“The answer is for more good people to own guns making it less likely a coward would attack a soft target because of return fire. Bad people will always find a way.” —commenter JimTDavis at Gab
“Socialist dictator Hugo Chavez initially ran a months-long amnesty program encouraging Venezuelans to trade their arms for electrical goods. That year, there were only 37 recorded voluntary gun surrenders, while the majority of seizures – more than 12,500 – were by force.”
Now, as Venezuelans flee and the state crumbles, no arms are legally obtainable.
“A former gun store owner inside Venezuela – who told Fox News he has now been relegated to only selling fishing supplies since the ban – said he can’t sell any type of weaponry – even a slingshot – and underscored that even BB ammunition and airsoft guns are only issued to police and military officers. The punishment for illicit carrying or selling a weapon now is 20 years behind bars.”

I was wrong, in an earlier post, saying that “little Beto…[took] a whipping” in the mid-terms. Instead, he came close to beating Cruz. I guess a lot of Texans (or else newbies from Mexifornia) want gun control, an end to fracking, open borders and Medicare for all.
That’s scary, but that’s what Beto the fake Mexican stood for, among other lefty issues. And with his $70 million from California and New York backers and the Mediacrats backing he came within 2.6 points of winning. If the east and west coasts can buy interior elections, that’s bad news for everyone.

Nobody character actor James Cromwell is the latest liberal to warn of “blood in the streets” if Democrats don’t win the midterm elections in seven days.
“If we don’t stop [President Trump] now, then we will have a revolution for real. Then there will be blood in the streets.”
Liberal blood, most likely. They forget that we deplorables have the guns and know how to use them. A liberal revolution wouldn’t last a week.

Or hide under something.
That’s the advice from PJMedia gun columnist Jeff Sanders on dealing with an active shooter. Of course it’s easy to say what you should do. Only when confronted (by surprise!) can you know what you would do.
“MOVE!…Keep moving and you will increase your chances of survival. And if you run away, you will become a smaller target. The worst thing to do is stand still.”
Or shelter in place as the current official advice has it. Disperse. Run for your lives. The perp is likely a lousy shot and there’s nothing harder than hitting a moving target, as soldiers learn in combat.
“So… remember to do something, anything, to throw off the attacker’s plans. If dozens of people are running away in dozens of directions at the same time, he cannot focus on all of you.”
If you must shelter in place, barricade the door with something heavy. Or tie a tie or a belt around the doorknob and hold it at an angle from the door which makes entry impossible. If you must, fight back. Throw something at him, distract him. He’s very likely a coward to begin with who is not expecting a fight.
