Director of Mayors Against
Illegal Guns Says ‘Don’t
Shoot’ If Someone Comes At
You With a Deadly Weapon

Washington Free Beacon, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 8/3/2013 5:46:09 AM

Executive Director of Mayors Against Illegal Guns Mark Glaze gave some ambiguous and potentially dangerous self defense advice Friday on “Hardball.” Glaze, speaking in opposition to “Stand Your Ground” laws, said in a circumstance where someone “comes at you” with an axe handle one should attempt to either “talk,” “fight with your fists,” “run away,” or “deescalate the situation,” but not shoot the attacker: MARK GLAZE: Very often somebody will come at you. They might want to have a fistfight. They might come at you with an ax handle. CHRIS MATTHEWS: Would you consider the guy with the ax handle armed or not?

What the hell is an illegal gun? Illegal possession of a gun is something different. These Mayors Against Illegal Guns are against all guns period! They want to destroy the 2nd Amendment and self defense. They want to be like the Euroweanies where if someone is beating you with an ax handle and you injure the attacker you go to jail not the attacker because only the police can defend you. Good grief how stupid are these liberal mayors?

Another example of the lengths to which ideologues are prepared to go when they ideology conflicts with reason and common sense. This mayor cannot be as stupid as he sounds. Stupidity, indeed, would be some kind of an excuse. He is not stupid but dishonest. He is being consciously, deliberately dishonest and absurd in a comical attempt to defend his ideological position.

This is serious business. One can do something at times with stupid or ignorant people, but nothing can be done with zealots, dogmatists and dishonest ideologues who will go to any length to enforce their personal obsessions on others.

What if there are 2 attackers with ax handles?
Do you ask them to wait their turn while you deescalate the situation?

If you take my advise deescalate by shooting each of them. There now, everything is calm.

All ‘wouda, couda, shoulda’ guesses by people who likely have never found themselves in potentially life threatening situations. It surely must be easy to pontificate about what ‘should be done’ when your security detail is lounging ten feet away. But when real situations occur decisions have to be made instinctively. There usually isn’t time to logically think out scenarios and possible solutions, to figure out if the attacker is nuts, vindictive, autistic or whatever. An enraged person can beat down and/or kill with his bare fists. An armed person would have to be a complete fool not to use his weapon just because his/her attacker didn’t have equal firepower.

An open letter to:

Mark Glaze

Sir, I have read your comments to Mr. Matthews and have researched you to gain an understanding of your back-ground. I believe some fleshing out of your scenario is appropriate.

If the individual in question is of slight frame using an old axe handle as a cane because of a bad leg, talking to him to de-escalate the situation is the last thing you should do. If you are a decent human being you are going to provide him support as he walks with you.

If on the other hand he is beligerant, in full possession of his motive skills, and advancing towards you with the axe handle gripped in his hands, when he is 20 feet away you had better be considering how you are going to access your weapon. An axe handle is 48 inches in length. A man 6 ft tall has a reach of 36 inches. That 20 ft distance can be covered in 1.5 seconds. Once the challenger has covered 14 feet you are at risk.

Nobody is obligated to be a punching bag for a beligerant simply because the beligerant was smart enough not to carry a weapon. I have studied your photos sir, you do not have a face that evidences much experience with pugalist. Your nose is unbroken, there is no evidence of skin damage from black-eyes nor of missing teeth.

But if you wish to practice what you preach, by all means, please do so. However, be advised that you cannot rely on a private body guard and remain true to your words.

Old School Banker

Those guys are all boneheads. Someone attacking you with an axe handle or a knife can kill you very quickly, and then you would be just as dead as if someone shot you with a gun.

The liberal anti-gun crowd of couse also oppose the concealed carry laws that are now in force across the nation, in that respect they are indirectly attacking those laws by attempting to severely limit the right of self-defense during violent encounters with criminals. Because if a law abiding person were to no longer have a right of self-defense with a firearm in most cases, that would be a big reason in their minds to completely do away with the concealed carry laws.

#13 displays the ignorance of libtards for all to see. Someone within 7 meters is in the red zone. That´s the ´rubicon´ for when you shoot them if you want to have any hope of avoiding injury or death (yours). And to #13 I´d say, what if the ´autistic´ person decided to stick that butter knife in your left eye? Think that might injure or kill you? Unless you´re psychic, in those situations you don´t know what they´re going to do.
The libtards are so helpless, and lack the training, knowledge and experience to do anything other than shut-up and do what the grownups tell them to do. Which might explain why they act as the lemmings they are, with their collectivist overseers directing their feelings, thoughts and actions.

I would pay good money to watch Mark Glaze take his own advice.

Those of you (and you know who you are, don´t you...) who think for one second that a person with a weapon who is 20 feet away from you does NOT constitute a lethal threat should look up the name Dennis Tueller.

(There is a name for people who believe this. They are normally called "the deceased" particularly in newspaper accounts of such incidents.)

Sgt Tueller is the police training officer who demonstrated conclusively that the average man can cover the 21 feet between you and kill you with the weapon he is holding before even a trained defender can draw and fire a firearm.

The "Tueller drill" is named in his honor. It is, shall we say, an eye opening experience.

Current thinking is generally that Tueller may have been too conservative in "drawing the line" at 21 feet.

ETA: Tueller´s conclusion was that said average person (attacker) cancover that distance in an average timeof 1.5 seonds.

I won´t even begin to point out how much damage even a fatally wounded attacker can inflict in the 14 secons or so before his brain function shuts down. People shot with a handgun only drop like a stone in the movies.

AUSTIN — A Texas judge was expected to seat a grand jury Monday in an investigation into whether Gov. Rick Perry abused his power by vetoing funding for public corruption prosecutors last year. Special State District Judge Bert Richardson was to oversee the impaneling in Austin. The governor’s office didn’t return messages seeking comment, but The Austin-American Statesman and KVUE-TV reported that Perry took the unusual step of hiring a criminal defense attorney to represent him. The attorney, David Botsford, did not return calls from The Associated Press seeking comment. In June, the governor threatened to veto funding approved by the Texas Legislature

A Texas man was sentenced yesterday to 18 months in state prison for urinating on the Alamo. Daniel Athens, a 23-year-old El Paso resident, pleaded guilty earlier this year to a criminal mischief charge in connection with the April 2012 incident at the Texas shrine. While Athens could have faced a maximum of two years in custody, a plea deal saved him up to six months in custody. Athens was also ordered to pay $4000 in restitution by District Judge Ray Olivarri. Since Athens is not eligible for parole, he will have to serve the entirety of his 18-month sentence. As detailed

When I first started hearing people on the political left describe themselves with some frequency as progressive back in the 1990s, the term did not seem tethered to the epoch-defining, early-20th-century spasm of moral crusading and government centralization that helped give us everything from trust busting to Prohibition to the Federal Reserve. As articulated by champions like Ralph Nader and Molly Ivins, the progressive label was both a way to get out from under the generation-old baggage of liberal-a term Ronald Reagan and others had turned into an epithet-and to differentiate lefties from seemingly apologetic triangulators like Bill Clinton and

Over 80 members of the Brandeis University faculty sent a letter to the school’s president earlier this month, demanding the school withdraw its honorary degree invitation to women’s rights activist and critic of Islam Ayaan Hirsi Ali. Brandeis rescinded the invitation to Hirsi Ali last week, prompting a public backlash from Hirsi Ali’s supporters. In the April 6 letter, faculty members called on Brandeis President Fred Lawrence to drop Hirsi Ali from the ceremony because of comments she has made about her opposition to Islam. “We are writing to urge you to rescind immediately the invitation to Ms. Ayaan Hirsi

Bad as Obama’s poll numbers are, they bode worse for Congressional Democrats. Obama is being buoyed by continued strong support from Democrat voters. The problem for Congressional Democrats is that November’s election outcome will not be determined in Democrat strongholds. Recent Quinnipiac polling data (released April 2, of 1,578 registered voters nationwide, with a MOE of +/-2.5%) showed the president with a deeply negative rating on his handling of the economy: 40% approval and 55% disapproval. In his sixth year in office, and the fifth year after the recession, 74% of respondents still rated the economy as “not so good” to

During her brief but lucrative stint as president of Wal-Mart’s charitable foundation in 2012, Sylvia Matthews Burwell received at least $750,000 in bonuses from an organization that doles out hundreds of millions of dollars in contributions but keeps a tight lid on its own compensation practices, records show. Ms. Burwell spent a little more than a year running Wal-Mart’s foundation before President Obama tapped her to be his budget chief last year — and then last week asked her to take over as health and human services secretary.

The Supreme Court has made pretty clear that putting your money where your mouth is deserves broad protection as a form of free political speech. The justices are about to consider whether outright lying in a campaign deserves a similar First Amendment shield. The court’s recent decisions easing the flow of generous campaign contributions already shifted the electoral landscape. If the court finds that even the most patently outrageous statements about candidates may not be barred by law, those two decisions combined could expand the rhetorical battlefield of the midterm elections and raise the attack ad volume as never before.

And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

President Obama pulled a surprise move Monday at the White House’s Easter Prayer Breakfast when he selected Gene Robinson to lead the closing prayer. Robinson is famously known as the first openly gay Episcopal bishop. Talking Points Memo’s Tom Kludt spotted the following tweet from Robinson, who was in attendance: (Tweet) Robinson, 66, became diocesan bishop of New Hampshire in March 2004. He retired in January 2013 and is currently a senior fellow at the progressive

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of
