  •  Why no tranquilizers? (0+ / 0-)

    Sure, they might have proven fatal, too, especially with police formulations meant to stop "angel dust hopped up super demons," but it seems to me that we can stop bears in about thirty seconds, and someone who is this frail might well fall to a tranquilizer.

    It just seems like a better first shot than the one that stills all life.

    Everyone's innocent of some crime.

      don't shoot at you. Yes, there would have been ways I would have hoped this could have ended rather than the way it did.

      An active shooter is handled a certain way by police. A person with dementia can have a gun. It will probably happen more an more as baby boomers reach a certain age still carrying their freedom guns.

      I am sure when you sink into dementia, your guns are not taken.
