Four years ago one of the San Bernardino scum suckers (not to be mentioned by name, but it was the one who did not wear a sack over its face) and his neighbor and fellow follower of the “RELIGION OF PEACE” planned a series of attacks in California and then decided not to carry them out.
Basically they intended to throw bombs into a Gun Free Zone full of adolescents and young adults, then scurry like rats to their car and drive to a previously chosen site on one of the local Freeways. Once there, one scum sucker (aka SS) would stay up in the hills to shoot at the first responders (law enforcement and ambulance personal) and the second SS would throw bombs into the eastbound lanes to stop traffic. Once the traffic had stopped the bomb throwing SS** would walk among the stopped cars and shoot as many helpless victims as it could.
Not a bad plan. Though anyone with a IQ above room temperature could think of several improvements.
I personally would plan on living a long happy life, while married to someone who did not want, or need to, wear a sack over her face. That, and raise my children as best I could. I think that would prove that my culture/life style/religion/philosophy of life is equal or superior to anyones. After all “Living Well is the best Revenge”. However and for whatever reason, they proved un-equal to that challenge.
No matter, their plan is an absolute illustration as to why most everyone who can should carry a gun at all times. Not only should they carry a defensive handgun (and extra ammo) but they should also have a rifle in their truck or car (that and a good understanding of the difference between “Cover” and “Concealment”).
As I wrote to a friend of mine last week:
Pretty much any time you need it is by definition a SHTF situation. The pistol gets me out and to the truck (I hope) and the truck has the gun and the gas to get me home (or to pick up K** or M***** as the case may be).
If I can take out Johnny Jihad good, I’m not hunting for him (unless he comes to MY HOUSE) I’m just going to try and ensure that my family and myself are safe.
The Pistol, Rifle, and Truck are tools to help me do that.
Given the plans these little wankers were dreaming up, a “Truck Gun” should be on your EDC*** list for your car/truck.
The truck gun, along with your handgun, is just a tool to help you escape and survive. Having one is important, but just as important, if not more, is knowing how and when to use it. In the worst case, it will at least give you a chance to die fighting on your feet (speaking metaphorically) rather then whimpering and on your knees. The next best case is that you are able to let your loved ones flee while you keep Johnny Jihad’s head down. If you are really lucky the SS’s will respond to return fire like most mass shooters do. Most of them try and suck start their own firearms when they encounter resistence. Don’t count on it though.
With the plan they had, and if they were competent at all, they would probably have run up a a very impressive number of casualty’s among the unsuspecting students and drivers. However one, or more, concealed carriers among their selected victims could possibly have ruined their day and then, if they had had a rifle, they could have engaged the second SS when/if he made his presence known. If you don’t think that would be effective look up what happened in Texas in 1966. Police and armed civilians returned fire and helped prevent more casualties.
Do I think most people will carry? No.
Do I wish more people would? Yes.
Do I think our would be “Lords and Masters” want the people to carry and be able to defend themselves? No, actually I don’t.
1) “If you trust the government you obviously failed history class.”****
2) Have a gun and know how to use it.
3) Have a plan and be ready to implement it.
4) You and only you are responsible for your own safety. By actual law the .Gov is not.
I think that Theodore Roosevelt said it best.
There is but one answer to be made to the dynamite bomb, and that can best be made with the Winchester rifle. Though I, for one, would rather have an AR-15 over a Winchester.
* Assuming you are willing to learn how to shoot, a task that is well within the capability of anyone who can drive a stick shift and chew gum at the same time.
** Also known as a “Target” but only if your are armed.
