Gun Control Protest in California

        Obviously, this is totally a touchy subject, and people really don’t know what side of the fence that they belong on. In this case I gravitate towards the side that is considered the protectors. I totally agree with having the license to carry a concealed weapon. However, yet as society grapples with the specter of more mass shootings, many will say there’s only one solution: get rid of the guns. Never mind such an approach is what led to much of this violence in the first place. Without an effective, immediate way to answer such destruction it has continued.

        

        Yes, gun free or as I like to call them free fire zones that do not work; in fact, they invite such predators.  However, my question is what is The LONG -TERM solution to minimizing this in the future. We have to look to ourselves as a society, and understand that the SHORT-TERM solution is stopping the bloodshed as it happens, suddenly and without warning in the most unexpected locations.

         It is both the off-duty officer and armed responsible, good civilian that actually stands guard against the next active shooter incident. They have intervened in the past to save lives. Further loss of life in these instances can only be stopped by a gun. Time is spent in discussing the decision to intervene using the major and current mass school shootings as an example; it may not be so cut and dried. However, for the immediate and effective answer to a rampaging gunman, the gun is necessary and it will need someone with courage, training, and skill to run it.

        However, the media and many politicians will ignore this stark fact and have concealed instances where a concealed carry permit holder stopped mass shootings. Instead their “solutions” to mass shootings will be predictable: a call for more restrictions, more government scrutiny and approval for you to have guns, universal gun registration, bans on gun types and accessories, and eventually severed curtailed ownership or even confiscation.

        As I have mentioned before “protectionists;” are people whose actions will have the same result but whose motives may very different. They truly want to stop the carnage and will support anyone an anything promises (though fails) to accomplish this. These protectionists don’t comprehend the US Constitution, its wisdom in preserving us a free nation, the importance of remaining an armed, free people and maybe don’t even care. They just want to end the violence in public places, to stop these murders. We do too and always have. How can we prevent the bloodshed, the carnage of these murderers who choose the gun as their killing tool?
