October 16, 1991 is a day I remember well. I was attending college in Texas, not too far from Killeen. That day a lunatic named George Hennard drove his pick up truck in through the wall a Luby's Cafe, got out of his truck and began a shooting spree, killing as many people as he could. Up to that point, there was no other shooting incident where one man had killed so many people. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Hennard)
I remember thinking -- somehow wishing, as it were -- that I could have been there with a gun to stop that mad man.
This is a must-see video.
