There is a Story afoot . . .



A story has attacked me . . . not sure where it's from, but I have been posting chapters as they come out of my fingers. Yes, I am still posting on firearms training and my new topic of basic prepping - all links are to the right of the blog, newest posts first on the lists. Feel free to ignore the story posts - they usually start with a chapter number. But, feel free to read the story as well and comment on it - I like how it's turning out so far! Links to the various chapters are at the right under . . .

A Reminder – Of Course It Will Happen Again . . . .

 

The day after the Aurora theater shooting I shared some thoughts about such an event happening again . . . . .  now, the Clackamas Mall Shooting in Portland.  A great many similarities there with the small blessing the shooter killed himself.

I will simply link to my thoughts – for they are the same for this shooting and will remain so for the next . . . .

This is what evil does . . . . and it will surely raise it’s head again down the road.  For today, our prayers are with the families of the victims, their loss is irreplaceable . . .

For the rest of us – wear your damn gun, train, prepare . . . .

because it will happen again . . . .

    1. Hopefully they changed their minds . . . . .

      Parking lot/ramp attacks are a growing symptom of the fringes of society becoming more and more frayed. I wish I could see a reverse trend in the offing - sadly, I can't. Glad you and your wife were protected.

  2. Sadly enough, this just proves that gun laws, gun controls, and gun-free zones actually work. Nobody who obeys the law were armed and in a position to stop this before it got out of hand. Soo...where are the Brady Bunch and all their ilk celebrating this "victory" of theirs tonight? Because this is exactly what they wanted.

    1. Yep - you would think it would be so simple. Those that obey the law will, regardless. Those that don't . . . . won't. Hard lessons sir, hard lessons.

    1. Yep, appears so . . . . seem to be a number of similarities in his personal state of mind as well.

  4. Here in NC I can't have my gun in a theater (or anywhere they charge admission), but in a mall I can (and do). Thankfully I've never had cause to use it; I pray that it will always be so but at least I have it if I need it.

    1. It is a continual wonder that some folks think a simply sign will protect their customers . . . . pure folly. And, I will join you - pray neither of us will ever draw in self defense . . . . but plan to continue to carry a weapon each and every day!
