They Shoot Christians, Don’t They?

Written by Gary North on October 3, 2015

The NBC News version of the story of the Oregon massacres said this:

High school student Autumn Vicari told NBC News her 19-year-old brother J.J. was in a room filled with students at the college when the gunman entered.

According to her brother’s account, Vicari said at one point the shooter told people to stand up before asking whether they were Christian or not.

Vicari’s brother told her that anyone who responded “yes” was shot in the head. If they said “other” or didn’t answer, they were shot elsewhere in the body, usually the leg. Vicari said her brother managed to escape but watched as three people were later killed in another room. He believes the gunman didn’t spot him, Vicari said — adding that J.J. was struggling to deal with what he witnessed.

If you love Jesus, what would be your attitude after the first Christian was shot?

I know what mine would be. “Let’s get this bastard now, or we’re all dead.”

That would also be my reaction if he targeted Muslims.

Once the first victim is gunned down, someone had better call all the rest to action, and then rush him. This person is going to get shot. He is going to get shot anyway.

This suicide mission requires a call to action. Otherwise, people will remain inert, hoping for the best.

The best strategy in an unarmed society is for everyone to rush the shooter and subdue him.

This is not what we are taught in our feminized culture. We are taught by little old women of both sexes. I was taught by Col. Jeff Cooper at Gunsite. “A man has a moral responsibility to subdue such an assailant.” He taught me in 1980.

The little old woman who occupies the White House immediately sent out this press release.

Earlier this year, I answered a question in an interview by saying, “The United States of America is the one advanced nation on Earth in which we do not have sufficient common-sense gun-safety laws — even in the face of repeated mass killings.” And later that day, there was a mass shooting at a movie theater in Lafayette, Louisiana. That day! Somehow this has become routine. The reporting is routine. My response here at this podium ends up being routine. The conversation in the aftermath of it. We’ve become numb to this.

We talked about this after Columbine and Blacksburg, after Tucson, after Newtown, after Aurora, after Charleston. It cannot be this easy for somebody who wants to inflict harm on other people to get his or her hands on a gun.

And what’s become routine, of course, is the response of those who oppose any kind of common-sense gun legislation. Right now, I can imagine the press releases being cranked out: We need more guns, they’ll argue. Fewer gun safety laws.

As his former chief of staff might put it, “Never let an anti-Christian massacre go to waste.”
