Football Coach Keanon Lowe took down and controlled a man who brought a shotgun into Parkrose High School in Portland, OR, yesterday. An act of heroism of the highest order. We have been seeing more people fighting back, taking the fight to these wannabe terrorists – and some have paid dearly. But in doing so, they have saved many lives. I am glad to see the names of heroes being brought forward in the news moreso lately than the names of the offenders. We need to let the wannabe terrorists know that they will make those of their subduers household names, and not their own.
A while back I posted videos of long gun disarms as food for thought. No idea what Lowe used other than the combative attributes he developed through football, his security guard training, and his warrior spirit, but these are some possible applications.
