This is a discussion on Must Read on Stoping School Shootings. within the Concealed Carry Issues & Discussions forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; Active shooters in schools: The enemy is denial Dave Grossman states it like it is. A must Read!...
Wow. He is right on.
Note: that article is from May of 2010 and we as a nation are still in denial.
Col. Dave Grossman is my hero!! Absolutely hits the nail on the head, yet again.
" But if you are authorized to carry a weapon, and you walk outside without it, just take a deep breath, and say this to yourself... Baa." Col. Dave Grossman on Sheep and Sheepdogs.
Grossman is the real deal- a bit eccentric (I've met him a few different times, and was interviewed about an critical incident I was involved in, I got to know him a little bit) but has a heart of gold and a mind to match.

He is exactly on target. Tons of training. On the wrong subject. Sad.
Thanks for the link!!

"The belief in a supernatural source of evil is not necessary.
Men alone are quite capable of every wickedness."
Fairly strong points. Nicely done, Mr. Grossman.
A concise, cogent and intelligent letter drafted to each of our elected representatives in federal and state legislatures could be combined with a copy of this Grossman article and a couple others. Might make a good EOY gift for each of them, as they enter the new year contemplating whether to cave on all fronts or to intelligently address the complex issue of violence/crime reduction ... by going after it much like the school fires issue was gone after half a century ago. Let's get to writing ...
Well said. I'm sharing this with my fellow friends.
If you wish for peace, prepare for war.
Good article. Thanks for posting the link. Unfortunately, the people who MOST need to read and heed this will probably never see it! We here on the forum are "preaching to the choir" so to speak. The politicians and leaders who could actually DO something are too busy decrying the "evil" guns and trying to ban them, instead of focusing on the real problem and intelligent solutions.

that's a great article, I've already shared it with a bunch of people.
I'm in favor of gun control -- I think every citizen should have control of a gun.

It's a good article. Grossman is, in my opinion, too "extreme" for the masses. The sheeple would read other things he has written and dismiss him as a bloodthirsty warrior, I fear. You have to understand that the mindset of the anti-gun folks is guns are the problem. If it doesn't fit into what they already believe they will find a reason to dismiss it.
I have a very strict gun control policy: if there's a gun around, I want to be in control of it.
Reading that...I was in shock. I cannot believe how obviously right he was.
No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.
Laws are restrictive but sometimes necessary to maintain a civil society. Rights are nonrestrictive but are always necessary to maintain a free society.
Heck of an article.
Too bad no one listed to him then, and probably won't now.
Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

Arm all staff members of age!!! Give them monthly training to ensure they are very capable of using a firearm properly. Turn the sheep into sheep dogs...I don't know any wolf would mess with a school knowing 80+(I went to a fairly large school) knowing they are armed. Just my thought.
