Minimize the collateral damage…….
It is a clear reality that “domestic and international terrorism” is here to stay. For this country the second amendment must remain intact to curb the “surprise factor” used by these terrorist. Consequently, the advantage that these terrorist bank on with their “surprise factor” is the probability of killing as many individuals as possible. In essence, apparently and or currently there isn’t a fail safe way to stop the “surprise attack.” With expediency our local, state and federal law agencies have been pursing ways to minimize the “surprise factor.” Yet, if you have listened closely to those agencies who have either implicitly or explicitly conveyed a single underlying message. “We have no way to, with a 100% certainty stop these suicidal attacks.” How can this country minimize the probability of the “killing factor” during the initial moments of those “surprise attacks?” USAirwaves proposes the “deputization” of the concealed weapons holder. These individuals have already been cleared by the above agencies, and with some additional training, those individuals will become what is defined as the “point factor.” The point factor is the presence of these CWH at the moment in time, and place of the initial surprise attack. Hence, the concealed weapons holder will be our initial frontline defense as an attack occurs. Hence, the action taken by the CWH is to minimize and or repel the “collateral damage” during the initial attack by suppressing the assailant ‘s movement by the “authorized use of a lethal weapon.”
In John F. Kennedy’s inaugural speech,
“The world is very different now. For man holds in his mortal hands the power to abolish all forms of human poverty and all forms of human life. And yet the same revolutionary beliefs for which our forebears fought are still at issue around the globe–the belief that the rights of man come not from the generosity of the state but from the hand of God.”
“We dare not forget today that we are the heirs of that first revolution. Let the word go forth from this time and place, to friend and foe alike, that the torch has been passed to a new generation of Americans–born in this century, tempered by war, disciplined by a hard and bitter peace, proud of our ancient heritage–and unwilling to witness or permit the slow undoing of those human rights to which this nation has always been committed, and to which we are committed today at home and around the world.”
“Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty.”
“This much we pledge–and more.”
