So a 22 year old man dressed as a woman was armed with a Kel-Tec Sub 2000 (9mm caliber carbine) Glock 43X, (9mm caliber) a Remington 700 (bolt-action rifle) and a Shotgun.
No caliber mentioned for the Remington Bolt Action rifle, but as for the Shotgun I am gonna guess a 12 Gauge Pump of some flavor.
No AR-15’s, No AK-47’s, No Military Assault Rifles, No “Machine Guns” (give me a break!)
But still you got 7 people dead and over 47 injured.
Despite what the MSM is trying to imply, a person with ill intent does not need a lot of firepower to inflict SERIOUS damage on a CROWD of distracted people.
History bears this out in graphic detail.
Remember the Virginia Tech Massacre in 2007?
One man armed with a Glock 19 9mm Handgun with 15 round magazines and a Walther .22 Caliber Pistol with 10 round magazines killed 32 People and wounded over a dozen.
Remember the Waukesha Christmas Parade Attack in 2021?
6 people were killed and 62 injured when a black extremist militant drove a SUV through a crowd of people.
A Vehicle, not Firearms did all that damage!
How about the Sagamihara Stabbings in 2016 where a man armed with a bag of knives murdered 19 people and injured 26?
KNIVES not Firearms did that!
Bottom Line folks MASS/ACTIVE SHOOTER EVENTS are not so much about the WEAPONS used, it’s more about the TACTICS.
They Look for SOFT Targets. People that are unprepared and unarmed. Cities with strict Gun Laws or Locations where Citizens are unlikely to be Armed such as Schools, Municipal Buildings, etc.
They Look for CROWDS of People that are DISTRACTED. Big public venues such as Parades and Concerts seem to be their favorite target.
They look for CROWDS OF PEOPLE IN CONFINED AREAS. Very often the security for these large venues are very strict, only allowing for one way in and out. This works well for monitoring and control but not so good for EXIT, especially in a mass panic stampede.
Stay Alert and Aware
Drill and Practice Regularly with your Firearm
