    Today in 2007

    I'm sort of surprised that this hasn't been posted yet but on December 9 2007 a concealed carrier stopped an attack that had the potential of resulting in much greater loss of life than the Sandy Hook tragedy. It's worth reading, or rereading, this story of how a well prepared concealed carrier made a difference.

    I love hearing stories like that. Too bad victims were killed before the BG was taken out

    I remember the YWAM event quite well- it happend across the parking lot from my son's daycare. The reverse 911 call in the middle of the night with the "shooter on the loose" was quite disturbing- we did not sleep much after that. Little did we know that he was on his way to Colorado Springs. The media tried to portray the lady as a police officer/security guard, NOT as a civilian CCW holder with police experience.

    Of course this story would be buried and hated by the Liberal media. It shows that a trained and armed person IS effective against a shooter who believes his potential targets are unarmed.

    It doesn't fit the Liberal logic that equal or greater force will never slow or stop a shooting situation. It simply does not fit the anti-gun agenda of disarmament of private law-abiding citizens who can and do take the initiative and use a gun to stop a shooter. Quite frankly, the Liberal will never admit that a gun in the well-trained hand of some one can stop a shoot.
