    I Love it When a Liberal Gets a Dose of Reality – Sherri Sheppard To Become Gun Owner 

    Sheri Sheppard from The View has had her aha moment when it comes to guns and providing protection for your family. Her alarm indicated that an intruder was in her home at 1:30 in the morning.  It was then that the family realized that they had nothing in their home to protect themselves.  

     ‘I’m trying to calm Jeffrey down and all I had was this wicker basket, I have nothing, a bat, nothing. We’re going to get a gun.’

     

    Jeffrey is her young son who was rightly frightened by the incident.  It is very scary for an adult, so imagine how much worse it is for a child, who is completely dependant on others to provide protection.  

    Of course her liberal co-hosts tried to talk her out of it.  Whoopi Goldberg went as far as to tell her to buy a bat.  While of course a bat could help you, but first and foremost, if they have a gun it isn’t exactly an effective tool to provide protection.  But the most obvious downfall of a bat is how close you to get to the person in order for it to be used.  Why would you want to get that close to someone who is in your home in the middle of the night? Especially if you have been woken out of a sound sleep.  

    Apparently it took seven minutes for the police to arrive at her home.  Think of what could happen to you in seven minutes in your home with someone with criminal intent on their mind.  That may seem like nothing, but a great deal can happen in that time.  She is lucky that she has the ability to afford an alarm system, otherwise the time for the police to arrive would have been even longer.  

    There is nothing wrong with buying a gun for home protection.  You buy yourself something small, easy to use and you take lessons on how to use it and store it properly.  

    Evil exists in our world.  It is all around us.  We can bury our heads in the sand or we can do what we can to learn how to protect ourselves and our families.  Law abiding citizens have every right to defend themselves in their own home.  You can’t wish away criminals.  

    Welcome to the land of reality, Ms. Sheppard.

      No doubt Sherri realized how important seconds are in a situation like this and the cops WERE only minutes away !

    University Answers To Protecting Yourself against a Gunman 

    These are just great.

    • Wichita State University counsels students in the following manner: “If the person(s) is causing death or serious physical injury to others and you are unable to run or hide you may choose to be compliant, play dead, or fight for your life.”
    • The University of Miami guidelines suggest that when all else fails, students should act “as aggressively as possible” against a shooter. The guidelines, taken from a Department of Homeland Security directive, also recommend “throwing items and improvising weapons,” as well as “yelling.”
    • Otterbein University, in Ohio, tells students to “breathe to manage your fear” and informs them, “You may have to take the offensive if the shooter(s) enter your area. Gather weapons (pens, pencils, books, chairs, etc.) and mentally prepare your attack.
    • West Virginia University advises students that if the situation is dire, they should “act with physical aggression and throw items at the active shooter.” These items could include “student desks, keys, shoes, belts, books, cell phones, iPods, book bags, laptops, pens, pencils, etc.”
    • The University of Colorado at Boulder’s guidelines state, “You and classmates or friends may find yourselves in a situation where the shooter will accost you. If such an event occurs, quickly develop a plan to attack the shooter … Consider a plan to tackle the shooter, take away his weapon, and hold him until police arrive.”

    Seriously, throw a pencil at a gunman?  What exactly is that supposed to accomplish?

    There are no easy answers, but to tell someone that using a pencil against a gunman is one of the stupidest things I have ever heard.

      A couple years ago someone suggested , if you are attacked by someone with a knife, grab the knife blade. The attacker will of course jerk the knife away, thus cutting your hand, but the sight of all that blood will freak the attacker out and he will run away, leaving you otherwise safe and free to seek medical attention.

      Yep, there`s tons of good defensive ideas out there; they just don`t include any of the above !

      Other suggestions not on the list:

      Grab a stapler and use it as an semi-automatic weapon, pinning the shooter to the wall.

      Quickly use scotch tape and copier paper to construct a shield that will make the gunman think it is just a blank wall, then stand behind it.

      Run to your supervisor’s desk and get his half full bottle of vodka and use it as a club to beat the gunman senseless, or if you cannot bring yourself to violence, offer the gunman a drink. Offer another. Soon he will be incapacitated.

      I don’t mean to make light of the tragedy in Connecticut. On the contrary, I am using humor to point out the futility of some of those suggestions.

      There really is no way to be prepared for something like this, save for conceal carry.

      I would like to post a link to a story related to this one. It is about a very, very brave young woman who protected 16 children from that crazy gunman in Connecticut.

      If it comes to fisticuffs, I`m bettin` on “SpoonGuy” !

      My favorite pro-2nd Amendment, pro-Stand Your Ground, pro-Self Defense slogan is, “When seconds count, the cops are only minutes away !”
