In a shocking example of 911 failure, a Salt Lake City woman and her sister fought for their lives against a knife-wielding maniac and the 911 police dispatcher FAILED to send them help because they did not answer all of the required questions. 

During our Brownells Bullet Points segment, Professor Paul discusses a recent experience from the rifle range. Can factory new ammunition fail? What is more important, cost or quality control?

Also, for this week’s SOTG Homeroom from Crossbreed Holsters, we consider what happens when the state forbids the peasants from being dangerous on demand. Do kidnappers and killers respect the disarmed citizen or do they view them like sheep to be slaughtered?
