A Fearless Prediction

It turns out that a Marine and a sailor at the Chattanooga navy reserve office during the spree killing last week committed a bit of a naughty, and apparently fired personal sidearms at Mohammed Abdulazeez.

A report distributed among senior Navy leaders during the shooting’s aftermath said Lt. Cmdr. Timothy White, the support center’s commanding officer, used his personal firearm to engage Abdulazeez, Navy Times confirmed with four separate sources. A Navy official also confirmed a Washington Post report indicating one of the slain Marines may have been carrying a 9mm Glock and possibly returned fire on the gunman.

Federal law, of course, protects spree killers against danger from anyone but law enforcement and military police on federal property.

My fearless prediction: once the politically-correct military leadership and the Obama Administration’s stonewalling falls away, it will be found that the return fire was what caused Abdulazeez to break off his attack.  Law enforcement now accepts as fact that getting shots off at a spree killer as soon as possible is the best tactic; it breaks the killer out of his psychotic reverie, and disrupts their lavishly-orchestrated plan.  They usually kill themselves, give up, or – as I strongly suspect will be discovered in Chattanooga, commit “martyrdom by cop”.

What the law enforcement establishment doesn

I never gamble money.  But I’ll stake bragging rights on this one.

    Silly question. Were the two members gun permit holders and had the guns in their cars and had gotten the guns from their cars. Thus they could argue they weren’t breaking federal law if they weren’t on the base and they were using the gun for self defense.

  2. Or these 2 scenerios. A white racist goes into a church, a gun-free zone, and murders 9 worshippers. There is one photo out there of him posing with a Confederate flag. Therefore we have to ban the Confederate flag.

    An anti-Christian bigot goes into the offices of a religious group in DC. He is armed and plans on killing 9 or so people. They have an armed guard there who stops it. In the gunman’s pocket is a hit list, courtesy of the SLPC. How come we aren’t banning those wack knobs?

  3. The propagandists at NPR were pushing the “suicide by cop” idea for Abdulazeez last week. It’s absurd, but of course the “journalists” did not ask hard questions. Or easy questions.
    If you want to commit suicide by cop you don’t have to kill anyone. All you have to do is get 3 or 4 cops to believe you are armed and point a gun at them. You will go down in a hail of bullets, the only person killed will be you. You don’t even have to have loaded gun.
    You don’t do “suicide by cop” by shooting people at multiple locations. No need, bra. Why you want to kill someone else?
    If I had my way, they would fire every journalist, editor, and producer at NPR. Send them off to work at community shopper rags and open access cable. You couldn’t do worse if you grabbed the first hundred people you found shopping at Walmart and gave them jobs doing the news at NPR.

  4. 9/11: terrorist attack on America, or group suicide by 19 depressed individuals with nothing in common other than depression? We may never know!

  5. The cynic in me–and the one who’s been watching Dear Leader for a while–expects the CO to be fired and the deceased to be deprived of death benefits because they were illegally armed on government property. At least until the outcry gets too loud.

    I also fully expect the DOD to stonewall effective improvements in security at least long enough for one more atrocity to happen over the next two years.

    You forgot the part where Obama swears that he had nothing to do with it, it’s all just SOP and he hates to interfere with the military, and also he didn’t hear anything about it until he read about it in the newspaper.

  7. Speaking of a ‘Good Guy’ with a gun stopping crime – here’s a ‘Good Gal’…, well, ‘Good’ may be relative here, with a gun who got one of Dog Gone’s people…
    “He showed up with … a Subaru full of weapons …”
    Now, there was no mention of Alpaca sweaters or a Coexist bumper sticker or Keri Millers voice in the background as he lay in a pool of his own blood in the article. I suppose they weren’t listed in an editing decision for space consideration.

  8. I’m guessing BB won’t be getting any naysayers on his prediction. Sure they will try to keep the discipline on the QT but I’m pretty sure it’s coming. Hero be damned – rules are rules…
