Killing and terrorizing innocent people appears to be the new fad of the mentally disturbed America. So we tune in once again but continue to do relatively nothing to protect ourselves and children from these crazed maniacs. We do more to prevent weapons and bombs on planes then we do on school campuses.
And so another mentally ill man walked into a school and murdered 26 innocent people, worst of all most of them were children under the age of ten. How can we prevent this from happening in the future? What technologies are there that can help? How can we educate ourselves on prevention? Why are we not putting political pressure on our elected officials to provide meaningful solutions rather than sympathetic media sound bytes and pounding the anti-gun war drums? All good questions to ask.
There’s so many lessons learned in the Special Operations community that can be applied to everyday life. After the Aurora shooting I was inspired to write a short e-book with tips on how to survive an active shooter.
Recently I learned about the Newton tragedy while on vacation in Africa, and as a father myself (with kids in elementary school) I wanted to write something that would provide solutions. I decided to take a quick survey of former SEAL teammates, many of them now work in tier one corporate security, I asked them what their thoughts were.

From Ranger Up, William Tango Foxtrot, I say again...http://news.sky.com/story/1042783/murder-confession-teen-copies-horror-film Read this-funny the media isn't all over this, oh wait, hollywierds habit of weaning kids on ultra violence while misdirecting blame and doing what they do best-FAKE IT- shirking accountability all together. This is posted in another thread, as well, because I couldn't find this one...but this something that needs to be read by all.
Terrorism is a deadly virus that has the most sensitivity to the place in our society, to our children ...
As a teacher of 25 years I can tell you no one has ever approached me on this topic, present company included. We're on our own.
@dunrossinsf So if you're dad's a shithead you can't own a firearm? Or I misread what you posted. Explain please.
One of the most useful proposals I've heard is to extend background checks to anyone lving in the same household as a gun buyer. Would help keep weapons out of the hands of the mentally ill.
