Active Shooter Response: A Different Look at Run, Hide, Fight

Read this:


Ohio State University Police Officer Alan Horujko, 28, was praised by authorities for his quick actions after he fatally shot a Somali Muslim terrorist OSU student with legal resident status who drove a car into a group of pedestrians before getting out and cutting multiple victims with a butcher knife on campus this week. Authorities said that Horujko, who just happened to be in the area investigating a reported gas leak, shot and killed the attacker less than one minute after the attack began. So…. guns are good, according to OSU authorities, who prohibit guns on campus.

Officials have stated that the attack was clearly deliberate and may have been planned in advance. Witness reports indicate that a group of students had assembled outside an Ohio State building in response to a fire alarm, which I presume the attacker probably triggered. The Islamic State claimed responsibility a day after the attack, calling the perpetrator a “soldier” of the terrorist group, and the FBI agrees that the perp may have been following ISIL’s instructions.

A few notes:

  1. As nearly always happens, the attack was stopped by a good guy with a gun.
  2. The school apparently sent out a text warning stating “Active Shooter on campus. Run Hide Fight,” but there was no shooter. Minutes after news broke that there was an “active shooter,” TWITters, including demanding mommy Shannon Watts and liberal VP nominee Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA), called for stronger gun control and blamed the attack on weak gun control laws.
  3. The campus is apparently a gun free zone, so no victims had the chance to shoot the attacker.
  4. A one-minute response time is outstanding, but cannot be expected or depended on.
  5. Reports indicated that approximately 11 people were injured and 9 victims were hospitalized. 1 minute. 9 victims.

First Aid

We have a report of a new federal initiative to train staff at schools and other public places how to treat gunshots, lacerations and other injuries until EMTs can get to the scene. A program offered by Stony Brook University Hospital’s trauma center is looking to expand as part of a federal Department of Homeland Security initiative to other schools, colleges and police departments across the country.

Note that the better gun schools already offer trauma medicine courses.


Elect Trump; end federal gun-free zones. Even before he takes office.

Missouri’s Governor Elect Eric Greitens is a former Navy Seal. Cool.

Obama won - rioting?

More criminals granted clemency

President Obama announced he would free 79 more drug offenders from federal prison last week, making the total number of commutations granted under his tenure over 1,000. Mr. Obama has now granted more commutations than the past 11 presidents combined.

Deputy US Attorney General Sally Yates said that her office is committed to processing another 6,300 drug sentence commutation petitions and getting them to the president’s desk before he leaves office Jan. 20.

“He leaves office.” I love saying that.


At 16, a boy, not an adult, was committed to a mental facility because he was thought to be suicidal. At the age of 21, he went to buy a gun. He was denied and charged with lying on the form to purchase. He wants his gun rights restored and is suing the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in federal court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, on grounds that the state’s Firearms Disqualification Statute is unconstitutional.

There is no question that the National Firearms Act is unconstitutional. And there is little question that the federal government doesn’t see it that way. Whether one agrees or disagrees with the content of the law, the fact remains that there is no constitutional authority for it.

The Only Ones

The Secret Service has secret guns. So secret even they can’t find them.

Sgt. Alvin Adams of the Wood County, Ohio Sheriff’s Office died Saturday morning after his apparent negligent discharge of a personal weapon at home.

Aliquippa, PA, police officer Joshua Thomas Gonzalez, 24, has been charged with aggravated assault after he shot an unidentified 29-year-old Allegheny County jail guard allegedly in self-defense after a bar fight.

Raleigh, NC Police Officer C.N. Chandler was hit by friendly fire when he, Officer R.D. VanHouten and Officer T.A. Dunford encountered a suspect armed with a knife. We don’t yet know which of the officers shot Chandler.


Connecticut Episcopalians from parishes around the state met last month in Hartford for their 233rd annual convention, where they considered a resolution that would ask all parishes in the state to declare themselves as gun-free zones.

Also last month was the Faith and Guns Forum in Washington, D.C., organized by the United Methodist Board of Church and Society, which is one of the originators of the American gun control movement. The forum was a political gun control seminar for church leaders, and was followed by their lobbying of US Senators and Representatives in Washington.

No word on whether any of these people consulted the Bible to guide them, and if so, what passages support gun control laws.

Levi Strauss & Co. CEO Chip Bergh has posted an open letter to customers, asking them to refrain from legally bringing their concealed carry firearms into Levi Strauss stores, because, he says, it’s safer, and that “You don’t need a gun to try on a pair of jeans.” He allows an exception for law enforcement.

He’s lying. First, it’s not safer, second, you DO need a gun to try on jeans if you normally carry a gun in your jeans, and third, law enforcement aren’t some special class of citizens. The Second Amendment applies to the people, not to government agents.

But I will honor his request and not enter any Levi stores or purchase them anywhere else.

Legendary songwriter Ed Bruce long ago took the reference to “old faded Levis” out of his song, “Mamas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys,” and replaced it with “Wranglers” due to Levi’s left-leaning politics, with which Bruce disagrees.

Harvard’s liberal gun-ban contingent says that Americans who own between 8 and 140 guns each are “gun super-owners,” and that this 3% of Americans own 50% of the guns. But consider the source. Most everyone I know falls in that range.

Gun Nuts

The PETA bunch has another moronic ad campaign featuring naked “celebrities” who are now protesting…. wool. That’s right. Apparently giving a sheep a harmless haircut is mean or something. They say they’d rather be naked than wear sheep wool.

Fine with me.

Some Ole Miss students want the university (but not themselves at home, apparently) to harbor fugitives.


The Second Amendment Foundation wants President-elect Donald Trump to “make the Second Amendment great again” by appointing a special Department of Justice prosecutor to go after cities and states that violate gun owners’ rights.

Long overdue….

Bedwetter alert

Student government leaders at Loyola University Maryland came under pressure from the university administration to change the theme of a senior class party held Nov. 18 because, the administrators said, it was “very alienating, divisive and harmful” and against the university’s “core values.” The theme, “America,” was based upon a survey of Loyola seniors taken last summer.

Guilty administrators include the university’s Executive Vice President Susan Donovan, and Dean of Students Sheilah Horton.

Quiet Riot reports that units from 2nd Marine Division will be silencing every element of an infantry battalion — M4 carbines to 50 caliber machine guns — in a series of experiments. The cost is expected to be $700,000 for a ~1,000-man infantry battalion.

An entire suppressed unit also sounds like pretty effective psyops to me.

Hiding guns

Military ammo

The Fiscal 2017 National Defense Appropriations Act includes a provision requiring the secretary of defense to submit a report to the House and Senate Armed Services Committees explaining why the Army and Marine Corps are using different types of 5.56 mm ammunition for their M16A4 and M4 rifles. The bill also says that if the SecDef does not determine that an “emergency” requires the Army and Marine Corps to use the two different types of rifle ammo, they must begin using one standard kind within a year after the bill is passed.

The Marine Corps uses the M855 5.56 mm round, while the Army uses the M855A1. The Army determined that the M855A1 steel-and-copper round performed better, while the Marine Corps stayed with the M855 for the time being because it has a different trajectory.

But the real reason for the difference is that the two services each choose their own ammo. The SecDef apparently has not so far dictated ammo choices across the board.

If you were gonna buy a gun before Hillary took office and took them away, go on and do it anyway.

This year’s Black Friday set a single-day record for the (unadjusted) number of FBI firearms background checks. The NICS processed 185,713 transactions, surpassing the previous single-day record of 185,345 checks set on Black Friday 2015. That’s enough to arm the US Marine Corps. Apparently the sales surge was due to purchases by previously unarmed liberal minorities and sexual deviants, apparently somehow thinking they were more at risk after gun-banner Hillary Clinton was defeated in the election. So after voting for Clinton they went out and bought the guns Clinton was trying to ban.
