While there are myriad lessons that can be drawn from the heinous attack in Christchurch, the one at the forefront of my mind is that being armed is part of being prepared.
Real life is not Utopia, it is an experience where decent people are constantly under threat by people with bad intentions. And evil can strike wherever you are, whether that is in a school or university, a church, mosque, or synagogue, or a night club in Paris or a music concert in Las Vegas. Evil can strike at the gas station or the grocery store, at the restaurant or coffee shop, even at your home.
Evil - Part
You cannot choose where evil will strike, you can only choose to be prepared when it does. And being armed is part of being prepared.
Did you know the man who attacked and killed 26 people at Sandy Hook Elementary had over nine minutes of unarmed resistance in which to carry out his heinous deeds?
Did - Attacker - People - New - Zealand
Did you know the attacker who killed 49 people in New Zealand had nearly 40 minutes before police caught up with him? The Wall Street Journal puts the exact figure at 36 minutes.
Each minute would certainly feel like an eternity for unarmed innocents in a shelter-in-place scenario.
Inhumanity - Innocents - Means - Left - Profile
Despite the inhumanity of trapping innocents without a means to shoot back, when the left swoops in after a high profile shooting they always bring the same message–more gun control. But it should be evident by now that gun control actually contributes to the chaos and carnage. It does this by rendering innocents defenseless, thereby providing a target-rich environment for attackers.
And more gun control also increases our dependency upon police, although police are rarely present to prevent crime. Rather, they arrive after the report of a crime has been called in.
