“A guy with a .22 got a bunch of people and had them line up and wait for their bullet to the back of the head. “
Va Tech shooter. Nobody stood up to him, they just lined up like sheep (this is what the firearms instructor recommends). The only guy that tried to do anything was a 70-year old holocaust survivor and he saved a bunch of lives.
I’m not the toughest guy in the world but I’ll be danged if I’m gonna stand there and wait my turn to take a bullet.
Like I said, waiting for it in the back of the head is about the only way you will get a guaranteed kill shot.
Whoever recommends compliance with a gunman is an absolute idiot and should NEVER be involved in instructing the public on safety.
You are safer running towards or away from the gun than in compliance with the gunman.
I mean when he is going down the line and kills the first three people, and you are the fourth.......
The psychology of the situation is just amazing to me.
“The psychology of the situation is just amazing to me.”
I will say, though, that many people freeze in a situation like that. Their mind turns off.
I believe the reason is that they have not thought through in their mind what they would do in that situation, which is what most self-defense courses (with or without guns) teach.
I had Karate classes from 12-14. I never knew just how much it was ingrained in me until years later I was blocking punching and putting a guy in an arm lock without even thinking about it.
That is why “training” someone to comply with a gunman is so idiotic. Train them to run away, or run towards; never comply.
Thanks! I signed up in 2000, “Lurkedalot” before that but the greeting is still appreciated.
It was both a leap of faith and a dream fulfilled to get out that pit (and even worse I was in SANTA CRUZ!!!) but one I won’t regret. It’s beautiful out here, people have manners and mean it...I could go on and on. LOL I almost felt like a felon walking out of Academy Sporting Goods w/13ers for my G21SF.
I feel like I live in America again
I actually do believe this guy was a former military/cop man.
Many start to see the world as a “Us vs Them” type thing. The idea of a civilian armed is shocking and a threat.

Your bodyguards disarm first, ok?
Crickets from the hyper-hypocritical Left.
Unreasonably high bar.
"Better than a cop" should be achievable.
Yea he is. I do not read his articles. Full of bull.
Dissect one or two for us dullards? This Lyons item, is,
BTW a classic of the genre.
