A Colorado teen died fighting like a hero against the vile, cowardly bullies who attacked the STEM School in Highlands Ranch, Colorado. We have two other examples of young people who showed courage in the face of evil.

Our SWAT Fuel Warrior of the Week has a question instructing and understanding priorities when it comes to traumatic life-saving. What acronym can we use to remember what steps to take and when to take them?

Also, during our Quiet Time segment from SilencerShop.com, Professor Paul has some recommended reading that goes along with our main topic. Tune in and be sure to listen louder.

A 12-year-old boy caught up in a US school shooting has revealed he armed himself with a baseball bat because he wanted to “go down fighting”.

Sixth-grader Nate Holley was at STEM School Highlands Ranch in Denver on Tuesday when two students opened fire in the school, killing one and injuring eight others.

“I had my hand on a metal baseball bat just in case,” Nate told CNN. “Because I was going to go down fighting if I was going to go down.”

When a gunman opened fire in a University of North Carolina at Charlotte classroom, sending people diving for cover and rushing toward a door, student Riley Howell charged and knocked into the shooter, police say.

Howell died for his efforts, shot by the gunman he rushed. But he was the “first and foremost hero” in bringing Tuesday evening’s shooting to an end, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Chief Kerr Putney said.

“He took the fight to the assailant,” Putney said Wednesday. “Unfortunately, he had to give his life to do so, but he saved lives doing so.”

Erickson used a Facebook post to express opposition to Christians: “You know what I hate? All these Christians who hate gays, yet in the bible, it says in Deuteronomy 17:12-13, if someone doesn’t do what their priest tells them to do, they are supposed to die. It has plenty of crazy stuff like that. But all they get out of it is ‘ewwwwww gays.'”
