Lessons Learned from Mumbai

There’s been a RAND study on the issue.  It would be harder to pull off here, and having more people running around who know how to handle guns is part of the reason why.  I include police in that.  Even in New York City, I would expect the police to do a lot better than the police did in Mumbai, who often had little to no weapons training.

The United States indulges in security theater quite often too, but in general, we have a healthy “gun culture” and we expect our police, and armed citizens, to know how to handle a firearm.

    Sorry I didn’t get to you before Instapundit did! But I suspect you got a lot more traffic from him :)

    Yeah, but i suspect that you send me a better class of reader ;(Or at least readers who are willing to entertain the thought that CCW holders might serve a valuable role in a Mumbai style attack).
