TERRORIST AT THE MARKET - COULD YOU TAKE THE SHOT?

We will be continuing the series of discussion, noting the sort of soft target that the terrorist favors. Just last week, the Americans were on the spot and thwarted a terrorist. Today may be our turn. be ready. All one has to do is research the notable events in the past five years to get an idea. But one picture is worth 1,000 words.

Here we have the primary aisle of a market. A shot of about 80 yards. Picture the scene:

You just finished your Paleo Shopping and have an arm full of eggs, bacon, meat, and veggies. Then you hear the first shot as you turn the corner to get to the check out stand.

The terrorist is down there...somewhere. "Aloha Snackbar" and more shooting. As people clear the aisles in terror you see him. 65 yards away with an AK-47 and a bag full of magazines.

Could you change history with what you have in your belt right now...or are you just another witness?

Oh, and those noble courageous souls that carry "only for their own and their family's protection (and to hell with everyone else)" and will adamantly remind us of that, I will ask them this -

Your family is not always with you are they? Not at all. They are alone at school, at the store, and when you are at work. When you are with them, you are the protector...understood. And their safety is above all else. But when you are NOT with them, which is a sizeable amount of their day, do you want someone like me to intervene and save them? Or would it be acceptable for me flee to safety and allow them to die at the hands of the terrorist because I am armed "only for my own protection"?

Honest question is it not?
