    true. and IPFW is right as well… you could send our kids to ANY other country and they would quickly learn how great they have it.

    i’d like the freakanomics guys to look at this… i think the problems have increased since God was stripped from the classrooms, NOT specifically because of the religious component, but because we stopped teaching our kids that civilization, that community, that this nation are a responsibility and they have to contribute to that.

    instead, kids come to believe that the world owes them, that everything revolves around them, and when confronted with reality bad things happen.

    what adult male faced with his wife– not just a girlfriend– cheating is not able to grasp that things are over, and procede with picking up the pieces and starting over? Oh wait, there are thousands of stunted American adults who think just like this kid did.

    THAT is the problem, but guns will be the focus of ‘what needs to be solved.’

    sad that this little monster was such an effective killer… head wounds to innocent kids who had called him friend… tragic.

    and prayers and thanks to the teacher whose intervention likely saved other lives.

    east, you’re a week early… check the detectors whenever the clocks change.

    the little device that breaks up emboli in vessels are powered by either 9v or 4 or 8 AA batteries. they’re single use devices so my interventional radiologist partner always poaches the batteries at the end of the exam. we have drawers of them in the read room. oh yeah, but there are also outlets, and jacks on the computers that charge… c est la vie.

    MB, just finished mine…
    there would be a nice bersa CC .380 if not for the freak fire (and 2 extra mags and 50 PD rounds), poncho, shemagh (bandana), crank radio with charge port, tinder, 24 hr rationbar, nalgene metal bottle with matches and filter inside, 25′ paracord, VAS first aid kit with blood stop, money, Hatch sp100 gloves, sabre red pepper gel, leatherman, N95 masks, Dead On Annihilator, and still have room for more in a 5.11 Rush 24 bag. mylar blankets and compressible pull over are on the way. my EDC includes a flashlight and knife, so they aren’t in the bag. found some good Amazon and Kindle resources.

    The bug out bag i started with is heavy on money and self defense. the 72 hour bag is heavy on tools, food, water purification, and clothes.

    all are always works in progress.

    funny the things they keep insisting won’t work are what have been successfully used before, and what they resort to when what they claim is an isolated incident (again and again and again) happens.

    makes believing the other things they claim about the virus and its virulence difficult. and by the time we know if they were lying, the spread parameters may be so wide it cannot be corralled.

    or maybe this is to keep thinking Americans OUT of the polls…

    agree it’s a concern, john, but can be mitigated with the right rounds. and if it’s light out, the AR is a scary platform to see.

    always worry about the firing blind tendencies of a shotgun…you still have to aim it. and bird shot won’t kill. an intruder in our home is not getting a chance to claim any stupid alibi.

    Wood… tlr4 offers a laser and a light rail mounted. the light is bright enough to disorient… i started with a novatac EDC light that when held down strobes… practiced using it alongside the bersa and free hand because of ‘marking’ me. but with kids in the house it seemed best to verify it wasn’t someone sneaking back in…

    for that reason i’ve considered one of the nonlethal variants of ammunition now offered as my first round for the home defense gun. but so far the light is the protective issue along with biometric access.

    the wife and daughter can run their 20g remington 1100′s better than the 12 and you can still throw buckshot rounds if the sound of the first shell chambering is not sufficient disincentive.

    happy is right, as is proverbs.
    but fortunately clearly the audience was not buying the line.
    sad the GOP has not come out with a stronger ad campaign to counter the attempt…
    the ‘what do women make in the White House’ and the blackboard break downs of why the supposed gap is a myth would be a great start to run for 30 seconds during the World Series or Saturday college games.

    then follow with a ‘if you pass a bill guaranteeing ANYTHING based on a person’s sex, by definition you are discriminating against the other sex… or as the Democrats want to call it, ‘waging a war on men.’

    the same should be happening about immigration, the border, quarantines, the irs, the nsa, transparency, obamacare, what looms after the election, gun control, attacks on the first amendment, education.

    because Happy IS right… anything they say is a lie. Show the truth. then stand up for term limits and neutral spending and watch what happens.

    smoke, if you have your eye on the gun, it means you are usually very close to having you natural point of aim at the perpetrator’s head, since presumably they are trying to aim over the top of said firearm… it’s a natural reaction and has inherent benefits (unlike in driving, where following an obstacle can actually lead to your steering toward said danger).

    sad when you have to consider buying AR500 plate for the kids book bags, but we’ve been looking….

  • [6] October 25, 2014 at 1:41am

    All… hope you’re enjoying life as a g’pa.

    i don’t know how the powers that be in DC would engineer a high school shooting, but they will certainly ‘take advantage of the crisis.’

    i see demands for Congressional action on firearms as a means of making the Republicans look bad and more ‘Executive Actions’ in the coming days.

    and of course, it will help push ebola, immigration, and the irs totally off of the front page. nevermind the shaky market, the fact that we are having acts of terror on this President’s watch, and the flail that is our undeclared war with Daesh.

    so i’m voting you’re all right… gang related over cross school dating, to be twisted by the anti-gun crowd into a ‘we must ban guns’ rather than a ‘we must teach our children respect and civics, as well as the danger of and respect for weapons.

    Pax!

  • [11] October 25, 2014 at 1:37am

    amen.
    i’m glad the stupidity of bureaucrats who refuse to see that ‘gun free zones’ don’t work, and that trying to teach children to be afraid of firearms doesn’t protect them did not also get this brave young woman killed.

    i hope she is not plagued by dreams of ‘i caused this.’ the only culpable person is the young man who decided to kill his innocent classmates.

    and thank you Blaze for getting this up… until now, ‘took his own life’ has been the way the story was reported; i hope the MSM rectifies this situation tomorrow.

    so have they reclassified Ft. Hood yet?
    have we closed the border and recoverd our Marine from Mexico yet?
    have we stopped the influx of radicalized immigrants, ‘imams’ and western Africa travelers yet?

    Nope. nothing to see here, just the NYC loonie lefty wanting to maximize federal pay outs to his power base, no real change in attitude.

    when will hatchets be banned in NYC now… and scissors over 6″ and serrated bread knives…

    he wasn’t a martyr, he was a vandal. he’ll get to be one of the virgins for a misguided martyr… and Lucifer will chuckle and move on to the next…

  • [6] October 24, 2014 at 5:40pm

    Byeman, you are right about the risk of knives.
    i assume he was carrying with a round chambered.
    and he had his hand on the firearm, so the delay in activating the draw stroke would have been minimal. and that can be trained out, the hesitation when someone shouts or charges (or both) so hopefully he has endured that.

    it should not have mattered if he HAD drawn his firearm. but he deserves the kudos. he stepped in and saved not one but two lives (at least) when too many would have just left the vicinity.

    this is not a military man on active duty who will fire on his fellow citizens.

    FreeVoice, you are spot on… the woman wants it ‘all to be right’ for the man, but is not offering to repay what she stole after lying by using his name.

    the state is going after the wrong person.

  • [8] October 24, 2014 at 4:30pm

    cue the anti-gun crowd.
    first reporter comment i heard on Fox was a WA area moutpiece ‘another of these crises that have become all too familiar.’

    but he won’t conntect the dots about the dumbing down of school, the removal of God and civics from schools, the growth of psychiatric med use in kids, and an economy forcing more moms and dads both to work. No recognition that sports where no one wins and no one is allowed to cheer and everyone gets a trophy set these kids up for a rude awakening when they reach the real world… hell, when they realize that other kids are cruel.

    Sad that this happened. More sad that political leeches will take advantage of this for the wrong goals.

    but Freak is right, the virus can remain in people’s systems for something like two weeks after resolution of symptoms.

    haven’t heard whether that means continued viral shedding.
    The Blaze report also specified that it was men who could… ahem… emit virus after the fact for a couple weeks, without the reverse being the case.

    if her significant other gets it now, though, BHO will classify it as an STD, not ebola.

    Perhaps while being discharged she has been instructed to stay home for X amount of time.

    Imagine the first patient she approaches now, ‘Hi, I’m your nurse today…’

    Ha, great point, J
    the story wherein a coach gets fined $500.

    and i like the avatar. too many on both sides want to ignore you can have evolution AND a higher power at work.

    all any thinking parent should be hoping for is a healthy kiddo who can grow up in a loving home with all the support and opporunities dedicated parents can provide.

    these parties seem a sad excuse to hold a party, when the pregnancy itself should be reason to celebrate. AND to start the work of parents learning what it means to be a parent.

    there have been some cringeworthy hair styles and clothing choices… last night’s pseudo leather was… I was glad the cameras stayed on a head shot.

    but she does bring on guests from both sides of the aisle and asks both sides hard questions.
    i enjoy the Five and Red Eye as well, though. and even Bill when he’s not tooting his own horn too loudly (which sadly is rare).

    thought i’d be okay with Hannity minus the smarmy Colmes, but the guy endlessly parrots his own talking point for each show, which quickly makes me crazy. Shep always makes me cringe, and the cotton candy sticky sweet morning show is… too cute by more than half.

    i’ve been glad Greta was pushing to get our Marine free in Mexico, and she has some good points, but usually less information and news about the day. And that’s one of the shows where Geraldo drops in to offer his usual misinformation.

    The ‘outnumbered’ show has some promise, but it’s nothing i’d dvr to watch later, and there’s no tv at work, so…

    This doctor sadly seems to echo the MSNBC medical correspondent, confident he couldn’t have the disease he did not think he needed to be quarantined for the period he would have rationally recommended for anyone else possibly exposed. But considering the nation’s leadership and leading medical research arm’s position is that surprising?

  • October 24, 2014 at 11:22am

    Off topic…
    Blaze Mod Michelle et al, the football story has something jacked up so you cannot ad comments, either as replies or de novo…

    could it be another ad spam is causing problems?

    just a heads up.

    what is see is that while the people in charge insist we have nothing to worry about, the men and women they put in charge of manning the PERIMETER of the apartment complex have been told to take precautions.

    don’t bother warning them that those masks basically protect other people from THEIR exhalations; if it is not air tight with a filtered system it only reduces your exposure, it does not prevent it. whoever is making the ‘puffer’ systems used by hospitals had better be ramping up production. when the family flies in a week i’ll have N95 masks for them AND extras, since a coughing passenger wearing a mask better protects me than my wearing that mask…
