Designated Defenders?

I recently read an article by Massad Ayoob regarding last week’s bar shooting in Thousand Oaks. Reports on the shooting indicate that there may have been as many as six off-duty law enforcement officers (LEO) present at the time of the shooting. Apparently none of the officers were armed. The reason the officers were unarmed […]
