    Thank you Rob, William, Shannon. I gained several ideas that i hope I will never use, but I’m glad you made me think about them. The first fifteen- twenty minutes I had WiFi problems. Will the broadcast be available for viewing at a later time?

    Thanks for more quality work to Rob and William! Always worth the time to spend watching their work.


    What are the chances of talking someone already committed to violence into submission? Is it reality or suicide?

    Hi. Why is it, that when a mass-shooting happens, there are a percentage of people in society who focus on banning the ar-15 rifle without mentioning banning semi-auto hand guns? The Virginia Tech shooter had two hand guns(9mm and 22lr) and was able to kill 33 victims and wounded 17 others. There are a lot of liberals who own a hand gun, but want to ban the ar-15 rifle. Go figure.

    How much of the social violence that seems to be on the rise, do you attribute to the violent nature of action graphic video games, and the Hollywood culture of realistic crime-drama movies that tend to desensitize society?

    Is prior victim status more relevant to individual conflict? Middle schools, elementary schools seem to be more about a class of victim rather than prior status. Workplace is a place where prior status may be more relevant.

    I was attacked, but refused to be a victim, and disarmed and disabled my attacker. That was before I obtained my LTC – but constantly reinforces the need to be alert.

    I am new to shooting. I am still training and not ready to carry. I live in MA and my question is– if I respond w/ a gun in the face of this type of mass shooting, how will I be held responsible? I just completed SIG handgun 103 and we were provided w/ MA gun relating to lethal weapon use. Thank you.

    Your thoughts about the FBI not following up on the 2 warnings about the Florida School Shooter -> Perhaps they want these Mass shootings to promote Gun Control ???

    Consider that the gun that will be used in the next mass shooting has already been purchasedand that background check is worthless.

    Hi William and Rob. How do I convince members of my congregation that the ‘pre-need’ to allow a member conceal carry security force is indeed a need. Some are on board and some are not.

    I’ve been blessed to be an Agriculture Science Teacher for 35 years. Ever since the Columbine HS attack i’ve spent a lot of time thinking about different scenarios and how to react. Our school prohibits faculty from carrying any weapons at all. My wife and I have three grown children and I would love to spoil any grandchildren I blessed with in the future as opposed to making the “Ultimate Sacrifice” for my students. I’ve been to FEMA’s and HLS Active Shooter Online training websites and wasn’t overly impressed. I’m looking forward to a fresh perspective and new ideas.!
