I should probably clarify that my comments are from the perspective of an old cop and gun-toter from way back. I expect things of myself that I do not require of anyone else.
I stated earlier that I have no truck with any private citizen who avoids a confrontation with a rampaging active shooter. And yes, if you're running around waving a gun when de po-po show up, it could end badly for you. You need to think about that, and whether you and your gun are up to the fight, before covering distance toward the threat, instead of away from it.
I'm inclined to think if a man hasn't gotten his point across in 4912 attempts, 4913 probably isn't going to do it.
