Top 3 Lessons from the Virginia Reporter Shootings
We can learn from every tragedy… here’s what I’ve learned from this horrible crime!
Lessons can be learned from every single tragedy. Although these situations bring pain, fear, and anger into our lives, we can always adapt to make sure we do what it takes to make our world a better and safer place to live.
Here are some lessons to be learned from this crime.
Lesson #1: Situational awareness is key to safety.
There’s no doubt in my mind that Alison Parker could see Vester Lee Flanagan out of her peripheral vision. Although I don’t think it would have made a difference in the outcome, a glance at Vester’s direction could have identified a threat and given her a few more seconds to react.
In the crazy world we live in, it’s absolutely ESSENTIAL to always be aware of our surroundings. You should know who is around you at all times, and always look at people’s hands before you look at their face. Their face can’t hurt you, and they can’t hurt you without their hands.
Lesson #2: Get armed. Get trained. Carry daily. We don’t know when tragedy will strike next.
I don’t think Alison Parker or Adam Ward stood a chance.
Even if Alison (or her videographer) had been carrying, I don’t think this particular situation would have ended differently. There’s a chance, however, that if Alison or Adam had been trained in situational awareness and had firearms on them, the situation may have ended in their favor.
However, the important takeaway here is that you and I can take steps NOW to protect ourselves, our families, and our communities. By getting armed and trained NOW, and carrying daily, we can be as prepared as possible for any situation.
You may not think that carrying daily is necessary: but if 50% of all people in the community would carry daily every time they left their homes, the bad guys would barely be able to get a shot off before a member of our community is able to restore order.
Get armed. Get trained. Carry daily.
Lesson #3: The media & the liberals will always blame the gun to advance their gun control agenda.
Well, ALMOST always.
After Dylan Roof mass murdered a black church in Charleston, SC, the media had a more important blame game to play: racism. I personally don’t believe it’s racism that lead Dylan Roof to kill 9 people in that church. I believe it was his mental illness that lead to his actions: and that race was just the scapegoat for his insanity.
However, anytime a gun is used in a crime, the leftists in this country are quick to advance their dangerous gun control agenda. Have a look below to see the White House’s response to shooting.
