Cop in Miami Beach got seriously stabbed this weekend. Still is in critical condition at the hospital. Perpetrator looks to be a homeless man who knifed the cop and was killed in a volley of gunfire... 20 shots or more. They first tried a taser, when that didn't stop him, the gun fire did.

I love all these gun control weenies that think evil people (other than us gun owners) don’t exist...and that they won’t find some way to do harm...

Some people are just evil, bad, lawless aholes...

If a determined man with a knife is within 20 or less feet of someone He can get to them and stab them before they can draw a weapon and shoot, that is a fact taught in some training.

A determined nutcase with a knife could do more damage in a crowded place than someone with a firearm if you think about it. A knife is silent, and someone could knife a dozen people before the crowd at large realizes what is going on. A firearm on the other hand will be heard and in this day and age, loud pops in a mall or crowed place will send people scattering and hiding.

Officers spread out to search and received reports that the suspect had stabbed several more people about a mile and a half away from the earlier stabbing, police said.

There, police found the suspect, who was being detained by some of his victims, police said. He was then taken into custody.
Again, not ragging on LE, but just a simple fact of life. It was the victims fighting back and taking responsibility for their own survival that stopped the guy.

A gun is merely a tool! How it's used is up to the person using it! A hammer, baseball bat, fork, even a vehicle can be a murder weapon in the wrong hands!

How come the media hasn't called this a "Mass Stabbing?"

If he used a gun it would be a "Mass shooting?"

I believe that you misunderstood what they were teaching or they taught it wrong in training.

Agreed .... also how come they don't refer to him as an knifer .... it sounds scary.

We should have active knifer training available to everyone.

I believe that you should go to YouTube and search 21 foot rule and watch the videos.

Thank you but I really don't need to, I understand it fine, it is not as stated in the post.
I can draw my firearm and get reasonable accurate rounds off in under 1.5 seconds.

Is that a duty holster? Concealed? It's easy to shoot 100% at paper...paper isn't shooting back! 1.5 seconds is fast. Like cowboy fast shooting sports fast. Not saying you can't but the average person can't. And within 20 ft I can throw a knife pretty hard and accurate. Some departments have the 21 ft rule and training some don't!
