Evil is subtle, a vapor in the mist.

Thoughts About Mass Murder by John Hinderaker – “the root cause of murder isn’t firearms or cars. It is evil.” The concept of evil is not clear to those who distance themselves from Christ and that distance is a clear and growing concern on many fronts.

“So, is there a solution to the problem of mass shootings? No, just as there is no solution to the problem of vehicle attacks. But some things can be done, as illustrated by the Sutherland Springs slaughter. I have two concrete suggestions.

First, more people should carry firearms.

Second, we could train people to respond more effectively to mass shooting incidents.

There is no ultimate solution to the problem of evil, which has been with us forever. But specifically with regard to mass shooting incidents, there are concrete steps that could be taken to limit their lethality.

Cruz: Democrats Filibustered Legislation That Would Have Resulted in Texas Church Shooter Being in Prison by Ian Hanchett – “Cruz said, “[T]his should have been stopped beforehand.”

Under federal law, it was illegal for this individual to purchase a firearm. He had a conviction for a crime that’s punishable by more than a year in prison, and he had a conviction for multiple domestic violence crimes. Both of those, it’s already ineligible. But, several things happened: Number one, the air force — the Obama administration didn’t report those convictions to the [NICS] database. That’s an endemic problem. It’s a problem with the federal government. It’s a problem with the states. And so, when he went in to buy the guns, they ran the background check, and they didn’t find it because it wasn’t in the database. But I’ll tell you we could have prevented this. In 2013, in the wake of Sandy Hook, I joined with Chuck Grassley, we introduced legislation that was called the Grassley-Cruz legislation. And it was aggressive legislation targeting felons and violent criminals to stop them from getting guns.”

Good Guy With a Gun May Have Saved Lots of Lives in Texas Church by Marta Hernandez – “despite the left’s continued attempts to laugh off assertions that good guys with guns do make a difference, the facts speak for themselves.”

Postcard from St Thomas by Sean – “I always wear Red-Cross attire when traveling on assignment. It often greases the skids at check-in, and also tends to ensure I will not get bumped or have my luggage whisked away.” Here is a volunteer’s perspective on the recovery operations after a hurricane disaster.

NCIS Newington on HamRadioNow at Southgate Amateur Radio News – “What we found in a quick scan was the usual butchering of radio procedure, along with a nice pat on the back. We missed a lot, and were promptly told about it in comments and email.” This is the reality of STEM as it is being portrayed by the Left’s Propaganda Machine.

Besides ‘handles’ and wacky call signs, one of the hams apparently had serious paranoid delusions, and we were all pretty much tossed under the anti-social bus. So we went back and picked out three sets of clips. … Gary and John are used to ham radio being inaccurately depicted in the general media, but Gary thinks this time we’re seeing some actual damage.

STEM is the acronym for science, technology.engineering, and mathematics with is all the rage in the education arena for the solution to everyone’s ills. That goes back to the Robert Frost quote noted a few posts below.
