On July 20th, 2012 James Holmes committed an act of alleged maniacal and lethal aggression towards a group of movie patrons. 12 dead, 59 injured…America was shocked.
Politicians ran to heat the debate of gun control, but something different happened… It fell on deaf ears. America opted for the red pill.
We no longer have closed eyes in dreams fed to us by the powers that be. The only true defense against a methodical madman, immediate retaliation!
Hey, you can huddle up in the fetal position and beg for your life. You can run into jams of crowded people who reacted the same. Or you can be prepared.
Let’s examine some informative details the mainstream media purposely avoids telling you.
– Colorado is a state which has Concealed Carry Licensing. Only the state government can issue an order for a location to be off limits to licensed carry. It is described to the letter of the law as government building and makes no mention of commercial or residential locations. C.R.S. 29-11.7-103
– The Century Movie theater (owned by Cine-mark of Plano, TX) has a nationwide “gun free” policy. Widely known to the awakened as “Kill Zones.” Since when did corporate policies super cede state law?
– The theater did not provide proper security to its patrons. Especially if it were to demand they come stripped of their rights.
– One well trained man or woman could have stopped the shooter and saved so many lives. We don’t shoot to kill, we shoot so others may live.
We cannot un-invent the gun. To conceive that we can ensure that they will be placed in the right hands at all times is just foolish.
The answer is to accept it as a tool. Not much different than what you would find in your garage or shop. It is the person who wields it that is to be in question.
How do we eliminate this infection of lunatics that go on rampages? Where is our new drug of immunity? New laws? Banned weapons? No.
There is no way to make it go away. You cannot cure evil. It is the inherent curse of man and will forever follow us. Our forefathers knew this when they founded our nation, so much so they saw it fit to instill constitutional rights to ensure we as free Americans can bear arms.
So what can you do to stand your ground? Well there are two different types of shooters: those that have and those that have not. However the solution is the same.
Bring your wallet.
A quality handgun can be had from as low as $300. Go to your local gun shop and ask questions regarding your rights to own and carry a handgun for self defense.
Ask to see different models until you find your pistol. Remember, the comfort you have with your gun’s grip will be the developing foundation of your marksmanship abilities.
Find a Certified Firearms Instructor. You will be surprised to find out what you don’t know. These individuals or groups are also excellent resources for local or state weapons laws.
In particular, for the new shooter, they can train you from the ground up in a relatively short time frame.
Follow four simple safety rules and be able to operate using combinations of them:
1. ALL firearms are considered loaded until both visually and physically checked.
2. NEVER point a firearm at anything you are not willing to destroy.
3. NEVER place your finger on the trigger until you are on target.
4. ALWAYS be aware of your target and its surroundings.
From the layout provided of the theater itself, and the description as to how James Holmes engaged the crowd, those in the front rows were the immediate attack.
After that he lobbed chemical canisters to the rearward upper level areas. Then he marched up the left side sweeping the audience. In this instance, an unarmed victim has little to no choice but to fight or flee.
Those that fled bottle-necked the exits. Those trapped in the center seating areas had nowhere to go. They suffered the brunt of the attack.
How do you survive a theater style shooting? Well if you’re unarmed you’re at the mercy of your attacker for at least 5 minutes until the police arrive. Avoid any seating that places obstacles (people or objects) between you and your exit. If you are next to the attacker, you do have the choice of utilizing force to attempt to subdue him, but this is almost as risky as running.
For those of you that choose to exercise your rights it’s a whole different approach. In this instance, if you were anywhere but the front row, you would have time to draw your weapon and fire. Being that this nut job had body armor on, one shot is not going to do it.
You will also need a weapon of 9mm or greater. Preferably a .40, .45 or .357. With a firm grip you will need to fire into both chest and head (Mozambique drill) consecutively while you approach the threat. Your approach speed should be determined by steadiness, not haste. Feel free to step on the unarmed if need be; they are probably used to it, and frankly, you are saving their lives.
Once you have reached the assailant, try to assess his movement, especially in the hands. You are now at point blank range with your would-be killer. If he moves finish him. Remember once you draw your weapon and fire off that first round, there is no turning back. Get into the fight! Your job is to stop, control or neutralize the threat.
In this and many other mass shooting incidents, with all the vivacious level of carnage that comes with them, only lethal force can ensure your safety and the safety of others.
There are over 70 million gun owners that killed no one yesterday. To fight for your life and the life of your loved ones is not a super human trait. It’s your duty!
– The Gunfighter’s Prayer
Lord, lord make me fast and accurate.
Let my aim be true and my hand faster
than those who wish to harm me and mine.
Let not my last thought be,
“If only I had my gun”,
If today is truly the day you are to call me home…
Let me die in a pile of brass
