In The Hands of a Good Person

One woman with a gun stopped the massacre. The fact that she was a police officer was secondary. Would Columbine been different if there had been a couple of armed teachers there? Would Virginia Tech had gone a little differently if there had been a few armed people near the shooter? Most likely. People would have died but not as many.

A gun is in and of itself a morally neutral thing whose actions reflect the morality and sanity of the person holding it. It the hands of an evil or crazy person it becomes an item of destruction and murder. In the hands a heroic person it can stop an evil or crazy person from harming others.

It is a great equalizer. It is as effective in the hands of a 100 pound woman as it is in the hands of a 200 pound body builder.

One of the few true things that Chairman Mao said is that all political power comes out of the barrel of a gun. For the people to have the power the guns must be in the hands of the people. An armed population is a free population.

Legal or not, criminals will always have guns. No law will disarm those who intend to break the law. Disarm the honest citizen and he will be the prey of both kinds of criminals, outlaws and autocratic lawmakers.

And those who want to leave the law-abiding citizens as helpless victims are not giving up.

throughtout history - tyrants took away the ability to make or buy weapons -
look at the Hebrews under the Philistines...no blacksmiths allowed in the Hebrew camps...

By virtue of what would simply have to be the culmination of their agendas/beliefs were it not for the opposition of those of us who resist their doctrine, the political left, whether they realize it or not, would have us living at the mercy of a government not unlike the Politboro, stripped of the rights that make America both great and unique in the world.

As far as I know, the only people who joined the American Communist Party back in the 1960s were liberals.

Depriving us of the wherewithal to defend ourselves against such a government is a natural part of the mix.

Do you recall how the female security guard stopped the massacre of the Israeli students?

ONE committed person defending lives CAN make a difference.

The British made it nearly impossible for the American colonists to manufacture arms, powder, or ammunition. Our history shows what we can do against a tyrannical government if we are prepared - and armed. Obama and his fellow Leftists understand this totally.

Thus the never-ending push to 'ban' guns among the citizenry. They fear 'the People', as well they should!

You going to rush the security force at Goldman Sachs or the New York Fed?

Why have school shootings virtually disappeared without arming teachers?

The purpose of guns is to keep others from threatening me, not for me to threaten others. I have no intention of rushing anyone's security force at this time.

Great commentary, Shoprat. Sad story and a hopeful twist at its conclusion.
