    that tells our youth/adults to submit to the threat of gunmen?

    Not pointing fingers, not condemning, not judging, just wonder if we need some additional training in our schools - or maybe they are teaching passive behavior.

    I've noticed in many of the mass shootings - it SEEMS that there is no opposition to shooters. At least I hear of none most of the time.

    Is this a taught conditioning, is it just the way people react? Yes, it is easy to say I would jump to stop someone. It just seems normal if you think you are about to die that you would try to stop that from happening.

    The people on the 9/11 plane took action - why don't more people take action.

    Some do and die, like Sandy Hook but others do not.

    We had a shooting in a Portland mall a few years ago. A concealed carry man drew his gun, aimed, found he did not have a safe clear shot, with-drew, the shooter found a corner and killed himself.

    Yeah, you would think someone would have thrown a bottle or two or a chair at the murderer.

    Three hundred drunks at 2:00 a.m. Sunday morning at close quarters are probably all in pandemonium.

    We ain't seen nothing yet. Remember Lot's wife.

    Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
