Last Sunday in an interview on 60 Minutes DC Police Chief Cathy Lanier said that if you can take out an active shooter, do it. She noted that even the best police response time will be 5-7 minutes. NYPD Police Commissioner Bill Bratton disagreed with that advice saying essentially it was a good way to get killed. He didn’t think a person with a handgun could take out someone with an AK-47 as they would be “outgunned”.
The NSSF video below shows the contradictions in what Lanier says and what Bratton says.
However, the problem in both New York and the District of Columbia is that Joe Average can’t get a carry permit. Donald Trump has a carry permit but he also now has Secret Service protection. Michael Bloomberg doesn’t need a carry permit because he has a swarm of armed guards around him all the time. The bottom line is that a lot of people will get killed in either city before the cops arrive.

"He didn't think a person with a handgun could take out someone with an AK-47 as they would be 'outgunned'." What a moron.
Has he never heard of Charl Van Wyk ("Sharl van VEEK")? He turned away a bunch of terrorists who were going to KILL EVERYONE in a church in South Africa with AK-47's and grenades. Charl had only a 5-shot J-frame revolver. Well, that and the strength, courage and skill the Lord gave him. Listen to the interview Mike Seeklander did with van Wyk: http://americanwarriorshow.libsyn.com/south-african-interview
So according to the daft NYPD Police Commissioner Bill Bratton, I suppose that the NYPD should be slinging M4s because they may encounter a terrorist with an AK-47. Maybe they should mount .50 caliber M2s to their vehicles just in case so they will not be outgunned.
Aw hell, just blast off and nuke the site from orbit, just to be sure.
If this turd let New Yorkers arm themselves like the Second Amendment guarantees, we would see less crime and a general defense against terrorism.
