32 people shot dead, 24 wounded. Lone sociopath attacks Virginia University. I hear Frank Zappa in my mind singing”It can’t happen here, it can’t happen here, it can’t happen here, no no no, it can’t happen here.” Ol‘ F.Z. was one sarcastic son of a bitch.
Wake up People!
It does happen here. It happens to people who are defenseless because they have entrusted their safety to the State. It happens to people who live in condition White. Is your personal defense weapon loaded and within reach while you read this. No? Why not? Because”it can’t happen here? Turn on the T.V. babe, cause it’s happening right now, live and in color. Then, stop the wailing and gnashing of teeth and go call the N.R.A. Tell them that you would like to take a firearms qualification course. It takes less than an a day and costs less than $100.00 .
Then, if you live in Virginia, or Wesbygod, or Pennsylvania, or any of the 39 states that issue private concealed carry permits, Go Get One. Then, go buy a pistol whose calibre begins with the number 4. Ya see folks, one lunatic attacks a college with over 26,000 students and probably at least as many staff and workers. He is using 2 9mm pistols. His attack begins around 7:00 A.M. and ends 4 or 5 hours later. He kills 32 people and wounds over 24. Eventually the police show up and the perp assumes room temperature. This the best evidence available that “The Police Can Not Protect You.” The duty to protect you and yours lies with yourself only, but owning a firearm is useless without the proper mind set. You must stop living in condition white(oblivious to one’s surroundings and an easy target-the bad guys can tell, believe me). Condition yellow is easily maintained daily( alert, eyes up, scanning for bad guys,-easy to spot, believe me on this one too). Be prepared to switch to condition Orange at a moments notice( threat identified-Danger!) Then go to condition red if necessary, concentrate on front sight, keep squeezing trigger until threat is eliminated. Afterwards, call 9-11 if you like. Celebrate your survival with good scotch and the roast beast of your choice. Remember what the guy said about the tragedy of flight 93, which was hijacked and crashed in Pennsylvania on 9/11. Same thing applies to this latest modern massacre. “Too many cell-phones, not enough pistols”.
It can happen here folks. It just did. Again.
A tragedy, a travesty.
