Ed-vise: Guns and Rallys

A run off a sleeping dude GOOD MORNING!!! to you all! Yup, #1 daughter ran off a sleeping person at her job. Just a dude taking a nap after. He deserved it for drinking White Claws…sissy!

What Would You Do Wednesday Ed-vise today. Cause it’s WEDNESDAY! And I do love WEDNESDAYS!

31 so called patriots were recently arrested in Coeur D’Alene Idaho recently.

All piled into the back of a Uhaul, they were on there way to start a bunch of fights and riot at an LGBTQ/ Pride rally.

Or, perhaps they were on there way to support and join. That aside, they were probably on their way to riot against the LGBTQ.

On a bit of a side-history note, back in the 70s, the gay community was not afraid to beat the hell out of anyone who was homophobic. In public. From what I have been told, the gay community in Frisco has zero fear of violence. Reason being that for so many years they had to hide and were beaten up that now, they don’t play.

That was a side note

Back on topic.

Another recent protest I saw via social media (learned it on Tik Tok) was an anti gun protest where several people, with guns and bull horns, showed up.

The video did not show what happened in total. Couple of confrontations, no real violence.

What Would You Do if you were at a rally of any sort and several people with guns showed up?

No matter the message of your rally, the tone just changed. Armed people showed up. Now, lethal violence is close at hand. It will not take much for the bullets to fly.

At rally’s, things go violent pretty quick. Especially up here in Portlandia. I cannot recall the last Portland rally that did NOT end up in violence of some sort. That being said, as I always say, have an exit strategy for such events.

When things go south, where will you go? If you run with the mob like the Running of the Bulls in Pomplona, you run the serious risk of tripping and being trampled. Know how to exit the massive body movement.

If you are with a group, where will you meet up? Always have a location to meet. Just like when you were a kid at a theme park and your parents said “if you get lost meet us here.” Same thing…meet back…wherever.

Now, what about the person with the rifle that shows up? Great question.

Protests are about making people uncomfortable. And a person with an AR showing up would definitely make people uncomfortable. So, here is a recommendation for those who have trained to fight: get really close to the person with the rifle. Like “uncomfortably” close. Avoid touching them. Just really close into their personal space.

What this does is prevents them from raising the rifle easily. It basically jams them up. Even does the same with handgun. Get close and stay close. If you trained, and they move to attempt raising the firearm, you can take them down. Then work to disarm.

This is a RECOMMENDATION and should be trained! It will help. Best thing is to step away and rally another day.

I’m just saying

That’s it for today. Take care of yourselves. Check in on each other and remember if you get an online medical degree you become a…GOOGLE DOC! HAHAHAHAHHAHAHA
