If sarah brady had her way that man would have been murdered.

So the guy decides to rob him, or worse. That's gratitude for ya.

Depends where you are. People don't want to give departments more money until a methhead zombie is beating down their door. Also, Friday and Saturday nights are usually busy. When a crackhead was at my door, punching me, it took the deputies 18 minutes. It took two rounds of pepper spray, the first didn't last long enough and he came back for more.

Ten minutes is really pretty quick for most of the places Ive lived.

Im glad the gentleman made out ok. Sad that someone he'd been trying to help would seek to rob him. But that seems to be the general answer to honest help now.

Ten minutes is really not bad around here either. Glad he didn't have to shoot the Bg's. Gratitude seems to as lost as kindness is today. Sad.

If this had happened in a remote location like Henton West Virginia or some places in central Virginia, I'm sure the wait time could have exceeded 45 minutes. Yet the anti-gun will always resort to the "call the police who will save the day" mentality. Why would you need a gun. Some people must believe that Superman and Batman must really exist.

Unless there has actually been a shooting, average response time where I live is 1hr. 45 min. IF they show at all.
