This Is The Right Idea

Dave Shiflet at NRO has the right spirit - we have this Maryland Sniper outnumbered. Look, the idea of hijacking planes as missles was rendered obsolete after about one hour, and it wasn't because of reinforced doors, or armed pilots, or improved airline security. It was because ordinary people stepped up to the challenge.

Similarly, I expect that the sniper is having a much harder time operating in the DC area now. Every person out there could be armed with a cell-phone, and therefore dangerous. We will see how many people feel hunted, and how many feel like hunters.
