I will not run away
« on: December 14, 2012, 12:51:18 pm »
Happened again. Massacre in school, as I'm hearing it right now, a whole class of kindergarteners is dead, along with 8 adults. On the heels of the Clakamas mall shooting.

 Kindergateners. This is cowardice of the highest order. My heart is broken for the families stripped of their greatest hope, their children.

 I have made a decision that IF I'm ever in a situation like this, I'm not running away. I'm running to. If this is the "new world" then all of us men need to step up and protect our families and kids - ALL families and kids, not just our own. If men nationwide step up and say "enough" at least, as a society, we're finding a way to combat this senseless violence. I'm not special, there are millions of us. We need to understand the power we have together. it starts with "I will not run away". Steve

Unfortunately with the mindset today (promoted by the publik skool system) running to it we become the bad guys and the real bad guys become the victims.
Come to think of it the actual bad guys are the ones turning our kids minds to mush.
Its a shame what happened today but the media wackos have alreadyturned it into political fodder, calling the need for more gun control.
To me, gun control is never having to say, "I missed you".

I cannot wait to hear the lame a** excuse for why this fool thought he had to shoot 4 and 5 year old children.
The current society propagated by liberals has created monsters like this. When I was in school we never heard of stuff like this happening because IT DIDN'T HAPPEN. These kids did nothing to deserve this kind of punishment.
I hope this guy burns in hell for this. I just wish we could identify idiots like this ahead of time so we could exterminate them before they mature. Allowing teachers and staff to be armed would surely do more good than stripping the law abiding american citizen of their 2nd amendment rights.

Very Very Sad! I have owned guns all my life and have never shot anyone. This is a very strong example of what happens when a gunman shows up and starts shooting. When seconds count the Police are only minutes away. Our founders solved this problem many years ago.

Very sad day.  Thank God I live in Texas where, if I run into the fight, and I'm righteous, I'm likely legally ok.  Frankly, I can live with getting legally screwed if I saved a life.  I don't think I can live with feeling that lives were lost because I was hiding under a table.

We allow Brinks drivers protecting cash to carry guns.  But we pen up our most prized commodity into "gun free" zones and then pull the teeth of the few sheep dogs protecting them. 

Gun control?  Arm and train teachers.

After the Virginia campus shootings several years ago our school district did an incredible thing, they got rid of the school resource officers because they said they couldn't justify the expense. I would rethink that idea again if I were them. This kind of thing is happening WAY too often.

Amen to all. I heard "Mr." Obama speaking today and calling for action on this and I'm thinking "BOHICA". One armed adult could have stopped that.

Steve,  I adopted that policy probably 25+ years ago.  If I perceive potential problems in parking lots, malls, public events, etc., I simply position myself between the potential perps and my family and start walking directly toward them.  I also bulldoze myself over these baggy pants maggots in the malls.  I simply refuse to be intimidated by the likes of these punks.  I have had my ass kicked a couple of times.  But I have busted more heads than the whuppings I received.

The way I see it, it would be a shame to have a family member or innocent people injured.  It would be a tragedy if you didn't die trying to prevent it.

My heart is broken for all those families and their loss. Praying that God will provide strength and comfort to them. I'm also angry at how the libs are going to grandstand this for their gun control agenda.

I'm in Steve. I will run to, not away, if there is a chance I can save a life. My Christmas present from my wife this year is a concealed carry class and carry permit. I am also looking into some additional training above what is required.

I'm so sickened by the thought of the cowardice of this 'person' that I can't even put it to words.
My heart goes out to the families of the victims.

I wholeheartedly agree.  I'm going to use the Brinks example when some anti gun starts flapping their mouth.
My son just showed me a post on Reddit of a school outing in Israel.  There's a parent following behind with a rifle slung over her shoulder.   That's how to do it!    (sorry, I don't know how to link)

I'm a farmer/rancher.  When a bear gets one of my calves I get rid of the problem before he does it again and I kick myself for not tending to the problem before it was a problem.
I guess what I'm trying to say is that the world is full of wolves and sheep.  I'll do anything I can to protect my beloved sheep from the wolves that lurk behind every bush.  I just wish the Gov. and do-gooders would let me do my job.
I wish someone could have protected these little lambs before this awful wolf got ahold of them!

Absolutely, Connie1.  There are a ton of sheep in the world, and a lot more wolves than sheep dogs.  We need more sheep dogs.  I hope I never had to deal with a wolf, but if I do, I'll sure give it my best.
