When they train cops to deal with knifes; the trainers say that a guy with a knife within 20 feet of a guy with a gun can kill the guy with the gun. If you think about it; most fit adults can run 20 feet in 3 to 5 seconds; some are even faster.


/ Granted, the mama Boo Boos of the world is probably come in around the 10-12 second mark.

Originally came in to make a joke about responsible knife ownership. Then I read your comment and was reminded of some police training my dad shared when I was a kid. Police (back in the day, at least) were trained to respect a knife at close range. They can be deadly when used by the right person, or by a lucky wrong person. Guns can be slightly less useful at those ranges and if it is your only tool, you're gonna have a bad day.

It's called the "Tueller Drill".

Basically, if someone is inside a certain radius, usually given as 21 feet, you can't unholster, present, and fire a handgun before that person, armed with a knife, could stab you.


What luck.  I have my hilarious Canadian Police knife training video.  NSFW language:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s-326WnWwWE

If I remember correctly, in Illinois, you may not carry a loaded gun in public, or something to that effect. the incident happened outside the club (a non-public place where, presumably, one could possess a loaded weapon). So it makes sense, from a legal standpoint, that the responsible gun-owner in that parking lot, faced with a knife-armed attacker, is at a clear disadvantage.

Also, what's up with three counts he was charged with? He killed one person...

Still waiting for that story about a man who gets stabbed with a spork at a knife club.

When it happens, it will happen in Illinois.

He didn't want to be the bad guy with a gun surrounded by good guys with guns.

If only they had something at that sort of club that would allow someone to defend themselves?
