As I said in August of 2007:

But there is a larger lesson here. Don't let a man with a gun have his way with you. Do not follow instructions. Fight back.

I said this at the time of Virginia Tech tragedy: these kids should have rushed the shooter. Better to die fighting than die kneeling.

I had a talk with a Virginia state officer at a party on Sunday who was dispatched to VT and his view was identical to mine. Don't curl up and wait to be shot. Grab a chair and rush the shooter.

Perhaps we could adopt the phrase "Let's Roll" as an agreed on signal for joint action. One person yells "Let's Roll," and everyone, EVERYONE, attacks the gunman.

Fight back!

Live or die with honor.
