We’d all like to prevent a gunman from wreaking havoc, some by making it more difficult to obtain weapons, period, some by arming themselves at all times.

What we need to remember is that acting effectively under the kind of extreme pressure a crisis buy furosemide 40 mg uk presents takes specialized training that doesn’t always even adequately prepare professionals for the shock.

The price of such unpreparedness could be your life…or the lives of other innocents. Are you really willing to take that chance?
