Citizen Considerations and Equipment for Active Shooter Response

Some thoughts on my equipment selection and considerations regarding active shooting events.

Citizen Considerations and Equipment for Active Shooter Response ​Additional side note. Consider your everyday attire, dress in a way that is common for your area/ region you will be in. Consider wearing footwear that isn’t screaming tactical but also...


WZTV FOX 17 News, Nashville

It's never been about the issue of safety for these kids out protesting. It's the look at me generation jumping on to the next big Facebook challenge. Virtue signaling is all this generation can muster. Their virtue is tied directly to the number of likes and shares their actions might generate. It's not about doing something because it's the right thing to do. rather, it's about doing something that gains them attention, accolades, or fame. F**k them. Not an ounce of empathy for a single one of them. Bullying, spitefulness, hatred, deceitfulness, breaking the law, is their usual and normal daily actions. On social media they say all the things that make them seem virtuous but it's merely just for the attention.

No one needs fighting dogs, or military dogs and especially NOT those damn vicious Hounds!

[03/09/18]   "The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing. Indeed, I would go so far as to say that the supply of arms to the underdogs is a sine qua non for the overthrow of any sovereignty. So let’s not have any native militia or native police."

Franklin Regional High School stabbing - Wikipedia

No one is marching for the ban on knives yet knives kill more people per year than rifles. 2016, Rifles 374, Knives 1604.

Governor Tom Corbett stated "I am stunned by the senseless tragedy at Franklin Regional High School. Our schools should be places where children can learn and grow without fear of violence"

That doesn't seem like a real-world view of learning and growing. Acknowledgment of risk doesn't mean we have to live in fear. Fear, the hair standing up on the back of our neck is an instinct we have honed over thousands of years. Fear helps us survive. We are creating a false sense of security. Telling kids that schools should always be safe and banning fi****ms will create that safety is a false narrative. Telling kids that they shouldn't fear anything at school is a line of s**t. Kids these days destroy each other on social media, within their own peer groups, physical bullying, cyberbullying, violent crime, these are everyday occurrences in our schools yet they don't make headlines. Kids in schools young adults in college, people, in general, are far too sheltered. Unless something has happened to them personally they feel the risk of harm, violence or criminal activity is non-existent. They say things like, "I don't go to that side of town", "I wouldn't put myself in that situation", "I have nothing of value anyone would want from me". These are example statements of future victims. The Franklin Regional High School stabbing was a mass stabbing that occurred on April 9, 2014, at Franklin Regional High School in Murrysville, Pennsylvania. Alex Hribal, a 16-year-old sophomore at the school, used a pair of eight-inch kitchen knives to stab and slash 20 students and a security guar...


Louder with Crowder

You are racist and a fascist if you disagree with their tactics and message.

Steven Crowder | Time to get personal here, Facebook. I, and the team at LouderWithCrowder need your help. This is by far the biggest video we've ever done. We've worked for months, tirelessly to infiltrate Antifa. You'll see not only how violent and premeditated their violence is... but how shocking the media silence is.
All the footage is there! Antifa, on camera, handing my producer deadly weapons, discussing violent tactics. All of it is there, with more footage to come. We actually handed our footage over to local detectives who subsequently used it to assist some arrests. Officers, thank you for your service!
But here's the real kicker. We offered the footage you see to multiple news sources. These reporters were there WHILE cops were confirming its authenticity, and they walked away! They chose not to cover any of it. This is not a conspiracy. The media does not want you to know the truth about Antifa. It's a total media black out.
I need you to help break through the media blackout of Antifa. I need you to help us get the truth out there. Please share, like, comment and send this as far and wide as you can. Let's put a nail in Antifa's coffin and expose both them, and the media for the extremists they are.
We are also fighting an uphill battle with Facebook, Youtube and social media. If you want to see more content like this, if you want to ensure a continued TRUE alternative media, you can join #MugClub at . We very much need and appreciate your support.

Sergeant First Class Nick Freitas, 1st Special Forces Group

For several days now, some Democrats in the Virginia House of Delegates have made public speeches comparing those of us who take our oath to the Constitution seriously, to include the 2nd Amendment, to N***s and segregationists.

This is my response:

Florida school shooter’s AR-15 may have jammed, saving lives: report

"Cruz went in with only 10-round magazines because larger clips would not fit in his duffel bag, Book said."

"Had Cruz used high-capacity magazines, he would not have had to reload as frequently. That’s the reason Rubio is reconsidering his position on the the sale of high-capacity magazines, according to DeFede."

Rubio is considering banning "high capacity magazines" because the death toll could have been even higher. The firearm also apparently jammed.

You can't make this s**t up. Nikolas Cruz’s gun may have jammed as he shot up Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland. The weapons malfunction could have saved lives. 02/27/2018

House Democrats introduce bill prohibiting sale of semi-automatic weapons

And here it comes.

The bill prohibits the “sale, transfer, production, and importation” of semi-automatic rifles and pistols that can hold a detachable magazine, as well as semi-automatic rifles with a magazine that can hold more than 10 rounds. Additionally, the legislation bans the sale, transfer, production, and importation of semi-automatic shotguns with features such as a pistol grip or detachable stock, and ammunition feeding devices that can hold more than 10 rounds.

Amazing. Every word of what you just said... Was wrong.

"I'm a gun owner. I know guns. My family's a gun family going way back. But these weapons - AR-15 and similar weapons - are not for sporting purposes."

Story --

[02/24/18]   So many in our society say they feel unsafe. They cite numerous subjective personal ideas which they indicate as making them feel unsafe. To further that, these same people begin to use their subjective stance on fear and of being safe as a platform for change and oppressing real Constitutional Rights.

Many who hold irrational feelings of being unsafe adamantly disagree with those with opposite views. This is their right to have differing views but often the case, they now denounce the person with opposing views as hate mongers, supporters of murder, crazy psychopaths. The freedom from fear is an irrational belief of a person who believes their individual feelings are the only thing that matters. Infringement on Rights and Liberties are not considered in their rationalization of changes that must be made in order to provide for their level of subjective and usually ineffective safety.

Sheltering those who don't have the self-confidence required to embrace fear and uncertainty is not acceptable. Because someone else is uncomfortable is not a reason to alter what I do or say. Living by my morals and beliefs, following the rule of law, providing for my family both emotionally and physically is my right and my duty. I am responsible for evaluating risk as it pertains to those I love. I am responsible for educating my children about risk and not sheltering them from it. Fear is healthy, fear guides us. fear should not paralyze us, it should motivate us to find solutions, to examine our personal environment and mitigate those identified risks. I don't expect others to change because their views make me uncomfortable, I won't change nor be swayed by those who believe their freedom from fear out-weighs my rights.

We don't have a right that provisions us to feel safe. We don't have a right that provisions us to be safe. We do have an obligation to be kind, to impart kindness to each other, be moral and loving humans. The evil in our world will constantly test us, Evil will enact violence and hate and strife upon us. We individually are responsible for dealing with those challenges, learning from them and overcoming them. My self-protection is my responsibility. The protection of my children is my responsibility.


[02/23/18]   Stop giving mass shooters the exposure and publicity. The media is one of the influential element that provides the pedestal for these disturbed individuals to amplify the hurt and fear and outrage they are seeking to impart to others. In some cases their behaviors seem to have small beginnings on social media, garnering outrage at pictures published, and statements made. The media seems to provide the deranged person another tool to increases the reach, to amplify the pain and impact of their rage. The deranged knows that they can physically impact a small number but it will emotionally impact millions once picked up by all the news agencies. it seems natural for the offender to do something so heinous as to garner national or world stage because they want everyone to know how they are feeling or felt, how badly wronged they were. Their cause, their name, their ideas will live on well after they are killed or incarcerated. The offender should be oblivioni traditæ 02/23/2018

Every Single Government Authority Failed In Parkland. And They Expect Americans To Forfeit Our Self-Defense Rights To Them?

So many indicators, so many opportunities to step in and prevent a clear and real danger to others. Complete failure at the Federal and local levels. On Thursday night, the American public learned two bombshell pieces of information regarding the Parkland, Florida mass shooting.


But it was for the safety of the kids... Oh you mean you needed attention and internet hugs.Virtue signaling for stricter gun laws and to ban fi****ms step one. Feign concern for a popular social issue that was never important to you until it became popular. Step two, record your feigned concern. Step three, commit a felony by creating an unlawful short barreled rifle...all while being recorded.

The Gift of Valor

United States Army

For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty:
Specialist Salvatore A. Giunta distinguished himself conspicuously by gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty in action with an armed enemy in the Korengal Valley, Afghanistan, on October 25, 2007. While conducting a patrol as team leader with Company B, 2d Battalion (Airborne), 503d Infantry Regiment, Specialist Giunta and his team were navigating through harsh terrain when they were ambushed by a well-armed and well-coordinated insurgent force. While under heavy enemy fire, Specialist Giunta immediately sprinted towards cover and engaged the enemy. Seeing that his squad leader had fallen and believing that he had been injured, Specialist Giunta exposed himself to withering enemy fire and raced towards his squad leader, helped him to cover, and administered medical aid. While administering first aid, enemy fire struck Specialist Giunta’s body armor and his secondary weapon. Without regard to the ongoing fire, Specialist Giunta engaged the enemy before prepping and throwing grenades, using the explosions for cover in order to conceal his position. Attempting to reach additional wounded fellow soldiers who were separated from the squad, Specialist Giunta and his team encountered a barrage of enemy fire that forced them to the ground. The team continued forward and upon reaching the wounded soldiers, Specialist Giunta realized that another soldier was still separated from the element. Specialist Giunta then advanced forward on his own initiative. As he crested the top of a hill, he observed two insurgents carrying away an American soldier. He immediately engaged the enemy, killing one and wounding the other. Upon reaching the wounded soldier, he began to provide medical aid, as his squad caught up and provided security. Specialist Giunta’s unwavering courage, selflessness, and decisive leadership while under extreme enemy fire were integral to his platoon’s ability to defeat an enemy ambush and recover a fellow American soldier from the enemy. Specialist Salvatore A. Giunta’s extraordinary heroism and selflessness above and beyond the call of duty are in keeping with the highest traditions of military service and reflect great credit upon himself, Company B, 2d Battalion (Airborne), 503d Infantry Regiment, and the United States Army.
