Tell me the truth. Doesn't this sound like the instructions you would give to first graders? Instructions on how to hide? Instructions on how and where to run away? I guess to them we're all children now - and probably always were.
All this may be good advice. Although if there is anyone out there so stupid that they didn't already know it, I doubt this video can help them. It may even represent the smart thing to do. But I know for certain that I could never do it. I am not an Eloi, and I never will be.
Believe me when I say this, I'm no hero. But if someone were going room to room shooting innocent civilians, I couldn't run away. I couldn't hide while the gunshots echoed around me. It's not a matter of bravery or some sort of 'macho' fantasy that liberals would probably accuse me of. It's nothing like that. Believe me when I say this, I have absolutely nothing to prove. I've been in life threatening situations before, so I know that I'd probably be absolutely terrified the whole time.
But if I didn't stand and fight, then I could never look myself in the mirror again. I'm a man. A civilized man. Men don't cower under the table while madmen prey on the innocent. They don't run away and save themselves while abandoning others to their fate. It isn't the world I was born in, and I refuse to surrender my self respect to the whims of a world where the 'run away and save yourself' morality is defined by progressives.
I wouldn't put myself between a shooter and others because I want to prove something. I wouldn't do it because I wanted to be seen as a hero. I'd do it because I could never live with myself if I didn't.
This is the real reason that I and the people like me should be allowed (actually - encouraged) to carry a firearm with me everywhere I go. Because when armed civilized men show up, things are safer than they were before they got there.
