I have the mindset that problems need to be handled, not passed along to someone else. I don't want to deter criminals from robbing me, I want to stop them. Kicking the can down the road doesn't get rid of the can.

Similarly, if I'm involved in an active shooting scenario, the problem isn't that bullets are flying at me. If that were the root of the problem, running away might solve the problem. The root problem is whackos shooting at people, and it needs to stop.

As I've said, police aren't first responders, they are last responders. We're first responders.
