    In a discussion on freerepublic.com   about the Navy Yard active shooter situation, MacMattico posted this response about how the children in his daughter's school responded to an active shooter exercise: First week of school, my daughter's entire school was put on “lockdown”.

    The hero that emerged from the most recent Seattle gun story is Lawrence, the brave fellow who threw a bar stool at Ian Stawicki to stop a bloody massacre at Cafe Racer. Lawrence was sitting in the Seattle coffee bar, a gathering place for artists and other alternative types, when Ian Stawicki walked through the door just before 11 a.m. May 30. It is unfortunate that most alternative lifestyle types in Seattle choose to be unarmed. It would have only taken one or two armed musicians to stop much of the carnage. Lawrence had a brother murdered in the attack...
