LEO confused?

WilmMan said: "It will probably take LEO that much longer to enter a building because they will have no idea who is the bad guy and who is just carrying a weapon." This is a popular talking point with absolutely zero basis in fact. Although people conceal carry in more than 40 States there has not been a single example of this made up scenario. The fact is that Police always have to be on the lookout for armed citizens, undercover officers, and off duty officers. They have very specific protocol to go through when they encounter someone with a gun. They will order the person with a gun to drop the weapon. If it is a good citizen he or she will obey. Otherwise it will be the shooter who will either run, shoot him or herself, or start shooting at the Officers. Additionally, FBI statistics show that most gunfights last well less than a minute. Since the Police will be minutes away at best they'll probably arrive to either find the shooter subdued, or the armed citizen among those lying on the ground.
