When the Shooting Starts, Would You Go In?

Armed sheriff´s deputies appeared on the scene of the recent school massacre in Florida while kids were still being murdered inside. But the deputies failed to storm the building to apprehend the killer, to rescue the assaulted, to stop the bleeding and to comfort the dying. They failed to do their jobs. Instead, they cowered behind their patrol cars waiting for, well, apparently waiting for the shooting to stop. Some 150 bullets and 17 lives later, it finally did and the killer walked away. Only then did the deputies enter the building. About that, President Donald Trump characteristically said what he thought. He

Human beings are wired, in times of danger, or stress, with what is known as the "Fight or Flight" response.

Many people have no idea how they would react until confronted which such a scenario.

Speaking from first hand experience if you are a everyday Joe or Jane you get your butt away from the fire. Then you try to make a "what can I do" decision, the answer is.. not a lot. Believe me, it is weeks and even months of questioning yourself. Real life ain´t the movies.

I´ve never been a law enforcement officer, but I was a paramedic for twelve years. I was called in under fire many times. I was shot twice, one was a ´flesh wound´ and one saw me in the hospital for three weeks. I saw firemen go into a burning building, an instinct totally foreign to the human brain. A LEO I knew and really admired was shot seven times when he responded to help us out one day.

Some people can and some people can´t. I pass judgment on neither side.

We make a real mistake believing that all police or military are well trained and brave. Due to social engineering our police and military have become steady paychecks rather than a call to service.

We should pay police triple what they make now but make it a daunting contest to getvto be one. We would be better served with 1/3 the number of police but have them be honest warriors truly out to protect and serve.

"If you run inside to help, the most likely outcome is that you accomplish nothing."

Not if you are a trained professional like the police are supposed to be! You are there to put a stop to a situation. You do it cautiously, and carefully, but you do it! Maybe you take a shot at him and miss, but I guarantee you´ll get his attention and that may be all it takes to save a life or two or more! If you´re there to wait until the shooter runs out of bullets or kids to shoot, you´re not a Policeman. Yer just a janitor!

Having stood guard in a local school, unarmed, in a gun free state while a mad gunman was loose in the neighborhood a few years ago, seething that the local politicians make it so difficult to carry a sidearm (he had already killed two people at the mall and was on the loose nearby) and wishing I had my rifle, or even a bow and arrow, I am 100% certain I would rush in if kids were being killed.

100% certain.

The hypothetical in the article doesn’t fit the situation. Beaton writes about an unarmed person. What would they do.

The Broward County sheriffs who stood around outside (including the one who was the designated school security officer) did nothing. It was their JOB to go in.

Oh, boy,! Would I have gone in? Without a moment´s hesitation. And, yes! I have been tested on that and with real bullets and lots of them. I have friends (now most of them retired) who were police officers. I know as a natural fact not a one of them would have hesitated to go in. Want to see real police in action? Watch the video of the Dallas police getting shot to death by the Black Lives matter radical murderers!

Depends on the situation. Also depends if we are talking an individual response versus the response from a trained police department. The police aren´t going to rush in blindly. That is not how they are trained. What happened in Florida will happen again. Doesn´t matter if you ban guns, put an armed guard in every school, arm the teachers, or lockup every individual that displays anti-social behavior.

Most of the talk about new legislation is just that, talk. Much of it is pandering. Very little will change.

Yes. Trading my older life for one or more innocent young lives would fine with me. Chances of success, unarmed, would likely be remote if you are the only counterattacker. If a few others can be marshaled to rush the shooter simultaneously, preferably from more than one direction, one or more defenders might die, but the shooter will be overwhelmed by the rest.

There are over 1,700,000 concealed weapon permit holders in Florida. Most of them are well above average in shooting ability, and all have been thoroughly vetted and adjudged to be law abiding and sane; however, unless they are, essentially, police, they can´t have weapons in schools. Permit holding teachers, administrators, janitors, and anyone else whose primary work is on that particular school campus ought to be able to carry a weapon if they want to, and have had sufficient training (which should be paid for in the school budget).

No school anywhere should be a posted "gun free zone"; in fact, schools with no security at all should have something like this posted outside: WARNING: Armed security on premises during school hours.

It´s the same principle as people who post security warnings on their windows or on signs on the lawn, even when they have no security at all. How would a common burglar know that? Maybe a common school shooter would be deterred by a false warning of armed security outside a target school.

By the theory given - - that you don´t know until it happens - - we should apply the answer to their future pensions.

Remember, modern cops have bulletproof vests, training and weapons. They are not going to simply barge in and confront a shooter.

"When the building´s on fire with children inside, would you go in?" Ask any fireman. The police and the sheriff´s officers, and their leaders, should hang their heads in shame.

A better question: "If you´re already inside and the shooting starts, and you´re carrying, would you defend yourself and others?" Absolutely, because the fight or flight response is engaged. Happens time and again when ordinary citizens defend themselves and others, but the leftist press prefers to reframe the question to imply that armed citizens are ineffective.

To a earlier post, as far as FD, you go in BECAUSE there may be someone in there. Even a vagrant in a abandoned building. Even our job is becoming pussified because they don’t want guys going inside abandoned building. They’re afraid someone may get hurt and then they would be criticized.

So yes. You go in. No matter what.

but all the training in the world can’t make a man out of a mouse.

I ask myself the question. Would I go in? Definitely if one of my grandchildren were in the building. So why not if it´s someone else´s grandchild? Is their life not as important to them as mine is to me? I hope I would have the courage to do it, even if unarmed.
Off topic, but one of the bravest things I have ever seen was during the takeover of the Breslan school in Russia in 2004. When the terrorists started blowing the school up and children were rushing from the building, the terrorists were shooting at them and police officers and soldiers ran out and threw themselves on top of the children to protect them. I have never forgotten that.

I have never been put into an "under fire" situation but I believe if I were a police office with the training they receive, I would no doubt go in. I only base that on what I know from the farm. I had a guy that wanted to ride my horse one day and he disregarded my instructions and just let the horse take off. As he came around the barn and have no control of the horse, he was headed toward a bunch of kids and I jumped in front of the horse, got control and stopped him. Someone asked how I had the courage to do that? I don´t know, all I knew was the horse had to be stopped before something really bad happened so I just did what I could.

Yes. I lost a much beloved relative in overseas firefight a few years ago. I thought about his sacrifice, and I thought how should I honor him?
I carry a gun every day, have competed for over 30 years with a handgun, and have decided that I would make every effort to stop a violent madman from harming helpless people. I have the skills, I am armed and I think I have the will. Won´t be certain unless it happens. Hope to avoid it, but will not stand by or run away like the Broward Cowards.

Is this part of the psychology behind the average liberals desire that people be unarmed? I do realize that only about a third of them want us disarmed in order to be able to rid themselves of us.
When TSHTF do they fear the coward´s thousand deaths if others, armed, take charge and resolve the problem?
Is this an attempt to avoid feeling ineffectual and weak?

This is a stupid question. Glenn sets up the extreme argument to excuse cowardly and stupid behavior of Broward county law enforcement. That preening punk sheriff should have spent more time training his officers and planning for emergency situations instead of picking out more stars for his fake military uniform.

What was Patterson doing before the shooting started? Wasn´t he on the lookout for a threat inside and outside the school? Cruz was a surprise to him? What a pathetic ´guard.´ He was armed, he was paid to provide security and be a guard. He didn´t do any part of his job. Pension? He ought to be prosecuted for manslaughter.

Every shooter I know would have gone into the building. Maybe they only fire to distract Cruz, maybe they engage and pick him off, maybe they get shot by Cruz or LEOs when the police finally do their job, but for most the issue would be do they remember to count or are they found with an empty pistol.

Has Glenn Beaton ever owned or carried a firearm? Being prepared to correctly engage a target and to have some kind of control over your actions and reflexes is what motivates shooters I know. They want to be safe and effective with their weapon. Yes, life isn´t a movie, but the mindset of a practiced firearms owner isn´t a discussion over coffee either. Deadly force is a serious responsibility. You either accept that or you should not be anywhere near it. Especially if you are being armed and paid to protect children.

There is a difference between a sworn law enforcement officer and just plain Joe from Kokomo. A sworn law enforcement officer has a “duty” to go in, while just plain Joe does not have that duty.

In that respect the people of Broward County, Florida had the right to expect that all the sworn law enforcement officers in their Sheriff’s Department would do their duty even at the risk of their lives.

Most of my long-time favorite L-Dotters have already weighed in (#´s 5, 7, 9, 10, 20, 22 and--of course--13) along with some more recent favorites like #23. I believe all of you.

However, I also understand #´s 1,3, and 4. When I made the decision to arm myself, I took it seriously and trained diligently. After months of practice, I felt competent enough to enter a local competition. During the slow fire exercise, I emptied my pistol in the first 10 seconds and had to stand there like a fool for minutes while the others completed their shots.

I thought I was trained; I thought I was ready. However, the stress of competition was enough to overwhelm all of my practicing. So I honestly don´t know what I would do under actual combat conditions.

I can only hope I would have the courage to kill or die to protect a child.

Tribalism is in our DNA. This innate tendency to adopt the beliefs and customs of the people around us was the glue that held together small bands of nomadic hunters and gatherers. Ancient humans with tribalism in their DNA survived in their tribe and propagated their DNA. Those without it didn´t and didn´t. It´s the natural product of human evolution. Managing ancient humans was not like herding cats. It was more like herding herds. Stray humans didn´t last long on the savanna. Later, tribalism enabled us to coalesce into towns and cities, and to defend our resulting civilizations. Even now, tribalism influences our

So in a classic case of psychosexual compensation, Seattleites did the equivalent of buying the city a Porsche. They built a big thing called the "Space Needle."

And he’s barely doing any “legal work” for Trump, either, they claim. “[Reviews of the records] indicate that Cohen is in fact performing little to no legal work, and that zero ­e-mails were exchanged with President Trump,” according to the brief, filed in

Fired FBI Director James Comey’s new “tell all” book is a dream come true for President Donald Trump’s opponents and a hatchet job on the president. It’s important for every fair-minded person to remember that just because Comey makes a charge, he is not speaking gospel truth – despite his inflated sense of virtue and self-importance. Just about anyone who’s ever been fired fancies “getting even” with the boss. Comey’s new book does that in spades, according to excerpts leaked to the media Thursday. In the process, it lowers the reputation of both the FBI and Comey, undermines the presidency and hurts

White House officials are concerned that the president´s personal attorney, Michael Cohen, had taped recordings that federal investigators may have gotten their hands on during the raid on his hotel and home. Cohen, who served for a decade at the Trump Organization, was known to tape conversations with associates to use as leverage, and even had Trump hear some of his recordings. It was a practice the president was aware of. ´We heard he had some proclivity to make tapes,´ said one Trump adviser to the Washington Post, who spoke about the ongoing investigation. ´Now we are wondering, who did he tape?

The restaurant, on Fulton Street, is the company’s fourth in Manhattan, and it opened last month to the kind of slick, corporate-friendly fanfare that can only greet a new chain. The first hundred customers had participated in a scavenger hunt around the financial district. At an awards ceremony, the management honored them with a year’s supply of free chicken sandwiches and waffle fries. There were no such prizes on offer when I visited, but from the fifth-floor terrace—on the top floor of
