22. statistically, a cop is more likely to fire
because he or she is often trained to have their guns drawn, reducing reaction time. I grew up in a family of cops and gun buffs. Most were both.

If anyone has the misfortune to be in the tackler's situation, do not pick up the gun. That can get you mistaken for the bad guy. Kick it out of the reach of the shooter and put your foot on it until the cops secure it.
