A Shiny Gun For Every Kyle... OR... Do We Have Enough Firearms (Virtual Signaling) Yet? ?

In the leftists continuing effort to never let a crisis go to waste, Little Ms. and Joe Biden move to politicize yet another tragedy.
No! Little Ms. is right! All we need is a law that says NO MASS SHOOTING!
Little Ms. & Biden are not even in the same world as the rest of us.

Let's ignore for a fact that that a deranged animal went into a school and ruined the loves on many people in a small west Texas town. Lets sensationalize the horror of it while ignoring the hard facts of life.

We can start with the fact that are still being discovered, but like the Kyle reference in Little Ms's title, and the rush to judgment that he was a white supremist and "murdered" three "mostly peaceful protestors" it turned out that he was attacked in his efforts to protect property by three felons (including domestic violence and child abusers) that tried to bludgeon and shoot this 17 year old kid.

Or how initially the Buffalo mass shooter was a Fox loving supremist, that turned out to be an eco socialist hated Fox and right wing personality Ben Shapero.

Or as mounted Border Patrol Agents tried to do their job idiots (like Little Ms. and Biden) went off telling us all how they were supremist and there would be consequences.

Enough of the unsubstantiated, irrational, insanity.

It is time to consider the facts. There are crazy violent people out there (as dramatically demonstrated in the Summer of Love) that are more than willing to break all laws and common decency ruin civilization and shatter lives.

It is also time to understand that in an era of radicalized progressives hell bent on sparking that "revolution" so desperately wanted they are willing to turn violent criminals back on the streets the day they are arrested to harm again, turn a blind eye to laws that say you can not intimidate SCOTUS at their homes, and understand that when seconds count, the police (that the left wants to defund, disarm, and diminish) are only minutes away.

Want to actually do something to combat this kind of crazy, and trust me when some wack job walks a school or any soft target rich environment it becomes real combat, then do something about it. What you ask? Ohhhh I don't know but here are a couple ideas off the top of my head to protect schools.

- Take some of those billions of Covid funds given to schools, in many cases largely unspent and waiting to be stolen, and instead of using it to fund CRT issues, maybe harden the schools with security barriers, access control, armed guards.

- Maybe train and equip teachers and unlike Biden's 2nd choice as head of the ATF NOT reject training and arming teachers with previous military and/or police backgrounds.

-Then there are IF you are going to have Red Flag Laws, that I am not crazy about, you actually do something with them and perhaps if you did (I'm looking at you New York) that Buffalo mass event could have been prevented.

-Oh and here is a good one, for the animals that are willing and able to do such horrible things, how about not glamorize them in the media? And when they are not done away with as they were in Uvalde, prosecute them, sentence them, and end them!

Yes, none of this is warm and fuzzy, one of it is even thinkable to many, but like many things that are unacceptable and unthinkable to some out there it is real. Very, very real. It is horrible and there are little neat and tidy solutions to it.

Sometimes when dealing with very ugly problems you have to employ very ugly solutions. This is the way it is in wet work.

As someone who stands in front of a class a few times a week, and has been teaching in universities for a few years, there are some frightening things here to consider.

First I have to say Canada is not immune to this, and the shooting at l'ecole polytechnique that killed 14 women and injured another 10, by an incel is not something that is forgotten. Although I will fully admit I imagine this more as an American problem. I know when we first got together I would not apply to American university positions for this very reason.

A few weeks ago I was made acutely aware how this problem affects students. The first years in one of my classes spoke about the shooter drills they had to do in elementary and high school and how is scarred them. I was shocked we did that here in Canada, but I was very compassionate to their expressed emotions. Interestingly they spoke about how the blame and onus was put on them, that if they were different or introverts there was a distrust placed on them as students, even if such an idea was not even in their minds. They spoke about mental health needs of students and how that was not addressed.

Yesterday and this morning academic Twitter was full of messages of profs who admitted that even here in Canada one of the first things they did in a new classroom was try and figure out escape routes, took a survey of potential hiding places, and escape routes. Many expressed that there were certain rooms they hated teaching in because they were basically sitting ducks should a shooter enter. I have never done this. Immediately I felt like a horrible prof, but I also instantly felt the weight of a responsibility I had not considered. You Sir, know I am not very situationally aware at the best of times, but I realized that I am responsible for those humans in my classroom. It's not just shaping their minds, getting them to understand the world in new contexts, but I am responsible for their safety.

That made me rethink my classroom. I realize that my current lecture hall is the biggest, it is front of both main entrances to the building, and it is nothing but a wall of doors. I thought about the back exists and how we would have to run in front of the main bank of doors, and that there was no place to hide. I need to think about a plan should something happen.

Now before everyone screams Canada is safe! Let me recount something that happened to me when I was a TA. In the first paper a student submitted for the semester, his thoughts were erratic and seemed to be a little dark. I gave lots of comments to improve and suggested perhaps speaking to the accessability office. The next paper scared the shit out of me. It had nothing to do with the assignment, and was about him hearing voices and how he had been listening. The voices were telling him to end this pain and suffering that everyone faced and on New Year's Eve he would make his move. He blamed women for all of the sins of the world, and made amends with his God. I was terrified. I contacted the school, the prof, and everyone I could think of.

The school met with his parents, who removed him from university, and I hope got him some help. Yet, I do not know. That paper was one of the most frightening things I have read, and I know that where ever he is now, he is a potential threat.

Mostly I feel impotent. There is no real way to protect my students, nor myself. As I said to you this morning maybe I need a conceal weapon license, maybe I need tactical training. Regardless of how we all feel or think we have the solutions, there is much to think about not just from the shooter's perspective, but training us educators would be a good first step as well. We are leading your kids...perhaps think about teaching the educators some techniques as well. I am not referring just to how to handle a gun, but how to hide, how to protect, and how to spot a person who is potentially a threat. They spend endless hours teaching us how to be compassionate, to accommodate, how to see signs of mental health distress for depression, but what about those who are going home and cleaning their guns?

You found parts of me I didn’t know existed and in you I found a love I no longer believed was real.

Congress lining their pockets with tens of millions of NRA lobby money ( majority of GOP, a few Dems ) WANT this killing so they can say how much America needs a strong man dictator like Hungry has . Where the GOP, BY THE WAY, ARE HOLDING their C-PAC this week,,,in Hungry. America just isn’t awful enough yet for them. You’re sick.

First, when a communist country that compels speech, will not allow its citizens to keep and bear arms (yes even cannons) wants to compare its somewhat less violent attacks to America with over 10 times the population I say... Pfistttf!

That said, of course you feel impotent. because God forbid you find yourself in such a situation and also find yourself unarmed and unprepared, you are pretty damned impotent.

Facts are still that more people are killed with hands and feet than styled sporting rifles that the insane call "weapons of war". Now, unfortunately we find ourselves in a war and our kids are on the front line.

In addition to the previous suggestions on how to curb the issue I made previously, how about adding this one!

- Take part of the billions being wasted by Washington on all kinds on nonsense and build a few institutions for the criminally insane? Do you have a problem calling criminals that are crazy "criminally insane"? Is your solution to that waiting around and calling them mass shooters? Is that somehow better?

Long story short, we are in hard times. Hard times have no easy solutions. Just ask the people in Ukraine. Sometimes you have to stop worrying about "feelings" and "do the work" to identify problem characters. I find it difficult to believe that an 18 year old kid that can shoot his grandmother in the face then go to an elementary school (you know where CRT is sooo not being pushed) where there are 6, 7, 8, year old babies and open fire did not display a flicker of werido!

Look, even the anti gun nuts I know (yes they do exist in Texas but they are few) have finally told me that they are not only not alarmed when I am around knowing I carry a gun, one girl even recently said that sometimes she feels somewhat more secure knowing I have one. I told her that in the restaurant we were at with her and her husband that had maybe 150 customers there, that probably half of the people there did too.

So, how about you Becky, after being along with me, after being at the range where I put 5 in the eye of our target @ 15', do you feel a "little bit" comfortable knowing what you do?

And after the reports of the content of Little Ms's. nonsense, it is still true, guns do not kill people, people do.

If it doesn't get politicized, nothing will get done. The gun nuts need to be shamed. The gun nut protectors need to be called out politically when the public is most pissed off about the situation. If there was a popular vote today on gun control, it would overwhelmingly be to get guns controlled strictly. States shouldn't be in charge of gun control.

I have long mentioned the disaster the once world respected American education system has become under the control of radicalized progressives. How the influence of Paulo Freire, Herbert Marcuse, all those Marxists on The Frankfurt School, has lowered the academic rigor and replaced it with critical theory, ESL, and 90% graduation rates of students that can not perform at grade level.

School choice, exiting public school is the answer, at least until a strong conservative, merit based reform us completed!

I think you are well aware I always feel safe and protected with you. You also know that I quickly learned that my mouthing off at someone was quickly put behind me. I am more aware, and more protected when I am with you.

I also feel safe because every single place we go into you always check everything out, sit where you can see everyone, and have a plan.

I love it when one of Joel's 3000 characters show up on your blog. Not like he does not flood the blogs day after day with his inane stories and pictures. I guess he needs to come here and join in. God forbid anyone other than him engage on the blogs. God forbid anyone actually engage like adults with REAL humans and not just their 3000 fake accounts.

I have no idea why you do not block him and all "his characters" they have enough of the bandwidth here, there is no need for them to have another space to take up air and try and pretend they have more than 28 braincells.

Your classes level of security would not be the only thing improved if I did. The topic of conversations and debate would be vastly widened, and many of your students will learn not only some of the things as I have taught you , they will also learn how to take a verbal bashing when arguing with someone armed with facts and real data when all they got is "feelings" and of course a participation ribbon!

I agree with you. Nowhere in the constitution does the word “ regulate” appear except in the second amendment…a well regulated state militia.***
Bullets didn’t even exist when our constitution was written.
There have been 288 school shootings this year in America. It’s time for common sense control on military style weapons.
Some of these kids can’t even be identified by their faces, this weapon was designed to rip and tear flesh…

Steven,

Not to get mired in the political fight that rears its ugly head around these terrible events, but I've got a couple of questions for you and an observation.

One, you've mentioned that worn-out adage that all that is needed is a "good" guy with a gun to confront a bad guy.
Well, that didn't work in Buffalo, now did it? That security guard, an ex Buffalo police lieutenant, I think we'd both agree was not only a good guy but probably a well-trained guy. He died not because he was a bad shot but because he couldn't penetrate the shooter's body armor.

So my first question is why are there no laws against the purchase of body armor? You should be for this. Let's at least agree on this obvious example. Kind of like the reasonable argument you make for voter ID. I'll agree with you on that one point.
Body armor is not covered under the second amendment. Not a requirement for hunting, now is it? Now, of course, I think we need strong background checks as well as some banned weapons, but we need to start tackling a problem that refuses to disappear.

Secondly, I thought you touted yourself as one who never answers with insults and appreciates civil discourse. Explain to me why you had the "Hush, weirdo" response to Starling. Nothing she said even in the least approaches weird. Was that nice? You're channeling your inner my Pillow guy again.
Oh, and please don't counter with this is the case of a 70-something pretending to be a 21 yr old. That response is starting to show dust and cobwebs.

Finally is the observation, I doubt that Starling will hush.

Not all solutions are 100% effective. That's just reality. And when we are dealing with the kind of crazy that are eco-socilaists, it is hard to predict what level of evil they are capable of.

Regarding body armor, I am not sure if you are aware or not, but other socialists hell bent on destroying America were responsible for 500+ riots, dozens of murders, thousands of injuries, and billions in damages during the summer of Love.

Now those same idiots are threatening a summer or rage, which I personally advise against because that kind of thing is dumb, and potentially dangerous.

So body armor seems like a reasonable precaution.

There will of course be weirdo, dumdaaaes, and violent leftists that support political violence that will use it in an offensive kind of way, but mine I'd purely a defensive measure.

As to the other weirdo, I've never seen him on cam, so I can't say anything about age, gender and all that, but that Becca weirdo I, and others have. If you have been smitten with him, I wish you both happiness.

Of course starling won't hush, it's fucking Joel, and no matter how many prayers we evoke, how many sacrifices made to the gods, that old fucker has zero life and just spends every second of his pathetic life on alt blogs.

There is a rash of old men who fancy themselves as many other genders, ages, and personas on Alt, and just can't resist being a troll.

The world would be a much better place if someone lost their internet connection for 6 months or so.

It's not his inner Pillow Guy, anyone with more than 5 brain cells can spot a Joel account in about 2 seconds. That person does not deserve consideration, attention, or anything but insults. Act like trash, get treated like trash.

Dude, I generally refer to actual current events, back my position with facts often cited from questionable sources proven to promote misinformation like CNN , NBC, CBS, ABC, NPR, and the like.

Also I have been on cam by myself and with my sub, and from time to time with my sub AND her sub.

I have also confirmed that you too were on cam, not deliberately it seemed and known to be an old man.

Want to prove me wrong ? We can schedule a time for us both to be on, oh and a recorded video is easy to determine.

Wow you are lucky Sir, three of Joel's accounts on one blog. God damn he must be desperate for some interaction that is not himself. You are almost just like him now. You look popular cause the same guy with endless accounts is commenting on your blog.

He is a bit like a cockroach huh? Give him a little tiny opening and he moves in and takes over. Guess since 99% of the posts on the blog are his, he is desperate cause someone else actually posted. Shame there is not a blog exterminator we could call.

Well, I personally have a holsters, high performance handgun every day. Hardly the wild west here compared to the wild East and insanity that has subway shooting, gas station shootouts with a pair of idiots, or the dozens of shooting every weekend in Chicago, Detroit, Minneapolis and the like.

So, yeah, until police are allowed to do their job, and DA's do too, I think that having my constitionial rights upheld.

If the average citizen has a win it's like a concession from the rich to keep things going. Modern society for us is like being tuned to a social nervous system. Everyday our values are tested. It is a bleak world to contemplate some times. We may look beyond our simple understanding of how things work to a deeper timeless natural agenda. Is that what we're seeing now? Is progress being made against the cruel totalitarian governments ?

Imagined quandaries with real solutions.

Fact 1: The SCUS has ruled more than 28 times that the job of the police is to protect "society", a term they have never defined, but not you. If you call 911 the police do not have to come.

Fact 2: Why should the police, people who work for me, be allowed to have something I can not own? If police have vest, why can't I?

Fact 3: Amendment 2 is about the rights of the people not about a militia. Diagram the sentence and you will find that the militia clause is the subordinate clause and can not stand if the "right of the people" clause is not there. The "Right of the people" clause stands alone, it does not need the militia clause at all!

    Quoting 4Faksake:
    The USA comes across as a silly country.
Says someone from Australia where there has been covid concentration camps.

I much prefer our ultra brand of silly.

The "progressive " version is plain old stupid.

I agree with one exception. I am retired and one of my retirement checks come from the "Police Officers Retirement System of South Carolina". I train constantly with my guns, both on the range and dry firing exercises. Do not expect many police officers to be competent with their firearm. I have been on the range shooting for qualification and doing so on the first try and then watch many officers fail multiple times before finally making it by the lowest score allowed.

Remember, many of the people who go into law enforcement are not gun people. They hope to make a difference in society without ever having to fire a gun in anger. Now I know it cost money to provide the ammo needed to shoot a qualifying round. But the police departments around the country must be willing to put out the money to have their officers on the range at least weekly or buy the computerized shoot, no shoot programs and make their officers go through it at least weekly.

To end, I know a lot of civilians who are better shots than most police officers. So train civilians to protect schools, hospitals and other places you wish to keep safe. Remember, those of us who are licensed to carry concealed are the most law abiding cohort of citizens in the United States.

Thank you for letting me rant on your blog.
