We cannot hide our heads in the sand or deny the evidence coming from the interrogation rooms and terrorist training sites on the web. It’s a matter of when, not if. This is one of the reasons we carry weapons. Think of the good an “amateur” can do, stumbling on to a terror plot and stopping those that would create chaos and horror and grief. Each one of us has the ability to throw such plans into disarray. Stranger things have happened. People need to be alert these days and the time to decide to use deadly force in defense of others is now, not when the need arises. By then, it will be too late.”
The words above are from a retired member of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department that knows something about gunfights. I am not sure where he is getting his information; however, he gets feeds from many of the top law enforcement intelligence gathering services.
Check out Israel’s answer to school violence.
Schools and school buses are probably under surveillance by terrorists and being “pinged” in order to guage reactions and identify security measures.
Beslan was the event in Russia that is a model and was probably a dress rehearsal for the rape, slaughter and torture of young school children (no Todd Beamer’s this time unless an armed rescuer just arrives somehow, Rambo style). When the responders and concerned parents gather there will be booby traps and/or snipers. Keep in mind that every time some mindless shooter goes into a school like in the Virginia Tech shooting or several that have occcured in just the last week, the media analysis acts as intelligence that is picked up by professional Al Qaeda agents and their affiliates. These operatives are able to study every aspect of the reaction time, vulnerabilities, follow up, etc. You have to realize they are taking notes and making plans.
Every anti-gun idealogue that refuses to acknowlege the need for armed security forces in our schools is acting in a fashion that is tantamount to that of an accomplice.
Almost every attack has been in a “gun-free” zone. Thus, the murderer knows that it is unlikely any of his or her victims will be armed. At the present time, the Washington Administrative Code, promulgated by unelected bureaucrats, prohibits weapons on campus in Washington. It is questionable whether the WAC regulations have any legal effect since they conflict with Washington State’s firearms preemption law that prohibits any local municipal gun laws that further restrict concealed carry beyond the restrictions in the RCWs.
That is why some liberal lawyers and anti-gunners in Olympia want to get a new law passed to “clarify” the situation. No one wants to be a test case and you could get expelled from your state university for carrying so each student in a state college or university has to make an informed decision as to whether to exercise his or her right to carry on campus with a valid carry license pursuant to our state laws.
It is your life and your education that is at stake. There is no right to carry at a high school or elementary school with or without a license to carry, at this time. But write to your representatives and demand that something be done rather than listening to the anti-gun lobby chant that “common sense regulation and appropriate restrictions on weapons will solve the problem.”
The restrictions only restrict law- abiding people and not criminals, psychopaths and terrorists. If a single person would gun down a defenseless person, that same person will pay no attention to a law restricting guns.
In fact, the gun-free status of the institution or facility makes it a target for the psychopathic killer.
The individuals in our schools that need to be the first line of defense, however, are the students, instructors and staff with either concealed carry permits or specialized training possibly with a new kind of license indicating some advanced tactical training for the situations anticipated herein. It is not possible to hire enough armed guards to guard a large high school or college campus. Most of the security guards that do provide a presence at such places are unarmed security guards, however.
Remember, the reason for such slaughter is not because the terrorists expect us to cave in. Al Qaeda does not really care much about our foreign policy toward Israel and the West Bank either. They want you to get so mad that some of you start murdering innocent American Muslim people. This will alienate the moderate Muslims within and outside of America pushing them into the Islamicist camp.
True Followers of Christ will not engage in murdering innocent people but many Americans may be carried away with the concept of imprisoning Arabic people in the same way as Japanese were interned during WW II. Even a declaration of martial law could follow the holocaust that the Al Qaeda affiliates plan. The fact that Al Qaeda has been suppressed should not cause us to assume that that there are not many homegrown terrorists, even loners with no connection to organized terror. The attacker in Aurora, Colorado has been reported to have some affiliation with an Occupy Wall Street group in San Diego. Perhaps more information regarding the connection to the group will be forthcoming now that we know he was definitely not aligned with the Tea Party or one of Sarah Palin’s followers! ABC has been very diligent in checking out that lead.
The same “liberals” that already want to restrict our gun rights and disarm honest people may be holding the reins of power if and when the country faces the chaos of a WMD or some other disaster. On the other hand, the jihadist believes that in a few generations a Caliphate will arise to force you to submit (that is what Islam means- submission) to its religious laws. Nevertheless, the biggest threat of all continues to be those of us that read the Bible and that believe that Scripture has something to say about public policy. After all, any restriction on abortion or marriage rights represents a spearhead into theocratic dictatorship with domestic terrorism standing in the wings.
Many of the U.S. authorities are presently so eager to accomodate Islamicists (and are intimidated by CAIR’s threats of legal action) that Christianity is being denigrated while Islam is celebrated in the name of diversity. There are many examples but sufficient to state for now that these are the first steps toward submission.
Arming yourself legally (with a concealed carry permit in a majority of states) is not vigilante action. It is a lawful precaution for self-defense. Reasonable men and women obey the laws.
The “Islamofascists” count on some American Muslims to react to the slaughter and/or abuse of innocent Muslim people that could become the aftermath of an Beslan-style attack on an American school. The attacks on innocent Muslims will work as a recruiting tool for jihad (remember the Japanese internment under FDR and Earl Warren during WW II).
Keep an eye on school buses and warn public officials and your neighbors. Self-defense and defense of others when attacked is not vigilantiism.
Make sure you recognize your school bus drivers and ask your local school district to provide for some staff to become trained and certified to carry weapons.
It will take a change in the laws of most states, including Washington State, but we need to take precautions similar to the Israeli schools and schools in other countries like Thailand where the staff is armed and ready for jihad. Meanwhile get your permit and learn how to shoot.
It takes time to get ready and, even if you do not make the choice to get armed at this time, now is the time you can be observant and you should call 911 when things seem the least bit suspicious. Around the U.S., remote control planes have been observed cruising over bridges and other infrastructure and there is reason to believe that videos are being transmitted by means of remote control helicopters and planes(they show up on You Tube).
Any supicious activity involving facilities or infrastructure being observed and/or filmed should be reported. Remember that there are already terrorist training sessions online that focus on elementary schools and School buses are also probable targets. Al Qaeda tells American Muslims that they should not try to obtain training overseas but just study rescources that are available on the internet. Learning to shoot is very low tech compared to bomb making and other jihad tactics.
No person knows the future but the intentions of our enemies have been clearly announced and our government is telling us the enemy is here already. Why do so many deny that this is so? There is gang intelligence suggesting that weapons transfers involving Middle Eastern operatives are occuring near the Mexican border. Denial is a basic psychological mechanism.
The fact that many people do not want to believe these things does not mean it is not happening. A few jihadists with AK-47s can paralyze this country if they have a plan and are willing to die like they have done in Beslan, Mumbai and many other places. A few Americans with some pistols can stop them if we are trained and mentally prepared.
