Who Is Responsible For Your Own Safety, You, But So Are Local, Sate And Federal "officials"?

Attend all of the weapon safety training that you can. Training helps you identify hazards and take the appropriate precautions to protect yourself and others.

Never operate a weapon unless you have been properly trained.

Read and understand the weapon manual and know the hazards and safe work practices for all of the weapons that you work with.

If you have a question about your weapon or a process, ask your weapons trainer – taking a chance at can mean taking a chance with your life.

You are responsible for the safety of your own actions while on the job. In this case job means when you are off work and still doing things.

Talk with your weapons instructor about safety. If you have a suggestion to make a process or equipment safer, speak up!

No one should know your job and tools better than you.

Clear thinking and immediate action in an emergency can save lives.


(I took the following information from Employee Safety Responsibilities and modified them a little. As you can see your safety depends on you on and off the job. More so off the job.) Story Reports


When Lanza arrived at the school, he forcibly entered, according to Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy.

"What we know is he shot his way into the building. He was not buzzed in," Malloy told ABC's "This Week" on Sunday. "He penetrated the building by literally shooting an entrance into the building."

A custodian ran through the halls, warning of a gunman on the loose, and someone switched on the intercom, alerting people in the building to the attack -- and perhaps saving many lives -- by letting them hear the hysteria going on in the school office, a teacher said. Teachers locked their doors and ordered children to huddle in a corner or hide in closets as shots echoed through the building.

Malloy said Lanza committed suicide when he heard first responders coming. A Connecticut official said Lanza killed himself with a single bullet to the head from the10 mm gun, and the bullet was recovered in a classroom wall.

"We surmise that it was during the second classroom episode that he heard responders coming and apparently at that, decided to take his own life," Malloy said.


Did Fear of being committed made Lanza snap?

(FOXNEWS) — The gunman who slaughtered 20 children and six adults at a Connecticut elementary school may have snapped because his mother was planning to commit him to a psychiatric facility, according to a lifelong resident of the area who was familiar with the killer’s family and several of the victims’ families.

Adam Lanza, 20, targeted Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown after killing his mother early Friday because he believed she loved the school “more than she loved him,” said Joshua Flashman, 25, who grew up not far from where the shooting took place. Flashman, a U.S. Marine, is the son of a pastor at an area church where many of the victims’ families worship.

“From what I’ve been told, Adam was aware of her petitioning the court for conservatorship and (her) plans to have him committed,” Flashman told “Adam was apparently very upset about this. He thought she just wanted to send him away. From what I understand, he was really, really angry. I think this could have been it, what set him off.”


(Guns ammo, crazies, alcohol, drugs etc don't mix. I think his mother should have locked her weapons up where here mentally ill son could have not used them to murder. Because she didn't and her son knew he was going to the funny farm she opened the door to her son. It was reported her son tried to purchase a weapon but would not go through the background check.

Concealed weapons do protect against people like the 20 year old nut who went crazy.

When concealed weapons permits are not allowed by the authorities this leaves people less able to defend themselves.

I say the answer is to make concealed weapons permits allowed nationwide after background checks and training.) Story Reports


(The key fact here is that the shooting stopped when lanza killed himself. Lanza killed himself just before he knew he would be killed.

Stop and think about that for a moment.

The shooting finally stopped AFTER 15 MINUTES. Lanza had 15 minutes to kill at will.

30 MINUTES LATER the swat team entered the building.

Do you get the picture?

When individuals are disarmed they are at the immediate mercy of criminals.

Connecticut allows concealed or open weapons carry!

Places off-limits when carrying in Connecticut:

It is unlawful to possess a firearm on public or private elementary or secondary school property. This prohibition shall not apply to a person with a firearm carrying permit, with permission from school officials, or while traversing school property with an unloaded firearm for the purpose of gaining access to lands open to hunting or for other lawful purposes, provided entry is not prohibited by school officials.

Did no one in the school in connecticut have permission from school officials to possess a firearm at school?

It would have made perfect sense for the principal, teachers and other office workers to have been allowed to possess a firearem for their protection and the protection of the children in their school.

If anyone at Sandy Hook Elementary School had possessed a firearm with permission from school officials, maybe the first 15 minutes of killing could have been stopped! The principal who lunged her body to stop the 20 year old could have stopped him if she had a weapon. Instead she was at the mercy of the madman.

The criminal was allowed to kill at will until he feared the police were comming.

Thats the way it allways is. Criminals are cowards. They only respond to force.


(Outside, a nightmare version of the school was taking shape. Police officers swarmed with dogs and roared overhead in helicopters. There were armored cars and ambulances.

Inside, the librarians and children had been hiding in the closet for 45 minutes when a SWAT team arrived and escorted them out.

The children and adults only hope for immediate help was relying on their own responsibility for their own IMMEDIATE SAFETY. If the local "school officials" DENIED them this right they are also responsible for what happened!!!! Its the same everywhere wherever your right to defend yourself is DENIED by local, state or federal "officials".
Police and swat teams always are backups to your own immediate safety.

If you only rely on them as in this case it will usually be to late.) Story Reports


Connecticut school shootings: Survivors describe the attack

Connecticut school shootings: Survivors describe the attack

By Peter Applebome and Michael Wilson

NEWTOWN, Conn. -- Gradually, the group of anxious parents shrank and was gently ushered to wait in a back room in the old brick firehouse around the corner from Sandy Hook Elementary School.

The sounds of cartoons playing for other people's children came from another room, but this room was hushed. A police officer entered the room and put the parents' worst fears into words: Their children were gone. The wails that followed could be heard from outside.

The wails sounded the end of a horrifying shooting that took the lives of 20 children and six adults in the school.

It was about 9:30 a.m., when the school locks its doors to the outside world, demanding identification from visitors. What happened next sounded different depending on where you were in the school when a normal school day exploded.

Pops. Bangs. Thundering, pounding booms that echoed, and kept coming and coming. Screams and the cries of children ebbed, until there was only the gunfire.

Countless safety drills learned over generations kicked in. Teachers sprang to their doors and turned the locks tight. Children and adults huddled in closets, crawled under desks and crouched in classroom corners.

Laura Feinstein, a reading support teacher, reached for her telephone. "I called the office and said, 'Barb, is everything OK?' and she said, 'There is a shooter in the building.' "

"I heard gunshots going on and on and on," Feinstein said.

Even in the gym, the loudest room in any school
on a given day, something sounded very wrong. "Really loud bangs," said Brendan Murray, 9, who was there with his fourth-grade class. "We thought that someone was knocking something over. And we heard yelling and we heard gunshots. We heard lots of gunshots."

"We heard someone say, 'Put your hands up!' " Brendan said. "I heard, 'Don't shoot!' We had to go into the closet in the gym."

In the library, Yvonne Cech, a librarian, locked herself, an assistant and 18 fourth-graders in a closet behind file cabinets while the sound of gunfire thundered outside.

Witnesses said later that they heard as many as 100 gunshots but saw next to nothing in their hiding places. What was happening?

"Some people," a little girl said later, searching for words, "they got a stomachache."

The shooting finally stopped. Most teachers kept the children frozen in hiding. Some 15 minutes later, there was another sound, coming from the school intercom. It had been on the whole time. A voice said, "It's OK. It's safe now."

Brendan, in the gym, said, "Then someone came and told us to run down the hallway. There were police at every door. There were lots of people crying and screaming."

Run to the firehouse, the children were told. Shut your eyes and keep them shut and run. The Sandy Hook Volunteer Fire and Rescue station house is just down Dickerson Drive from the school.

Outside, a nightmare version of the school was taking shape. Police officers swarmed with dogs and roared overhead in helicopters. There were armored cars and ambulances.

Inside, the librarians and children had been hiding in the closet for 45 minutes when a SWAT team arrived and escorted them out.

Word spread quickly through the small town. At nearby Danbury Hospital, doctors and nurses girded for an onslaught of wounded victims.

"We immediately convened four trauma teams to be ready for casualties," a spokeswoman, Andrea Rynn, said. Nurses, surgeons, internal medicine and imaging specialists, as well as staff members from pathology and the hospital lab, rushed to assemble in the emergency room to receive an influx of patients from the shooting. An influx that never arrived. Only three victims came to the hospital. The rest were dead.

"I've been here for 11 years," Feinstein, the teacher, said. "I can't imagine who would do this to our poor little babies."

Another nurse who lives near the school hurried to the scene. "But a police officer came out and said they didn't need any nurses," she said. "So I knew it wasn't good."


(There are people in congress who want to deny you the right to defend yourself. They want you to rely on everyone else but yourself for your own safety and protection.

Some members of congress want to disarm you and leave you at the mercy of the criminal.

This not the only reason they want to disarm you, they also want you to be at the mercy of the centralized government police state.

Traitors to your right under the 2nd ammendment want to make it harder to purchase and own a weapon and in effect aid criminals.

Let me list what the state of Connecticuit lists as requirements to carry concealed or open.


1. Is twenty-one years of age;
2. Is a legal resident of the United States;
3. Has a residence or business in the jurisdiction in which they are applying;
4. Intends to use the handgun for only lawful purposes;
5. Is a “suitable person” to receive a permit;
6. Has successfully completed an approved handgun safety course;
7. Has not been convicted of a felony or a violation of;
a. Criminal possession of a narcotic substance;
b. Criminally negligent homicide;
c. Assault in the third degree;
d. Reckless endangerment in the firstdegree;
e. Unlawful restraint in the second degree;
f. Riot in the first degree;
g. Stalking in the second degree;
8. Has not been convicted as a delinquent for the commission of a serious juvenile offense;
9. Has not been discharged from custody within the preceding twenty years after having been found not guilty of a crime by reason of mental disease or defect;
10. Is not subject to a restraining or p[protective order issued by a court in a case involving the use, attempted use or threatened use of physical force against another person;
11. Is not subject to a firearms seizure order issued for posing a risk of personal injury to self or others after a hearing; or
12. Is not prohibited from possessing a firearm for having been adjudicated as a mentally incompetent under federal law.

Keep in mind this is needed to obtain a concealed or open carry permit that is leagal.

Requirments for a criminal to carry concealed or open:


As you can see its much safer to obtain a concealed or open carry permit lawfully for one to defend himself or others from those who:

1. Do not intend to to use the handgun for lawful purposes.

2. Is not a "suitable person" to have a gun.

3. Is a person convicted of a felony or possession of drugs.

4. Has been convicted of criminal offenses.

5. Has been convicted of having a mental desease or defect.

6. Have threatened physical force against another person.

7. Is mentally incompetent.

A US citizen who meets the requirments 1-12 in Connecticut or any other state in the union should be issued a permit to carry a concealed or open gun to defend themselves and others in schools especially. Story Reports

7 Common Mistakes of Concealed Carry Licensees & New Shooters

The HIDE-IT HOLSTER© was invented by my father-in-law, following the Luby's Cafeteria massacre in Killeen, Texas on Oct. 16, 1991. My father-in-law was running late to meet some friends at the restaurant for a meeting. Back at the restaurant, his friend was hiding under a table while she watched her family being murdered by a mad man with a gun, wishing she had brought her pistol that was in her car. My father-in-law's tardiness saved his life but many other lives were lost.

Later, it was reported that several patrons had guns in their cars but didn't bring them inside because carrying a gun is hard to hide, uncomfortable and inconvenient. Dedicated to making a difference, my father-in-law created The HIDE-IT HOLSTER©; the only concealed holster that holds over 500 different types of guns, hides the outlines, eliminates the need for an untucked shirt or a jacket and is the most comfortable to wear.

Since it's inception, The HIDE-IT HOLSTER© has become the fastest growing concealed carry holster used by off-duty and undercover officers. The HIDE-IT HOLSTER© is the perfect concealed carry solution. Today my wife and I are proud to carry on the tradition.
