Interesting: In today’s NY Times, they print an article advising everyday Americans to fight an active attack by a glory killer instead of remaining passive and waiting for help.
(New York Times) – The speed and deadliness of recent high-profile shootings have prompted police departments to recommend fleeing, hiding or fighting in the event of a mass attack, instead of remaining passive and waiting for help.
The shift represents a “sea change,” said Chuck Wexler, executive director of the Police Executive Research Forum, which recently held a meeting in Washington to discuss shootings like those in Newtown, Conn., and Aurora, Colo.
Oh my, it must have hurt worse than holy water on a demonically possessed person for the dedicated leftists at the NYTimes to acknowledge that the police and big government can’t save you, and that you’ll need to depend on yourself in the face of a glory killer attack.
We’ve been teaching this for a long time in our GSL Defense Training courses, and writing about it in GunNews.
Real Americans don’t cowerOctober 26, 2012
Alex Wagner, a journalist and political commentator for MSNBC, recently offered her analysis of a recent school violence rampage in Ohio with, “Cowering under a desk is indeed the only recourse for people facing life threatening situations in a school.”
Now, Miss Wagner favors the abolition of the Second Amendment.
It would seem that gun aficionados are cut from a different cloth than those like Miss Wagner who would ban all guns.
Cower in the face of life-threatening attack?
Only neutered and feminized Americans would do such a, well, cowardly thing.
If there is a credible threat of an active shooter or terrorist attack, children (and adults alike) might well be better advised to seek the nearest exit and escape to safety. If fleeing is not an option, teach your children how to find an improvised weapon and to mount a counter-attack. This, particularly for adolescent children and adults, is far more useful and noble than cowering under one’s desk waiting for a murderer to come around and add to the body count.
Teaching our children to cower in the face of an attack is teaching future adults to be sheep in the face of slaughter.
Maybe that’s what Miss Wagner was taught as a child and young adult.
It’s not what real Americans teach their children.
