Nevermind The Gun Control, Bring On The National Suicide Squads


You want to know how crazy things have become in the United States?

Well, just get a load out of the following, from the newest big hire at CorpMedia's biggest online organ, 'The Daily Beast'.

More specifically, former Atlantic staff writer Megan McArdle.

Which means that (Jack Webb/Dragnet style)...

The codswallop you are about to read is most decidedly NOT coming from the whackadoodle dandiest of far, far, far, far right fringe dwellers:

"...I'd also like us to encourage people to gang rush shooters, rather than following their instincts to hide; if we drilled it into young people that the correct thing to do is for everyone to instantly run at the guy with the gun, these sorts of mass shootings would be less deadly, because even a guy with a very powerful weapon can be brought down by 8-12 unarmed bodies piling on him at once..."

You got that?

If not, I'll translate the latest from she who is affectionately known by some as 'McMegan':

"...In the face of automatic weapon-wielding psychopaths schoolchildren and their teachers should rush the shooter because that way only 10 or 20 or 30 of them will die..."

Because, after all, it is a well-known fact that decreasing the number of guns in crazy peoples' pantries, basements, gym lockers and jewelry boxes just doesn't work.

Or some such demonstrably false, bullshit-type thing.


Shamelessly swiped and re-worked a little from somewhat popular blogger (TM), TBogg...

Precisely the opposite of what first aid attendants are taught to do when confronted with a dangerous individual who does not even have a firearm or three.

It's insane.

And these people, people like McMegan and her ilk (and their paymasters) who are hiding in their gated communities, VIP boxes and Super-Elite airport lounges where the psycopaths cannot easily go, know it.

Know it with absolute certainty.

What rock do these people crawl out from under anyway? How insane. Why didn't she rush right over and tackle him?

It was a public school, was it not?

Thus, the privileged of this world, especially the Connecticut world, wouldn't be caught dead letting their children (not to mention their Nannies) anywhere near the place.

(as for their Nannies children?....well, that's a different story)

'Forward, the Light Brigade!
Charge for the guns' she said:
Into the face of Death they charged.

Theirs but to do and die:
Into the face of Death they charged.

Cannon to right of them,
Cannon to left of them,
Cannon in front of them
Volley'd and thunder'd;
Storm'd at with shot and shell,
Boldly ran McMegan's swell.

Into the jaws of Death,
Into the mouth of Hell.
