Bay Area Law Enforcement Encourages Fighting Back Against Active Shooters
February 21, 2013 12:02 AM

SAN JOSE (KPIX 5)– Law enforcement agencies have begun adopting a new policy on so-called “active shooters,” encouraging civilians to take safety into their own hands and take down gunmen who threaten them at work or school.

This approach is gaining momentum in the wake of tragic incidents in Newtown, Connecticut and the Oikos University shooting in Oakland.

At San Jose Evergreen Community College, police have trained teachers, staff and students to follow specific guidelines during this kind of emergency.

Try being a critical thinker.
Christians most certainly use the Bible to support their beliefs. Where do you suggest they turn?

Liberals utilize liberal websites regularly to support opinions. Is any information reported in my conservative website incorrect?

Try being open-minded.

<quoted text>That's funny, Higs. I see a lot of comments that I've previously made have been incorporated and adopted by you in this post. I suppose I should be flattered.
Yes, water is wet, etc. And?
If you were trying to make a point with this post, I missed it, because you didn't post any of my so-called lies which I could answer. Still, I do understand that you think I'm stupid. I'm crushed.
Progressivism is used today in place of liberalism. It's not a lie when I say I'm a Social liberal. I've said that from day one when asked. But, I'm more conservative fiscally. I'd rather not pay a penny more in taxes of what I've earned than necessary to keep a smoothly functioning society with a safety net. I'm fairly sure most working class Americans feel the same way regardless of their party. Who wants to spend their hard earned money to provide welfare and special tax breaks and deductions to already profitable corporations? What do you call that?
still waiting for your apology for calling me a liar about MY income and how many names I post under... remember that BS?

all I can say is 'OLIGARCHY'....

I said "some" and I said it in light of comments made by several profiles and posts that have since been banned. It was not a broad statement, it was very specific and limited to those individuals that do in fact post such racist material.
Do you think it's wrong to call a child racial slurs Honey?
If you do then I wasn't talking about you and I'm not sure why you seem to have taken offense or why you would be so determined to broaden the scope of what I actually said.
I don't have a side. I'm just me and sooner or later that irritates the hell out of both "sides".
Today it seems to be your turn.
Just wondered. Seems both sides use "they", "them", "those" too loosely sometimes.

I think you probably know I would never call a child a racial slur and do not agree with anyone who does. I would expand that to include never calling an adult a racial slur.

I am not irritated at all Jax. Just passing a lazy day.

Did you see Noel's injury? I was at the Ky/Florida game when it occurred. Terrible!
I think AL said on here she was taking a trip. Heck no...truth would be too much...think about all of that! No, we do not get to see many Ky. games down here but I let your team win in our house-the A&M game played at College Station as you let us win in your house haha!

Do not leave out the WHOLE reason! Please.
And avid gun control advocate Robert Sherrill notes in his book, The Saturday Night Special:
The Gun Control Act of 1968 was passed not to control guns but to control blacks, and inasmuch as a majority of Congress did not want to do the former but were ashamed to show that their goal was the latter,
the result was that they did neither.
Indeed, this law, the first gun-control law passed by Congress in thirty years, was one of the grand jokes of our time.

You should not be in possession of a gun. Obama should send a drone over your trailer park and hunt you down.

Gun Control Was – Historically – About Repressing Blacks
Washington’s Blog
Feb 21, 2013
Preface: I was raised to be against guns. My parents hated guns, and believed that they only lead to crime and accidental shootings.
I was raised in a blue state, and I have long been deeply influenced by leading voices for non-violence, such as Gandhi and King. So – until recently – I was pro gun-control.
As such, I was stunned to learn about the historical background behind gun control campaigns.
The Real History of Gun Control

The key word is "historical" and the subtext is "fear."

• Right-wing was scared. Southerners wanted gun control because they wanted to keep guns out of the hands of black and black slaves. Southerners were afraid that they, as slave owners and vastly outnumbered by blacks, could easily be overwhelmed by an armed black slaved rebellion.

• Right-wing is still scared. Today, we don't have slaves and while the Left-wing fights for gun control, the Right-wing remains frightened of blacks. "Blacks," they argue, "are now armed. We need guns to protect ourselves from them."

Second point. Your reliance on Infowars for news is dumb. It's just another version of Rush Limbaugh. What I wrote previously applies here: Using Infowars to support your conservative position is analogous to a Christian using the bible to support his.

Please join us in the future, but bring your critical thinking skills with you.

It's tautological. Of course a Christian will find exactly what you want and need in the bible. A Christian turning to the bible will find just a series of self-reinforcing statements that cannot be disproved. Thus, the need for critical thinking is eliminated.
