As for the military, you tell me. Did basic training include any instruction in civilian crisis intervention? Did you have any training or preparation having to do with panicking crowds, maintaining communication, minimizing damage, security procedures, and so on? Or was it basically the first half of Full Metal Jacket?

She's a police woman. She has received that training, especially after 14 or however many years she's been on the force. She could (and, I'll bet, did) just yell out "Police!" and she and the other cop formed a team and took him down.


I'm just saying Texas has a much more enthusiastic gun culture than, say, Connecticut, where 20-year-old Lanza wasn't old enough to legally own a handgun.
So you are saying that soldiers many who have been in fire fights are not trained enough to carry a gun? Training that makes them very familiar with their weapons and the reaction training of identifying friendly or enemy in crisis situations
