D.C. Police Chief: If You’ve Got A Clear Shot At A Terrorist, Take It

This is welcome.

D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier has a piece of advice for you if you’re packing heat in her jurisdiction when some jackass opens fire on innocent civilians: Take the shot.

She’ll say that on the tube tonight during a 60 Minutes segment that’s sure to make gun control activists wail and gnash their teeth in anguish.

“Your options are run, hide or fight,” Lanier tells Anderson Cooper in the segment. “The facts of the matter is that most active shooters kill most of the victims in 10 minutes or less. The best police department in the country is going to be about a five minute to seven minute response.”

Just like Second Amendment activists have said all along.

“I always say if you can get out, getting out is your first option, your best option,” she continued. “If you’re in a position to try and take the gunman down, take the gunman out, it’s the best option for saving lives before police can get there. And that’s kind of counterintuitive to what cops always tell people. We always tell people, ‘don’t take action, call 911, don’t intervene in the robbery.’ We’ve never told people, ‘take action.’ This is a different scenario.”

Well said. We’re all Minutemen now.
