What can you do?

Over on Joe's Crabby Shack, where you'll find the latest on the Nebraska Mall shooting, Joe gives a list of things you can do in the aftermath of yet another gun-free zone shooting.

"In the meantime, there are things you can do to help.

   1) Contact your local businesses with "no guns" signs. Encourage them politely to rethink them.
   2) Contact your lawmakers. Ask them to help you protect yourself by either passing CCW or easing off some of the more Draconian restrictions.
   3) Get some training. Slow fire at paper while standing still is not good enough.
   4) Think about what you will do if this happens to you.
   5) Talk about this with your significant other and family, including children. Work out a plan of what to do, when to do it, and how to do it. Take it seriously.
   6) Keep this in mind when you go to vote. There are candidates at all levels who want the entire world to be a victim-zone. Find out which candidate will protect your rights and vote for him or her.
   7) When you talk about this with others, keep the "I am Rambo" rhetoric out of it. If they want to blame the gun, explain that the tool cannot change or choose who who wields it. Explain the difference in automatic vs. semi-automatic, explain how this was not an assault rifle.
   8) Help the cause. Donate to the NRA, GOA, SAF, CCRKBA. Volunteer for a pro-gun candidate. Lobby your lawmakers on gun rights. Take someone shooting. Educate one person.
   9) Play "what if." Pretend you are attacked RIGHT NOW!!! What would you do? Be realistic.
   10) Do something. Don't shake your head and go, 'What a punk.' Pick an action off this list (or several) and do something to help."
