Last night, I attended the ALICE community presentation, a joint effort of the Alaska State Troopers, the Fairbanks Police Department, the North Pole Police Department and the school district to present the information, reasoning and training for a shift in active shooter response at schools. ALICE stands for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter and Evacuate, which are the key components of the training that “empowers individuals to make proactive response decisions rather than follow a passive, mandated, one-size-fits-all response protocol.”
|Ms. "Alaskan Mom" is laboring under a misconception drilled into her head by anti-gun propaganda. Most gun owners know that "gun safety" is a euphemism that really means "citizen control". It is the illegitimate, cynical appropriation of a phrase that literally means "training in the rules of safely handling firearms".
Most gun owners do NOT support "gun safety" as represented by the left. That is a shibboleth.
Would she rather have her kids trained and protected, or ignorant, vulnerable and DEAD?
