Apparently, shootings are only newsworthy when a redneck tea party conservative crazed liberal kills a slew of people.  However, when a common citizen uses a gun to save themselves or others, it’s a snoozefest from the media talking heads.  The latest example appears below, via The Minority Report…

As I usually state, leftists would prefer that both of these men be dead. If they achieved their goals, the son would have no gun. The criminal, who isn’t following the law anyway, would possess a gun and would have easily killed both men, and gotten away.

And, in the aftermath of such crimes, the leftists would propose even more laws to correct the problems caused by their last set of laws. Then, rinse and repeat.

Feminism has an orthodoxy, and if you had to sum it up in one sentence…

Anything wrong in the world is the fault of people in possession of a penis. 

What feminism probably misses is the simple observation that since the “sexual revolution,” women, instead of being protected from evil penises, have ended up having encounters with many more of them.  And, sadly, many of those encounters are less than voluntary.  After all, if you “liberate” sex from it’s prior status (as a means to propagate the species in the context of monogamous marriage), you have to loosen moral standards.  And, if you do that, you loosen the moral codes about forcing someone to do something they don’t want to do.   But, they’ll ignore that because it doesn’t fit their narrative.

Frankly, a lot of things don’t their narrative, and since their ideology is rather narrow, when facts or events don’t fit, they try to pound it into place.  However, they look really stupid in the process.  We saw that when they opposed gender selection abortion, because their “rights as women” to kill babies mean that they have to specifically target female babies for extermination.  Because to “protect the rights” of women, you have to target and kill them…get it?

Now, for the latest on this narrow and frankly asinine world view, it seems that advising women to not go out and get drunk to the point of incapacitation is apparently bad, very, very, bad. 

Back in August, when I covered “SlutWalk DC,” I observed:

Date rape is an apparently common campus crime that usually involves two drunk young people, one of whom has an erect penis, and the other of whom is unable to avert what the erect penis typically does.

Of course, feminists would denounce such a statement of fact as a misogynistic expression of “rape culture,” but facts are facts: Alcohol is a significant contributing factor in the incidence of date rape. Leslie Eastman at College Insurrection remarks, “Never let it be said that outraged campus feminists confuse themselves with common sense,” as she highlights a Washington Post column about a recent uproar:

The message of Emily Yoffe’s Slate article about binge drinking and sexual assault on college campuses was as important as it was obvious: The best step that young women can take to protect themselves is to stop drinking to excess.
Young women everywhere — not to mention their mothers — ought to be thanking Yoffe. Instead, she’s being pilloried.
A “rape denialism manifesto” full of “plain old victim-blaming,” Lori Adelman wrote on the feminist blog Feministing.com. Erin Gloria Ryan, on Jezebel.com, accused Yoffe of “admonishing women for not doing enough to stop their own rapes.”

Larry Jackson, at Political Realities also has some observations…

There is a real and present danger that is inherent anytime someone drinks alcohol, especially when it is done to such excess, as we see when binge drinking is involved. Emily Yoffe has been severely criticized as someone who is waging a war on women, all because she is trying to point out how many sexual assaults could be prevented. She isn’t saying the victims of sexual assault are to blame for their plight, but does try to explain how they can stop some of these sexual assaults from taking place.

Doesn’t it make more sense to be able to prevent rape and sexual assault, rather than have to catch the perpetrators after the fact? Telling them the facts and warning them of the danger does not constitute a war on women.All it will take is for the young women to realize the danger they are placing themselves in, when they fall into the crowd and start drinking themselves into oblivion.

Both Stacy and Larry point out things that should be blatantly obvious to anyone.  Drinking excessively doesn’t eliminate the ability to consent, but it does drastically reduce one’s ability to enforce that decision.  If you are unconscious, or unable to walk, let alone resist an overly amorous person with a penis, the more chances that the penis in question doing something that you do not want.  Does that excuse the person with a penis?  Of course not.  No means no.  The entire point is to avoid the situation entirely but maintaining control of one’s self.

In reality, this is all about risk-management.  If I tell a woman that a great way to avoid being attacked and raped in a parking lot late at night is to park as close to the store as possible, and under a light, is that some rape-apologist bit?  Of course not!  If I tell her to have her keys out when she leaves the store, so she doesn’t have to take time searching  for them when she arrives at her vehicle, is that facilitating the mythical “rape culture?”  Absolutely not!  If I tell her that not getting p*ss drunk is going to decrease her chances of having an non-consensual encounter with a penis, is that a an evil statement?  It is, if you’re a feminist.  But, then again, their ideology is as divorced from reality as any branch of regressiveism, so we ought not be surprised.

6 Ways to Help Prevent School Shootings

Share

Perhaps it is the policy advisor in me, or the fact that I get really upset thinking that my five children may not be properly protected while in school, or I all the calls to ‘do something’, have gotten to me- so here are six ways to help prevent school shootings, as suggested by a conservative teacher with a degree in public policy from a top east-coast school:

  1. Allow more guns in schools. Lost in the school shooting tragedy has been the news from the other tragedy, the shooting at the mall. There only two people were tragically murdered by an evil person, because as the coward attempted to reload his gun he was confronted with an armed citizen who pulled out his own gun. The shooter’s next move was to take his own life, rather than continue his rampage and kill more innocent people. But at the school shooting, much like other school shootings that have taken place over the last several years, the scum was able to wander the school killing innocent people without any fear of being gunned down himself, because in both his fantasy world and in the real world he had no one would could oppose him. If there were more guns in schools- not less- than school shootings would not have the death tolls that we are seeing today.
  2. Armed administration. Law-abiding citizens who go through extensive training programs and considerable background checks should be able to legally carry and defend school children from evil people who would do them harm, and this should be part of an administrator’s job description. The man who runs the gas station up the street carries a piece; the manager at many job sits carries or is legally able to carry; and so administration in our schools should be allowed and trained to carry firearms. I’m not suggesting that we just pass out guns to teachers- they should go through teacher specific training, spend considerable amount of time in the range, have the proper background checks, and then have continual updates and training programs. Put guns in the hand of administrators- or at least make sicko’s think that they do- and there will be less school shootings purely because of the deterrence factor. See this article for more.
  3. Push for every high school to have a police school liaison officer. A Police School Liaison Officer is a law enforcement officer assigned to the school. The purpose of having a PSLO at school is to assist the school in maintaining a safe environment for students, staff, and visitors. The PSLO interacts positively with students to gain confidence and trust. Students who choose illegal behaviors are held accountable by the PSLO through referrals to Social Service or citations. The PSLO actively supports the schools policy to discipline student behavior that threatens the health or safety of others. Funding for this program should be secured and and every school district should have one of these people in every high school, and perhaps another one split between the middle schools as well. I know that for elementary schools this sort of cost could not be justified- but at least high schools and maybe middle schools should be part of this program.
  4. Better lock-down drills. At my school district, our principal sends out an email to the whole staff letting us know when a lock-down drill will occur, that information is passed on to students, we run the drill and most teachers continue their teaching without change, and afterwards we receive no feedback. We practice the lock-down procedure in our school as if it is a joke- and when we really need to lock-down in reality I can only hope that the results will not be a joke. Lock down drills are important, and I hope that after the last several school shootings that principals around the nation will take them seriously and run them properly- unannounced, as if for real, calling in the SWAT teams, and providing feedback to teachers after the drill. Even the drills themselves need some work- there should be multiple locations to call for lock-down not one exposed PA system, for example. Better lock down drills might save lives.
  5. Building improvements. The MEA President was right about one thing- buildings need to be improved to protect students better. First change that needs to occur is that efforts must be made to limit access to buildings. Perhaps this will cost some money, but access to school children should be more tightly controlled than current ‘open door’ policy in schools, so school should redesign their main entrance ways to control the flow of visitors better. Second change that needs to occur is that doors need to be strengthened and locks need to be able to withstand some real blows from a psycho who may be trying to enter the door. Administration has keys and the fire and police have real ways of entering doors, but the little lock I have on my door into a hole in the door frame isn’t going to stop someone from busting in and gunning us all down. Simple and effective improvements to school buildings, although costing a little bit of money, can improve student safety in our schools.
  6. Training for staff. Professional development days for staff and administration should include time and training for self-defense, disarming attackers, how to hide effectively, where to run, locating safe areas in the school, and other measures to address staff and student safety. We are not trained or required to be trained, and these sorts of skills are as important to our professional development and safety as some of the other training that we have received over the skills. I’m not suggesting that we all learn how to be ninjas or anything- just once a year we get an hour or so to maybe get up and practice some techniques or take a tour of the school or get some other needed training that could save our lives and possibly the lives of the children in our schools.

Above I have laid out six constructive policies that can be implemented at the state level to address school shootings- I only hope that our nation goes beyond mere ‘discussions’ on taking guns away from law-abiding citizens and begins to seriously take real steps to protect staff and students.

Mass Shooting at Santikos Mayan 14 Movie Theater Prevented by Armed Citizen:

Share

Here’s another story that isn’t likely to show up on the MSM.  An off duty sheriff’s deputy, working at the Santikos Mayan 14 movie theaters  stopped a would be mass shooter before they even got into the venue. Soopermexican has more…

From WOAI [emphasis added]:

Two people are hospitalized after a gunman chased terrified restaurant patrons into the lobby of the Santikos Mayan 14 movie theater during a showing of “The Hobbit” last night, 1200 WOAI news reprots [sic].

 Police detectives and sheriff’s investigators say the incident started in the China Garden Restaurant on Southwest Military Drive about 9 PM Sunday, when an employee of the restaurant walked in looking for a woman.

When the woman, who officials say is also a restaurant employee, wasn’t there, the man pulled a gun and attempted to open fire in the restaurant but his weapon jammed.

 ”It started at the restaurant and then went into the parking lot and then into the movie theater,” Deputy Lou Antu told 1200 WOAI news.

 Investigators say some of the terrified restaurant patrons poured into the movie theater, and the gunman followed.

He opened fire, shooting one man in the chest, before Antu says an off duty sheriff’s deputy who was working security at the theater shot him once.

Wow, this has several angles that go against the narrative. First, the shooting was stopped by another citizne with a gun, and second, the perpetrator is hispanic.

We’ll see if this gets covered at all.
