When seconds count, the police are only minutes away.

The only laws that cannot be broken are the laws of physics. Even the best, cleanest, most responsive police department cannot respond instantly. In every case like this, when the police are able to arrive (after someone has finally been in a position to notify them), the shooter has already claimed most or all of his victims, and has frequently (as in this case and those of Cho Seung-hui and Jiverly Wong) already killed himself.

An armed citizenry is the only thing that can protect us from armed deranged individuals.

Over the past couple days we've been hearing a whole lot about deadly rampages that have occured throughout America, but what we haven't heard much about are the deadly rampages that have been prevented thanks to armed, trained, responsible security and citizens. Yesterday in San Antonio, an off-duty police officer prevented mass murder after taking out a gunman before he could kill anyone.

Gunfire erupted at the Mayan Palace Theatre on Southwest Military Sunday night just before 9:30 pm. This shooting comes just days after a deadly rampage at a school in Connecticut and sparks memories...
