With all the random acts of violence out there in the world, this holiday season brings two distinct things to two distinct groups. To many it is a time of gladness and joy over the birth of Christ or the miracle of Hanukkah. To others it is an opportunity to commit crime or acts of evil.
I remember a quote attributed to a bank robber back in the day. When asked by a reporter why he robbed banks the bank robber replied “because that’s where the money is”.
So too, during our festive holiday buying fest, will those with evil intent find the things they desire; namely targets and opportunity. For a mass shooter there really isn’t a better time or place than during holiday shopping at a mall to go off. Most malls follow the inane policy of being “gun free zones”, they’re jam packed with people who aren’t paying attention and the security tops out at a couple of guys with flashlights and a radio.

It’s basically a ticking time bomb waiting for some crackpot to try and make himself infamous by racking up a huge body count. To a lesser degree these places (specifically the parking lots) are places where violent criminals can take advantage of the season to rob those with money or goods, rape those under the cover of an early night, or just carjack the entire kit and kaboodle because people are focusing on sales and lists and not paying attention to their own well being let alone the well being of others.
That is where the advice of “Be Wary, Be Ready, Be Armed” comes into play.

Great article, thanks for posting it. We need to be aware of our surroundings and be armed when we venture out. Screw the gun free zones - if it's legal to carry, then carry with discretion.
