If there had been a good guy with a gun at the Umpqua Community College, who was licensed and allowed to carry it into class, he could have sent the murdering spawn of Satan to hell where he belongs.
Unfortunately, there was no concealed weapon in the possession of a concerned citizen to stop this demonic dipstick because guns are disallowed on campus.
Correct me if I’m wrong, but haven’t the majority of the mass murders within the US in the last 20-30 years been in the Gun Free Zones?
Why don’t one of you industrious bloggers on the Left Google that stat and get back to me?
Gun Free Zones turn the people who inhabit such places into sitting ducks for insane whack jobs with death wishes.
I know, I know, there are campus cops and security guards with plastic badges, golf carts, walkie talkies and pepper spray; however that line of defense brings zero comfort to me if serious bullet flying shit starts hitting the fan in a classroom.
Look, even the best Rambo like police force equipped to the teeth, driving Vipers and descending en masse on campus in Black Hawk helicopters could not have responded fast enough to kill the Umpqua Campus Killer. But a fast thinking, well-trained student or professor could have.
I hate to seem pessimistic, but given this post-911 era and our current crappy culture, I don’t see an atmospheric break in this violent weather pattern.
I guarantee that even as I type and our nation weeps, there is, somewhere in the United States of Political Correctness, some Islamic Radical or some other disenfranchised dillweed is making plans on how he can out do this latest massacre.
BTW, the community college killer asked the ‘religion of his victims’. Sounds like an adherent of ‘the religion of you know who’ to me. Does anyone have the shooter’s name and his religion yet?
Here’s the Umpqua campus’ official statement regarding self-defense:
“Possession, use, or threatened use of firearms (including but not limited to BB guns, air guns, water pistols, and paint guns) ammunition, explosives, dangerous chemicals, or any other objects as weapons on college property, except as expressly authorized by law or college regulations, is prohibited,” the college’s security policy states.
Joe Olson, former president of the college, told The Associated Press the school has only one security officer on duty at a time, and that person isn’t armed.
