ATF not hopeful of finding out where the Pentagon shooter bought the weapons

WTOP radio today informed listeners that the Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms Agency were not hopeful of discovering where Patrick Bedell bought the weapons he used to shoot Police Officers near the Pentagon on Thursday evening.

Despite being a very disturbed individual, Bedell managed to walk up to Police without them becoming alarmed. One of the officers later said that he appeared as if he was approaching them to ask a question.

Fortunately, they were able to act quick enough, despite getting shot, to stop the crazed gunman. Ironically, this incident closely resembled a number of scenarios which SEXTON trainers engaged in with several dozen E.P. agents in Puerto Rico last week.

Students had to react to a number of real-life scenarios, such as a person walking up to them and perhaps pulling a weapon on them. Just as in the shooting on Thursday evening, some of them were able to respond in time, but those who did not, were shot by the bad guy and learned how fast an incident can turn tragic.

This is why we teach students to always be aware of their surroundings and expect the unexpected. When you are on duty protecting a Prinicpal, there can be no time for “zoning out” or daydreaming. You must be ready to react in an instant.
