A lot has happened lately to remind us of the eternal truth that we have been preaching; YOU are the First Responder.

The terrorist attack at the concert hall in Moscow was horrible, but we have to examine it and learn from it. What can American citizens do and how can they prepare to deal with the threats that we are facing? 

During our SOTG Homeroom, from SOTGU, we will address a deadly shark attack. What could have been done differently? Could the victim have been saved? Whose responsibility is it to be prepared to save a life?

Do you need an LPVO on your home defense rifle? During our Tech Talk from EOTech Inc. we will consider that question in depth. 

Thanks for being a part of SOTG! We hope you find value in the message we share. If you’ve got any questions, here are some options to contact us:

From www.shootingnewsweekly.com:

As if we needed still another example of the dangers of creating gun-free zones, especially among a largely disarmed populace, we now have last night’s attack by rifle-wielding Islamic State terrorists on a Moscow concert hall.

As in all of these situations, initial reports are frequently confused and incorrect in their details, but something known as ISIS-K, based in Afghanistan and Turkey, carried out an assault on Moscow’s Crocus City Hall concert venue apparently killing scores of people and setting the building on fire.

The New York Times puts the number of dead at over 60, but a later AP report quotes Russian officials claiming current number 133 dead with many more wounded.

Several camouflage-clad gunmen opened fire at a popular concert venue on the outskirts of Moscow on Friday night, killing about 60 people and wounding more than 100, Russian authorities said, making it the deadliest attack in the capital region in more than a decade.

Hours after the mayhem began, the Russian national guard said its officers were still looking for the attackers. State media agencies reported that there had been up to five perpetrators.

As gunshots boomed through the building containing the concert hall, one of the largest and most popular music venues in the Moscow area, fire erupted in the upper floors of the structure, and the blaze intensified after an explosion, causing the roof to collapse.
