The Key to the Uvalde Massacre is: The Critical Importance of One Brave Good Guy with a Gun

“The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles.” ― Jeff Cooper, Art of the Rifle

We have read numerus articles and watched dozens of video interviews about the Uvalde Massacre and we have come to the conclusion that in every case of a mass school shooting it’s critical to stop the bad guy with a gun immediately.

To stop a bad guy with a gun you must have a good guy with a gun who’s willing to go into the breech and use it to save lives.

One of the videos that was of great interest to us was done on CNN with Texas Department of Public Safety Lt. Chris Olivarez.

On CNN’s Situation Room interview Lt. Olivarez clearly states,

In the active shooter situation, you want to stop the killing, you want to preserve life. But also, one thing that, of course, the American people need to understand is that officers are making entry into this building. They do not know where the gunman is. They are hearing gunshots. They are receiving gunshots.

At that point, if they proceeded any further not knowing where the suspect was at, they could have been shot, they could have been killed, and at that point that gunman would have had an opportunity to kill other people inside that school.

This was followed by a tweet that raises a serious issue.

And these tweets:

This single tweet by Alexandra-Ocasio Cortez says it all.

The Bottom Line: Cultural rot has consequences reported:

It’s now clear that crucial minutes ticked by—around an hour—as police stood outside Robb Elementary while the gunman, Salvador Ramos, went on a killing spree inside a fourth-grade classroom. Dozens of Border Patrol agents did respond to support local officers, but it was a four-man team of tactical agents who went in together. And while their actions were undoubtedly heroic, one witness, a 10-year-old boy, has come forward to say the cops inadvertently helped the gunman identify another victim to shoot.

[ … ]

At a press conference Thursday, Victor Escalon, South Texas regional director for the Department of Public Safety, said that after an initial exchange of gunfire with the gunman as he entered the school and traversed the hallways, the initial police officers on the scene retreated and called for backup, including a Border Patrol tactical team. “Approximately an hour later,” Escalon said, Border Patrol agents arrived and killed Ramos. Escalon said there was “a lot of gunfire in the beginning” and that officers were subsequently “kept at bay” by additional shots.

It is past time to stop making public schools gun free zones. This only makes it easier for those like Salvador Ramos to do what he did. But  worse than that it was the inaction of local police that lead inextricably to more children be killed.

As noted,

CBP [U.S. Customs and Border Patrol] responded immediately to the incident with local law enforcement,” Magnus said. “Many of our local CBP personnel live in Uvalde; they call this community home, and they work to protect their families, friends and neighbors every single day. We continue to coordinate closely with our federal, state and local partners in the aftermath of this senseless tragedy.”

Border Patrol agents are undoubtedly part of the fabric of the community in Uvalde, located about 70 miles east of the Del Rio port of entry on the Mexican border.

It is now more and more critical to have public, private and parochial schools defended by trained and armed individuals on campus at all times. Be it teachers, administrators, private security companies, local law enforcement or even parents.

It is clear that the only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is to have a good guy with a gun ever present.

Today, if it wasn’t for the Second Amendment we the people would not be able to defend ourselves, our children, our families and our schools and places of worship from the likes of Salvador Ramos.

America and the world needs more good men with rifles.

Live free and armed or die.
