Armed police in Mumbai wouldn’t shoot. Check out all the links and comments at Instapundit.
Force Science Institute research at Minnesota State University found that even naive shooters are effective in mid to close combat ranges that such an attack would entail. Their research covered police engagements with inexperienced shooters but it has relevance here. Even a complete neophyte can be effective in a gun fight. What is needed is a willingness to engage.
Something to keep in mind when CCW laws are debated in your state.
More on the police who wouldn’t shoot. And how to prevent, or at least mitigate, attacks like this one. For example, check out the Appleseed Project. Great idea!
One more reason not to depend on the government to rescue you. This would be comical if it weren’t so tragic.
Take a lesson from a SEAL on how to have a good one.
Michael Ledeen has more.
An analysis of Gore’s “Climate Change Killed the Mayans” claim.
It means that Gore is advocating the abandonment of the IPCC doctrine and barracking for the study and understanding of climate dynamics that ignores totally the IPCC/AWG doctrine and focuses on all the other variables, especially how climate dynamics are driven by atmospheric/oceanic oscillations, the natural internal dynamics of the climate system and the role of the Sun in climate dynamics.
That is if Gore understands what he just said. Anybody care to take that bet?
Spotted outside a gun shop. I’m guessing it predates the election.
Good luck with that.
