The problem is that we train people here in the U.S. to cower in the face of danger. How many people do you think would have lost their lives if we trained people to attack in this situation? If that guy walked in there and started shooting and everyone jumped up and rushed him and got him down, there would have been a whole lot less deaths. I am sure that he would have paniced.
I am in no way belittling the people that were in that theatre and my heart goes out to each and everyone one of them. How can you blame them when that is what they are taught to do. In an active shooter situation, people without guns are taught to escape and hide. All that does is make him/her have to find you before they kill you.
No one wants to die, but I would gladly give my life so that that little 6 year old kid could have enjoyed the rest of his.
My sentiments exactly. This" hugy hugy....kissy kissy" culture that has been created in the US sucks. Our kids are taught that law enforcement will protect them and there is no need for them to learn to protect themselves. What a bunch of crap!
If only one other person in that theatre had been armed and within range lives would have been saved. Then to hear the media start flapping their lips about gun control....just ticks me off!
