It’s Seconds, Stupid

When I was in law enforcement, we were continually trying to shave a minute or two off our response time to emergency calls, like domestic violence situations. We figured that if we got there a minute or two sooner we might prevent the victim, then usually a wife, from receiving a few less hits or kicks or whatever. It’s different today. With mass shootings, minutes don’t matter, it’s seconds. That’s right, seconds. With the mentality of today’s perpetrators and/or the firepower they cradle in their hands lives can be wasted and injuries inflicted in seconds. Law enforcement always does its absolute best to respond as quickly as possible, but they aren’t always available and/or nearby, which is why we need good guys with guns in every venue.
