In today's local paper there was a story about the court proceedings involving James Holmes and the Aurora theater massacre. One bit of information that I may have heard before, but didn't register, is that the whole of the massacre took all of 27 seconds. I wonder what good it would have done to have had an armed officer in the place. Think about how long it would take for someone to react, to reach for a gun, undo the holster snap, bring up the gun, locate the shooter, and then aim the gun. The margin is 27 seconds.
