Totally unreal. Seems like it took way to long for the police to get there. It always makes me mad when I hear the 911 asking so many questions. I know it's there job but seems so invasive at such a horrible time. I was totally surprised at how calm the woman was.

That's why I have a VERY heavy hitting dog and am ALWAYS armed. It sure did seem like a long PD response time.

This is a rural part of Arizona. I've done some training with Pinal County LEOs to the north. I asked what their worst-case response time was; the answer was "45 minutes at 100 miles an hour." Pima County, where this shooting took place, is even more rural outside of Tucson city limits.

Whether the response time is 5 minutes or 1 hour is really irrelevant most of the time -- you can be just as dead either way if you are one of those who thinks "crime won't happen to me". Sure would be nice if we could get people to shed that attitude!
Anti-gunners seem to believe that if we just pass enough laws, we can have utopia. Unfortunately, utopia is NOT one of our choices.

Basic violation of the Rule of Stupids- don't let a dope dealer be your SO and the odds of bad stuff happening decrease dramatically.
