Managing emergencies is a continuous process. The process requires us to examine the threats to our society and then requires us to take action. Obviously when we compare our country’s environment to the rest of the world we come up woefully short in the area of gun violence. What do we do about it? We allow prudent laws like the assault weapons ban to lapse. What king of leadership and management is that? What kind of leaders are we electing to help us as we navigate this life? What kind of people are running for office that do not have the courage to do what is best for this country? This is not a political issue this is a management and leadership issue.
Leaders and managers solve problems. Leaders and managers gather the resources necessary to end threats to our health and well-being. If we allow threats to life liberty and the pursuit of happiness to go unchecked how do we show we are committed to these principles. How are we the greatest nation on earth? We need to go back to the basics. Mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery activities are what we should be focused on. Prevent violence or reduce its effects. Gun control activities may not prevent gun violence but it can minimize its effects. So we need to take mitigative action it is that simple. We need courageous leaders who sacrifice for the American people. One of the greatest threats to Americans is gun violence. Where are the leaders who will put their career on the line for the good of the American people? If more Americans are killed each year due to gun violence than all the Americans who died in the Vietnam war then we need leaders who are capable of stopping that threat. Our prayers are with the families of those affected by this tragedy.
