    Simply put, I perceive THAT as being OUR best ticket for survival, not me going Rambo trying to kill the guy shooting, in a room in which I can barely see my hand in front of my face. This kid was spraying bullets, buddy. Best way to avoid getting hit by one is to go where he is least likely to be spraying, which is DOWN.
    You're right. That is the best way to keep from getting hit. Would it be the best way to help? Eh...not so much.

    Now, if my ENTIRE family were there, for some strange reason, then yeah, who the hell knows what I would do. All bets are off, at that point. Put a gun in my hand, and I likely WOULD shoot back, which, to be honest, likely WOULD result in more people beyond the aggressor getting killed. Again, dark room, staring at a giant bright screen, and smoke. It'd take my eyes 1 minute just to be able to see more than a foot in front of me, let alone enough to deal with smoke, panicked people, etc.


    You could have had James Bond, John Rambo, Jason Bourn, AND Batman in that room, and the tragedy would have unfolded in the same way.

    Simply put, it was well planned. It was a perfect awful nightmare scenario.

    no more.

    same with my wife who just became a certified SW armorer yesterday.
    Congrats to your wife. Cool!

There are so many logistical problems that survival is already iffy.
    They should retrofit theaters/malls/schools etc. with safe positions for people to take cover during incidents like this.

    My obligation as a parent is not to anyone else. Only my children.

    Me getting killed, even if it saves 50 other people, does not give my daughter the best father she deserves, does it? When you think about it THAT way, those other people? Their lives are cheap, sorry to say.

    yeah I was offered the slot at the range where we shoot-it was mainly for employees but I help a lot around there but I had to attend our office yearly "law camp" and to meet my Ohio Bar CLE requirements so the wife went and got a 100 percent on the test. When she gets her credentials she gets to buy a SW MP Pro for cost which is about 200 bucks. we have a bunch of those SW M&P autos and its my primary "Car gun" and I often carry the compact version so her knowing how to fix one is a good skill. She now wants to become a Glock armorer and an AR 15 armorer. I am one for 1911's-we had to build one from scratch and get it to shoot 10 magazines without a jam many years ago. The one I built I sold to a guy for what the parts cost plus some and I saw him about 6 months ago and he said its still running really well (Caspian Kit)

    Call it what you want. Next time someone shoots up the theater you're at, be sure to jump in the line of fire to save some lives. Keep an image of your child in you mind as you die.

    But, I think that way...some folks just want to do nothing and hope they're not the one that gets hurt.
    I'm sure the theater seats, being so spacious and easy to navigate on a slope, in addition to dozens of screaming and bloody people around you would have been no contest for your butter sweet swarzenegger skills.

    Aren't you the one who said something about thanking Islam?
