I believe it's because the relatively few people who have actually been in combat or civilian life-or-death situations and try to post what it's like reacting in all the confusion with no information on what is actually happening are swamped by all the chest-beating, game-playing, non-trained majority of posters.
Monday morning quarterbacking, no different than anything else. Those that can go out and do something about it, those that can't post about what they imagine they would do. Most city folk seem to have a realistic view of the amount of protection they can expect from law enforcement, while rural folk are unpleasantly surprised when something happens and the sheriff doesn't immediately appear.
