When a Shooter Calls – How to Respond?

On NBC News, we read:

High school student Autumn Vicari told NBC News her 19-year-old brother J.J. was in a room filled with students at the college when the gunman entered.

According to her brother’s account, Vicari said at one point the shooter told people to stand up before asking whether they were Christian or not.

Vicari’s brother told her that anyone who responded “yes” was shot in the head. If they said “other” or didn’t answer, they were shot elsewhere in the body, usually the leg. Vicari said her brother managed to escape but watched as three people were later killed in another room. He believes the gunman didn’t spot him, Vicari said — adding that J.J. was struggling to deal with what he witnessed.

When a shooter calls, how do you respond? If the shooter orders all Christians to stand up, and you are a Bible-believing Christian who loves Jesus (much like myself), how do you respond?

You shoot back. You kill the son of a bitch if you have to.

Problem: Umpqua College is a “gun-free” zone, which unsurprisingly did not deter the shooter from bringing a gun onto the campus. All of the law-abiding and legally “good” citizens were unarmed. They did not even have an armed security guard, which is truly, resoundingly stupid. You’d think College presidents would’ve figured out by now that campuses are juicy targets.

The President of Umpqua College worried that an armed security guard might “change the culture” of the campus, which is why the measure was rejected. Furthermore, he reasoned that a single armed security guard would probably not do much good anyway, which is true. They should’ve had several armed guards, at least. I suspect the choice to have unarmed security will have had far more of an impact on campus culture than armed security ever would have had.

It makes the American Left happy to know that law-abiding citizens are defenseless against criminals. This is part of their religion, which I have in the past called the Church of the State. It is a religion which emphasizes the messianic character of the State to bring salvation to the masses as the great provider of food, housing, medical care, education, and protection from harm.

After the shooting, the Priss-in-Chief released this statement from the White House:

Earlier this year, I answered a question in an interview by saying, “The United States of America is the one advanced nation on Earth in which we do not have sufficient common-sense gun-safety laws — even in the face of repeated mass killings.” And later that day, there was a mass shooting at a movie theater in Lafayette, Louisiana. That day! Somehow this has become routine. The reporting is routine. My response here at this podium ends up being routine. The conversation in the aftermath of it. We’ve become numb to this.

We talked about this after Columbine and Blacksburg, after Tucson, after Newtown, after Aurora, after Charleston. It cannot be this easy for somebody who wants to inflict harm on other people to get his or her hands on a gun.

And what’s become routine, of course, is the response of those who oppose any kind of common-sense gun legislation. Right now, I can imagine the press releases being cranked out: We need more guns, they’ll argue. Fewer gun safety laws.

He’s damn right we’ll argue for more guns, especially in citizen hands. Big Barry-O is finally starting to figure out our angle. If I had things my way, here’s what I would do: pull the military out of every overseas conflict and cut its budget in half; drones included. Then, I’d encourage all peace-loving and law-abiding citizens in the USA to buy a gun and learn to use it. Boom, shaka-laka. I’ll take a strongly-armed populace over a worthless military-industrial complex any day of the week.

Here is my sincere belief: The Leftist desire for gun-control is not so much an attempt to keep guns from criminals, as they claim it to be. They claim that such legislation is aimed at criminals, but I dispute this. Everyone knows that’s a loser’s game, such as this example from tightly gun-controlled France. I believe that deep down, gun control is more about reinforcing the presence of the State-god to the common citizen, and reinforcing that the common citizen should look only to the State-god for care and protection. It is about demonstrating the State as a modern Messiah to the common citizen. Ultimately, it is about demanding obedience to the State.

As far as I’m concerned, there’s only one Messiah, and the State ain’t him. Rather than bringing salvation to the masses, the State turns the masses into welfare slaves and destroys society. The best examples of this are the Native American reservations, which are generally socialist hellholes despite full rides from US taxpayers. Close behind are the poor black and latino ghettos, alongside the poor white redneck communities. All of these communities are suffering from utter breakdowns in civil society. Jesus heals and rejuvenates; the State wrecks and destroys, as we can see.

So, what do you do when a shooter calls and everyone is unarmed? You have to work together. You all charge the guy at once and beat him into a bloody pulp. There is a good chance one or two people will be shot while trying this, but it’s better than everyone getting shot by refusing to fight back.
