Bay City is officially honoring June 2, 2016, as National Gun Violence Awareness Day. Bay City Mayor Kathleen Newsham made a proclamation at a City Commission meeting Monday, May 16, calling for gun owners to be extra careful with their firearms, especially around children.

The color represents the "Wear Orange" campaign, which advocates for the gun violence awareness day. The video above shows Newsham making the proclamation, which can be read in full, here.

"The days of just hiding under your desk ... those days are gone."

So warns Port Huron Public Safety Director Michael Reaves, who is among a growing number of law enforcement officials recommending an assertive response to an active shooter situation.

Port Huron Police are one of three St. Clair County agencies now offering to introduce ALICE to schools, businesses and organizations. Officials say ALICE — alert, lockdown, inform, counter, evacuate — is a best protocol for surviving an active killer.

"We believe this training is critical," Reaves said.

"A lot of killings can happen in five minutes."

Submitter's note: I think that says it all.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
There are other things so clearly out of the power of Congress, that the bare recital of them is sufficient, I mean the "...rights of bearing arms for defence, or for killing game..." These things seem to have been inserted among their objections, merely to induce the ignorant to believe that Congress would have a power over such objects and to infer from their being refused a place in the Constitution, their intention to exercise that power to the oppression of the people. —ALEXANDER WHITE (1787)
