If he had died at the door everybody else would still be alive.

Here Are The Exact Answers Needed To Immediately Stop Mass Shootings

  • If you have a business where people gather in numbers, be armed, and have armed people ready to answer, stop, and if necessary kill somebody threatening to shoot people.
  • If you own or are responsible for a large business, shopping center, mall, stadium, be sure you have armed, trained security at every point where somebody may enter with the intent to kill people.
  • If you are responsible for any business, organization, church or other place in states where concealed carry is legal, don’t put up a ridiculous no-guns sign. It will only keep out the guns of people who are not there to hurt anybody. Allow people to shoot back if necessary.
  • Unrelentingly press legislators to allow concealed carry in their states or districts.
  • Unrelentingly require armed security and/or allow armed, trained teachers to be available to protect elementary and primary schools.
Comment: Common sense. Think of "soft targets": Churches, schools, etc.


  1. 12/16 American Thinker: Time for Schools to be Gun-free Free

    [F]ormer police detective Mike Snopes believes that gun free zones invite killers.
    "The killer in [Newtown] came armed for bear and couldn't care less about some gun law. The school's anti-gun law prevented any adults working at the school from having access to a firearm. If the school's principal had been armed and trained, she might have saved many lives. Had several people been armed at that school, the shooter, suspect Adam Lanza, would have possibly been stopped at the front door by a hale [sic] of bullets," said the former NYPD detective.
    [...]According to former Arizona Sheriff Richard Mack, "The [Newtown] suspect goes to the principal's office while the announcements are playing, over the PA, to the whole school. Everyone in the school hears shots being fired. Had teachers or school employees been armed, instead of fleeing and allowing the killer to walk around the facility unimpeded, the school staff could have surrounded the madman and ended the attack....

  2. 12/16: Entirely necessary

    Some good thoughts in this article:

    For those of us who choose to own a gun as a tool of self defense, today’s events will make things difficult for awhile. We will be faced with politicians who believe that they can stop such tragedies by banning the tools used by the monsters. A fallacy, yes, but emotion is a difficult force to match with fact. We may also be faced with friends and loved ones who do not understand why we choose to own a device designed for violence.

    I fully expect the anti-gun lobby to exploit this next part for their own ends and means…if that’s you, let me remind you that copyright law does apply to online writings, especially when written for a commercial entity.

    If you cannot flee the monster, then it must be destroyed. That means bringing violence onto it, with all the strength and resolve you can muster.

    Some would ask how that makes us any different from the monster itself. It’s simple. We stop when the monster stops, and we only use violence as the final option, when all other options are no longer available to us. “We shoot to stop the threat.” I’ve uttered those words in front of more students than I can accurately remember. That is what differentiates us. We don’t look for violence, but we can bring it to bear when we have no other choice.

    We aren’t monsters because we carry a gun. We carry a gun because we realize that today could be the day when we meet a monster.

  3. 12/16: After school massacre, parents' divide deepens on gun control

    Basically my view:

    Roberts, the coordinator for the Massachusetts chapter of Second Amendment Sisters, a nonprofit self-defense advocacy group for women, says gun-free zones like schools and hospitals can become “soft targets” that attract people looking to wreak havoc and destruction. She believes that if Lanza had known that someone on Sandy Hook Elementary’s school grounds had a gun to defend students, he probably would have picked a different place to attack.

  4. More: GOP lawmaker wishes Sandy Hook principal was armed with assault rifle

    Comment: I'm not sure what an M-4 is so I am not owning that aspect of the quote. But here is the view:

    Rep. Louie Gohmert, a Republican from Texas, says he wishes Dawn Hochsprung, the principal of the Sandy Hook Elementary School, was armed with an M-4 assault rifle when she confronted Adam Lanza, the shooter who killed 20 children.

    “I wish to God she had an M-4 in her office locked up so when she heard gunfire she pulls it out and she didn’t have to lunge heroically with nothing in her hands but she takes him out, takes his head off before he can kill those precious kids,” Gohmert said in an interview on “Fox News Sunday.”

  5. More: County Police Chief Recommends Arming School Personnel

    St. Louis County Police Chief Tim Fitch says it is time to talk about arming civilian school personnel following Friday’s massacre in Newtown, Connecticut, comparing it to arming airline pilots after September 11, 2001.

    “I see it no differently,” he said. “Pilots have been armed now for many many years, we’ve not had another hijacking and the issue is, for the bad guy, he doesn’t know which airplane he’s getting on, if the pilot is armed or not.”

    Fitch said the killing will not be stopped by legislation or laws. “If there’s somebody that’s really hellbent on doing something like this, they’re not going to care what the law is.”

  6. NRA: Text of NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre’s Speech (12/21/12):

    Much to agree with in this:

    Politicians pass laws for Gun-Free School Zones. They issue press releases braggingabout them. They post signs advertising them.

    And in so doing, they tell every insane killer in America that schools are theirsafest place to inflict maximum mayhem with minimum risk.

    How have our nation’s priorities gotten so far out of order? Think about it. We care about our money, so we protect our banks with armed guards. American airports, office buildings, power plants, courthouses — even sports stadiums — are all protected by armed security.

    We care about the President, so we protect him with armed Secret Service agents. Members of Congress work in offices surrounded by armed Capitol Police officers.

    Yet when it comes to the most beloved, innocent and vulnerable members of the American family — our children — we as a society leave them utterly defenseless, and the monsters and predators of this world know it and exploit it. That must change now!

    The truth is that our society is populated by an unknown number of genuine monsters — people so deranged, so evil, so possessed by voices and driven by demons that no sane person can possibly ever comprehend them. They walk among us every day. And does anybody really believe that the next Adam Lanza isn’t planning his attack on a school he’s already identified at this very moment?


    The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. Would you rather have your 911 call bring a good guy with a gun from a mile away … or a minute away?
