Mass Shootings – Enough with the Live Practice Drills, Let's Get Serious on Defense

USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Perhaps law-enforcement and politicians should analyze these shootings as Live Practice Drills to see what the common elements are, and to see what they can do to minimize the occurrence of these horrible events.

Recently, even a location (Gilroy Garlic Festival in Northern CA) that had a fence and metal detector weapons screening for attendees became a non-gun-free-zone when a criminal cut through a portion of the fence and entered with a rifle. Even with a security and police presence, he managed to kill three and wound thirteen.

So much for signs and fences.

The only reason I can think of that these shootings will keep occurring as often as they do, is that perhaps politicians require more and more such practice drills to help push an anti-gun rights agenda.

The evil-doers certainly are giving much political hay to those who would bit-by-bit strip American citizens of our right of self-defense. Even Democrats who once pussy-footed away from any statement directly pointing toward confiscation are now starting to trumpet that we need mandatory “buy-backs”. Sorry, but my guns are not for sale. I politely decline your offer.

Instead of punishing the vast majority of us who are peaceful and lawful gun owners and carriers, the focus should be on preventing criminals from having the current “success” that they do.

I have an idea for prevention:

If there's a large festival, put up signs stating that legal firearms carry is welcome. And instead of a few rotund officers walking around with pistols, have a few posted up high with sniper rifles to take down any crazed or terrorist sniper or armed fence runner.

Stone Mountain Park had law-enforcement snipers (saw them with my own eyes) on top of their Memorial Hall building for their last July 4th Fireworks Special. Good for them for getting serious with real defensive measures. And I was there among the huge crowd openly carrying my holstered self-defense firearm, as is legal to do there if you have a Georgia Weapons License, or a license from another state that's recognized in a reciprocal agreement.

Unfortunately there is no limit it seems, to the amount of innocent bloodshed Democrat and RINO politicians will accept, in order to push for more restrictions on our rights.

We need real men and women to step up and say we've had enough of Live Practice Drills. We already know what we need to know to greatly reduce the frequency of mass shootings, and to greatly reduce the damage from them when they do occur.

The answer is more liberty, not less. We good citizens far outnumber mass murderers. Making targets less attractive and less victim-rich will make more of us safe.

Ruben, when all the videos were being played right after the incident I was discussing it with a friend of mine who is a desert storm vet that Had a bump stock and owns a Full Auto AR15 and I have fired both of them, both agreed that what was being fired was definitely Full Auto and not a bump stock. Now I don’t have the experience he has with him seeing combat but like I said I’ve fired both of his and a few other FA rifles in my time, I definitely agree that what was being fired that… Read more »

When you have nuts out there like PETA members and Vegans and other groups who believe that any harm to an animal is absolutely to be avoided at any cost, how can you expect the idea of using deadly force routinely on humans to be accepted by the masses (sheeple)? I agree that the best way to stop repeat pedophiles and sex offenders is summary execution before they repeat, and that most criminals need to be put down quickly and effectively immediately upon capture, but I’m old (and old school) and believe in full accountability of humans for their actions,… Read more »

Funny how they always happen to be conducting live drills everytime an incident happens. Just like on 9/11 — a training exercise was being done at the exact same time as the attack, delaying the actual response from the Air Force. Just like at the Boston Marathon in 2013, they were doing a drill during the actual attack.

Fishy as hell. While politicians have gun owners up in arms about Red Flags, nobody’s asking about False Flags. Like the Vegas shooting, which the feds continue to cover up to this day.

Sound of the gunfire from the cell phone video is around 650 RPM, to slow for a bump stock and uninterrupted. A bump stock will go full tilt at 900 RPM with an experienced user, even without one the AR will do 900 RPM just by bump firing. The 650 RPM is the low end firing rate of the M249 Light Machine Gun with 100 round belts. 30 seconds to change belts and cool the barrel between bursts. Maybe that’s why it is a coverup. FBI gave him the machine gun and removed all the evidence after the shooting. Jus’… Read more »

Funny part is I watched a video of the helicopter flying around there at the time. The rate of fire matched the light coming from the helicopter. Not sure if the video is still available.
