage in the wake.

No amount of training can or will prepare an armed teacher, security guard, or designated employe, who is only peripherally responsible for protecting the lives of those people in such a battle, for the shock and surprise that comes with a sudden and unexpected battle in a war that did not previously exist.

  1. People like Trump that think that armed security will save them in these instances are deluded. The initiator always has a marked advantage. Three swat members were shot today. Nobody carries more weapons than gun shop employees. You would be surprised how many gun shops get robbed. Because the perp is on offense, everyone else is reactive and that takes more time.

    • Perfect, Robert. Very true. Not so surprisingly, you were the first person I thought of when I saw this today. As heinus as the crime was, I hold the president’s respond in greater contempt…
