Lessons from Mumbai

I'll make this short and sweet; just like Columbine and Virginia Tech, the tragedy at Mumbai ought to remind us that when life and death is a matter of seconds, the police are only minutes or hours away. If you're not ready for a carry permit for whatever reason, pepper spray can be obtained in most places for less than $10 (can't carry it on a plane, though), and there are any number of places where one can get training in basic methods of self-defense.

I just learned that saying from my cousin, a second amendment advocate - when seconds count, the police are only minutes away.

Yep. Yet it's a lesson that some people never seem to learn, BB.
