And start limiting their ability to make victims
(CBS/AP) AURORA, Colo. (Mid report) “The shooting occurred in Theater 9, which has a capacity of around 300 people, according to CBS station KCNC in Denver. The youngest reported victim is a 3-month-old, who is said to be doing fine at University Hospital, which is treating 20 patients, including nine in critical condition. Another victim is a six-year-old being treated at Children’s Hospital, where a total of six victims were taken. Their condition wasn’t known. Victims were rushed to six area hospitals overall.”
Yeah, I know I’m a Christian. And “not caring” is not supposed to be part of our vocabulary.
But from this point forward, I don’t care about the killers. Zero.
I don’t care how depressed, how abused, how broke, how mistreated or how insane. People who walk in and randomly kill are one thing. Killers. What I care about is their victims.
One of the first news discussions I heard about the Aurora, Colorado shooting was on FOX news with the talking heads on a video conference with a minister.
The minister was talking about all the psychological help we could give somebody like this murderer. He talked about all the things we could do to “reconnect” somebody like him to society before he kills. He talked about how psychologists can bring this type person’s pastors and other important figures into their treatment. He talked about it like it would work. BULL.
This is stuff that has been known for 40 years of mass shootings. It doesn’t work.
Let’s be clear. Somebody who will walk into a building and randomly shoot men, women and children can only be dealt with one way.
It won’t be by treatment, psychological counseling, pastoral help, or hugs. They are going to attempt to carry out their murderous insanity at some point, no matter what. That’s what we have to quit acting amazed about and start being ready for.
People coming into any place to kill people must be physically disabled or killed on scene. Otherwise statements like “12 dead, 50 wounded” will continue to show up in the headlines.
- It is now time to quit thinking and talking about why.
- It’s time to stop thinking about what we could have done…..maybe.
- It’s time to stop discussing what we can do for the killers before they kill – after they have killed.
It’s time to start doing everything every one of us can do to encourage, train and equip all businesses where people gather in mass. It’s time to teach them how to dispense with a shooter quickly before their body count piles up.
It’s time to ramp up all efforts to encourage people to obtain, learn to use and carry a firearm.
It’s time to quit discussing and start eliminating, on scene, the mass murderers.
It’s important not to allow this shooting to turn into yet another mindless argument on “gun control”.
BOTTOM LINE: The quicker the shooters are dead on scene, the lower the victim count.
The stupid “after the murders” discussions by news people, psychologists, judges, law enforcement, and preachers have been going on for several decades now. The murders have only gotten more frequent, bizarre and devastating.
The only ones worth listening to at this point are those who know how to implement training in dispatching gunmen on scene. And that means dispatching them whether they’re in a restaurant, movie theater, college campus or grade school.
It’s time to stop locking down, locking in, losing lives. It’s time to start killing mass murderers as soon as they start their madness.
It’s time to reduce the number of victims and their families we have to deal with in the aftermath.
Killers down quickly, on scene = fewer victims.
With about four decades of progressive insane murders, no other evidence for a solution stands the test of validity.
The defense of peoples’ lives has to lie with the people, not with law enforcement or other civil or government solutions.
Until we the people are ready to defend ourselves against mass shooters, people will continue to mindlessly and needlessly die.
