“There is nothing normal about innocent young men and women being gunned down at work,” the President opined at Sunday’s memorial service for the victims of the U.S. Navy Yard spree killing. Hmmm. Seems to me there’s been a number of mass shootings lately. I’m not saying they’re “normal” in the sense that normal people don’t commit mass murder. Well, not normally. But spree killings (with or without guns) are “normal” in the sense that they’re not inconceivable. They happen. On a regular basis. So shouldn’t we accept the possibility and prepare for it? Not by hiring more SWAT teams and creating new laws. By tooling-up as individual citizens. The more often these black swan events occur, the more “normal” concealed or open carry should be. Is that the way it’s going, now that the post-Newtown push for civilian disarmament has run its course (outside of California, Connecticut, Maryland, Massachusetts and New Jersey)? Your thoughts?
