Washington D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier lords over a city where snotty white liberals have denied the entire population the right to bear arms in any practical sense, in which it is almost impossible to get a concealed carry permit.
Now she’s finally admitting to residents that police won’t be there for them in a terror attack. D.C. residents are on their own, and if you can’t fight, you’re screwed.
Confronted with the rash of school and workplace “soft-target” shooting scenarios that now include possible terrorist acts like those in Paris, police departments are no longer preaching the passive approach of calling 911. Active shooters like the terrorists in Paris call for more active responses, including running away, hiding or actually attacking the attacker, says Washington D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier. Anderson Cooper reports on the new advice departments are giving civilians, and the new ways they are training their officers to respond to these active shooters on the next edition of 60 Minutes on Sunday, Nov. 22 at 7 p.m. ET/PT.
“Your options are run, hide, or fight,” says Lanier. “If you’re in a position to try and take the gunman down, to take the gunman out, it’s the best option for saving lives before police can get there,” she tells Cooper.
In recent years, mentally ill gunmen and now terrorists have killed victims indiscriminately, their aim to kill as many as possible, rather than taking hostages. These events call for more active approaches, she says. “That’s kind of counterintuitive to what cops always tell people, right? We always tell people, ‘Don’t…don’t take action. Call 911. Don’t intervene in the robbery’…we’ve never told people, ‘Take action.’ It’s a different…scenario.”
Wait… Lanier refused to admit that citizens need guns to have a chance of surviving the confrontation she’s encouraging, didn’t she?
She apparently wants you to charge an AK-wielding ISIS member with a stapler, not a Glock.
Folks, you’re adults. You know the laws, and you know the risks.
You can live in D.C. as subjects as the Democrat-dominated city demands, or you can choose to violate their blatantly unconstitutional laws and carry a gun and risk incarceration for acting as if you have right, or you can leave.
They’ve chosen tyranny. Let them live (or try to) with it.
