So much for "gun-free zones." Monterey Park shooting reiterates the obvious: guns are the best answer to guns if you can't avoid the scene entirely

Best answer is to avoid allegedly "gun-free" zones or cities because that is where gun-toting thugs will surely strike. Even the craziest of crazies prefers an easy path to "glory" rather than a quick wounding or death before maximizing the number of uncontested kills.

    Something about bringing a knife to a gun fight comes to mind. Amazing how the bad guys get dispatched pretty quickly when a CCP person is nearby. Something about don't leave home without it comes to mind.

      I found something relevant from YahooNews. Apparently Tran (the perp) was going to shoot up another dancehall in the general vicinity when Tsai, one of the proprietors, took him on and, according to the story, disarmed the perp after a physical confrontation in which Tsai was badly bruised but after which Tran hightailed it back to his van and took off. Later after cops tracked Tran down, Tran committed suicide (with a different weapon?).

      The question arises, why risk physical harm when a carefully placed bullet will have the same effect? I'm all for Constitutional Carry and proud that I live in a state that preserves and protects that right.

    The best way to stop a a shooter from shooting you and loved ones is to be be able to shoot back.
    Only then will you have time to call 911 and wait for the police to arrive.
    Be sure to put your weapon away before they show up.
    Me dino be recalling a 20-year-old local story of a robbed bank manager who surprised cops by hopping out from a door with a shotgun in his hands.
    The cops blew him away. Why am I thinking of a "Death By Darwin?"

    Avoidance is the key operative point here. Being a Good Guy with a gun in almost any circumstance will likely cost you dearly no matter if you are right or wrong. Seems to me that being in an I HOP, McDonalds or Walmart is just as dangerous as going to a big gathering.

      I would love to make a Joke about why I choose Dennys! LOL... But it's just too easy and wrong!

      I still suggest an IHOP is safer than a Waffle House... Having been to many of both... I always carry in a Waffle House, and choose a corner seat with my back to the wall... Sad but true.

    I read something really strange about these two shootings. Both were retired Asian men. The article (which I can't remember where I read it) said something to the effect that there is always a spat of violence among some Asians right after the Chinese New Year (this past Sunday). They went on further to say it was being categorized as a racial hate crime. One shot up a bunch migrant workers at a produce farm. The other went to a dance club where he frequented. It was not a random event but he targeted certain people who (must have) slighted him in some way. This second man, made the weapons and ammo that he used. In the end, neither were random events. No new laws are going to stop someone bent on killing.
    The worst mass killing in US history was in Bath Township, Michigan, May 18th 1927. He used dynamite. https://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/wor...

    It occurred to me when I heard of this that these folks were celebrating the Chinese New Year and with all the COVID crap this person might have built up a head full of hate for Chinese people and that is why he went bezerk!

      Trouble is with a name like "Tran" the guy is more than likely a Vietnamese Chinese (AKA "Hoa," short for 華橋). Clay and Buck (who took over for Limbaugh) got into this in their early morning AM radio show today, mentioning how the leftist media was immediate in their rush to add this incident to their "evidence" file for the narrative that right-wing extremists or Trump supporters had to be the perp(s) fulfilling insidious racist hatreds.

      No such luck. Turns out the guy is Asian or Asian-American--so "no there there." He was probably just pissed because his wife was stepping out on him, or because he imagined the dancehall owners looked down on him for some reason. A CC bullet could have put his jealousies/hatreds to rest before he turned them into reality--or at least before the count got up to 10 killed, more injured..

    A well-armed society is a polite society. The apparent lack of of politeness has a remedy -- essentially, a show of force and unwillingness to tolerate a lack of politeness... Open carry. On edit... mixed Open and concealed ... as long as it's made clear that bad behavior will not be tolerated.

      And then we need a couple of "Example" shootings that make the news... And the judge saying...

      "So, you told these young men there was no smoking on the train, and they attacked you, so you pulled out a gun, and killed 4 of them, and held the other 3 until the police arrived. You good man! We will charge these other 3 with attempted assault and being STUPID in a group setting! You are found not guilty on all counts!"

    The leftist press is crying about 25 dead in the entire state of California. That’s a “good” weekend in Lori Lightfoot’s Chicago.
    I’m sorry to sound callous but I’m sick of the propaganda that’s aimed at disarming me so THE NEXT TIME they can stick whatever experimental poison they want into me. Vis a vis Australia.
    The 2nd amendment is what it is. To blatantly violate it is to call into question the entire document that gives the federal government the authority to even exist.
    Go ahead Feds.....let’s see what happens.
