About that school shooting in Maryland
You know, I'd like to take all those politicians and their allies in all the gun grabber groups, stand them en masse up against a wall and...slather them in the blood of all the victims they have created. After all, they enjoy dancing in the blood of those victims--why not give them a full treatment.
My built-in nasty streak aside, this little graphic once again points out something that our side has been saying for years. You stop a bad guy with a gun by having a good guy with a gun close at hand. This doesn't mean no one will get hurt or killed. The good guy will always be, unfortunately, behind the curve. The bad guy will always control the where and when of a mass shooting. We have to wait for the balloon to go up and then react to the situation. But when you have an armed person on hand, whether they are, as in this case, a police officer, or they're just your average citizen who has decided to take personal responsibility and act as their own first responder, quick reaction in a mass shooting event saves lives.
No amount of angry teenagers on TV will change that fact.
