Why Armed Citizens Must Be First Responders
Here we are in the aftermath of yet another mass shooting in America and the left can’t wait to pounce. As if it were scripted (and of course, it wasn’t), a deranged white boy guns down a group of innocents in possibly the nation’s most historic black church.
Enter our dear leader, Obama, right on cue, to once again make this tragedy into an anti-gun rally. Yet, just as he did in the Cambridge police incident, he begins his tired diatribe by admitting he doesn’t know all the facts of the case, but let’s get rid of all the guns anyway. That will solve the problem. Sure, he didn’t come out and say it, but everyone knows where he stands on the issue.
He also wrongly stated that these mass shootings happen more often in America than anywhere else. This is a patently false statement, as he probably knows. Incidences of mass shootings/killings happen everywhere and invariably in gun free countries or gun free zones.
Apparently, this bowl-headed little dirt bag had only a 45 caliber semi-auto pistol with the standard clip holding maybe 7 to 10 rounds. Reports are that he may have reloaded up to five times.
If, by some chance, a parishioner happened to be carrying a weapon, the carnage may not have been prevented entirely, but most certainly would have been mitigated. And if this little piece of white trash had known ahead of time that someone in the church may have been armed, he probably wouldn’t have ventured in in the first place.
Cowards prey on the weak and unarmed. I believe it’s against South Carolina law to carry in a church. Is it possible he knew this? I’d say so.
Even if someone at the scene had the opportunity to call the authorities, it would be unlikely for anyone to have arrived in time. Yet the people we are told to call are designated as first responders because they arrive on the scene first.
So who do we think of use the term first responder? Police – fire department – EMTs. The dictionary definition of first responder is: a person (as a police officer or an EMT) who is among those responsible for going immediately to the scene of an accident or emergency to provide assistance.
Yet, by definition no “first responder” could have mitigated this incident. The real first responders must be us – an armed public. Even the Whitehouse.gov gun control propaganda site inadvertently admits this as it states: “While no law or set of laws will end gun violence, it is clear that the American people want action. Even if one child’s life can be saved, then we need to act. Now is the time to do the right thing for our children, our communities, and the country we love.” Are they talking about gun control or late-term abortion?
This is typical progressive nonsense. We know it won’t help, but we in government must take action and do something. Progressives, as we know, are all about action.
If they really want to help stop gun violence, take the shackles off of the people, so we may be the first responders. Mass shootings only happen in gun free zones. Even if the shooter(s) has a death wish, they set out first to inflict as much pain and damage as possible before being taken out. If a killer, even a deranged killer, thinks he will be taken out prematurely, it’s unlikely he will attempt the act.
There is the only way to prevent mass shootings, and that is to free up our real first responders by ridding ourselves of gun free zones.
Will that end all killings? Of course not. As the White House says, “no law or set of laws will end gun violence,” but I believe mass killings would come to an abrupt halt.
