A summery of my take on the Fashion Place Mall shooting incident and what should a trained concealed carrier do if one were near or around where a similar incident.
I prefer to wait 24 to 48 hours before saying anything and making any comments after a larger scale shooting incident. This morning, more information is out, which agrees with my theory based on the initial information I received from one of my local news outlet, KSL LIVE: Continuing coverage on the shooting at Fashion Place Mall in Murray on Sunday afternoon.
KSL news article on the afternoon of the shooting Police hunting for 3 suspects after shooting sparks ‘panic’ at Fashion Place mall in Utah
Sunday around 3:30 pm local time, I was having brunch at a restaurant in South Jordan which is about 15-20 minutes drive from where I was at to the mall. While eating, I saw my local news feeds live stream on FB that a “shooting” at the Fashion Place Mall in Murray. It resulted in two people being injured. Wow it’s a shooting, the media make it look big, like always. Then an hour later, I saw the video along with photos of people being escorted in a line with their hands up (typical escorted evacuate setup we seen in many school and other shootings that occurred indoors) out of the mall. Local LEO and SWAT members were all around with their AR-15 carbines. Local media reported that there were three suspects (shooters?) that fled the area and are at “large.” Continue reading “Fashion Mall Shooting Incident in Murray, UT” »
FBI numbers don’t lie. Nation wide report shows that law breakers using rifles to commit crime is significant less than knives or hands and fists.
When a man wants to kill, he will do whatever it takes. If there were laws that prevents a people from committing murder, we would have heard about it by now. This goes back to Cain and Able.
According to the FBI, the number of people killed with rifles and shotguns in 2016 totals approximately 636. Over 4 times that many, approximately 2732, were stabbed or hacked to death.
If these anti Second Amendment freedom hating Democrats were all about saving lives and trying to reduce crime, they wouldn’t push for “assault rifles” or the correct term, semi auto rifles ban.
They never talked about how many lives are saved by the hands of private citizens with guns each year.

You read it right again. According to a more recent study by Harvard Journal of Law and Public Policy, which cites the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the U.S National Academy of Sciences and the United Nations International Study on Firearms Regulation, the more guns a nation has, the less criminal activity.
The study came from the Harvard Journal of Law, that bastion of extreme, Ivy League liberalism. Titled Would Banning Firearms Reduce Murder and Suicide?, the report “found some surprising things.”
It concludes the virtually unpublicized research report by attorney Don B. Kates and Dr. Gary Mauser. But the key is firearms in the hands of private citizens. Continue reading “Harvard University Study Reveals More Guns Equates to Less Crime” »

Here are the factual data from the CDC there were 7 firearm-related homicides for every 100,000 Americans in 1993 (see light blue line in chart). By 2013 (most recent year available), the gun homicide rate had fallen by nearly 50% to only 3.6 homicides per 100,000 population.
Contrary to what the left wing mainstream media and gun-control advocates say.
Most people who make such claim that the US gun violence and death surpass countries such as, the UK, Norway or Australia. They all failed to realize that they are comparing over 300 million people vs 25 million. You have to compare per capita. Compare the continental US vs the whole Europe now go figure…

More lives will be lost, and more mass shooting will be a common occurrence because Obama, Hilary and the rest of the democrats live in a fantasy world. They can’t see how their gun control laws that they keep insist on pushing failed miserably. Tomorrow’s address to the nation will show how out of touch he is with today’s current events and society.
Know your history: Back in the 60’s, 70’s and even the 80’s school shootings and other mass shootings were unheard of. Why? Is not because we had less guns and more gun control. In the 50’s, 60’s, teens used to bring their hunting rifles to school and store it in the locker till after school. But thanks to Bill Clinton who started making schools and military bases in the 90’s a gun free zone, our county has seen a surge in gun violence.
