2nd Amendment - "Gunslinger Math", the 21 millisecond advantage

article sources:
'Popular Mechanics', June 2010, p.17 "Gunslinger Math"

Gunfight_at_the_OK_Corral_2Picture the classic shoot-out in a Western movie: The good guy and the bad guy face each other, their hands quivering over their gun holsters. The bad guy reaches for his weapon, causing the good guy to react–he whips out his pistol and BAM! The hero triumphs. Physicist Niels Bohr once had a theory on why the good guy always won shoot-outs in Hollywood westerns. It was simple: the bad guy always drew first. That left the good guy to react unthinkingly – and therefore faster. When Bohr tested his hypothesis with toy pistols and colleagues who drew first, he always won [New Scientist].

But new research suggests that Bohr didn't have it exactly right. In a study published in Proceedings of the Royal Society B, scientists suggest that people do move faster when they are reacting to what is happening around them–but not fast enough for a heroic gunslinger to save his own life.

Researchers set up an experimental (and bullet-less) duel to study two types of movement, and found that "unplanned actions" were faster than "planned actions." Pairs of participants were put in a button-pressing competition with each other…. "There was no 'go' signal," said Dr Andrew Welchman from the University of Birmingham, who led the research. "All they had to go by was either their own intention to move or a reaction to their opponent – just like in the gunslingers legend" [BBC]. Welchman found that the subjects who started the sequence of button-pressing first didn't move as quickly as their partners who were reacting to the action. Those reactive participants pressed their buttons 21 milliseconds faster.

Welchman observed: "If you're making a cup of tea that would be an intentional decision. If we then knock the cup of tea off the table, the reactive comes into play as we try to catch the cup as fast as possible" [BBC].

But the button-pressing duel also revealed that the reactive party was critically delayed. A "reaction time" of 200 milliseconds elapsed between the moment the first player hit a button and when the second player began to move, which meant that the reactive player never won the duel. Welchman notes that the same reaction time would slow down a cowboy, so in a gunfight, the 21 millisecond reactionary advantage would be unlikely to save you [BBC].

The researchers plan to investigate whether there are two different brain processes for "planned actions" and "reactive actions." They hope future findings will help patients suffering from Parkinson's disease, who have greater trouble with intentional movements like picking up a ball on the table, as opposed to catching it when thrown at them. This might be evidence that particular areas of the brain affected by Parkinson's contribute more to intentional actions than reactive ones. If this turns out to be the case, then it may also be possible to develop some strategies to ease movement in such patients [University of Birmingham].

Remember Them, Honor Them - "Sacrifice is Meaningless Without Remembrance" by Agnes Cross-White and a cartoon by Jeff Parker at 'Florida Today'

"Sacrifice is Meaningless Without Remembrance" By Agnes Cross-White, May 26th, 2010


Millions of Americans will climb in their cars this coming weekend and head off to the beach, to a ball game or to visit family and friends. There will be lots of hot dogs and hamburger smoking on the grill and let's not forget all the beer that will be consumed.

So many of us have forgotten what Memorial Day really means. The Civil War was this nations' bloodiest war,
Memorial Day Cartoon by Jeff Parker - Florida Today one that, the lives of more than 600, 000 men were lost.   The nation was reeling from the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. It was 1866. Those that survived came home, some with missing limbs and others traumatized, not only physically but mentally.

Henry Welles, a drugstore owner in Waterloo, New York, saw the returning soldiers and heard their stories. He asked his fellow towns people to close their stores for one day in honor of the soldiers who had been killed in the Civil War and were buried in Waterloo.

In 1868, the 30th of May, was designated for the purpose of honoring those who died in defense of their country.  More than a million of us have died in all the wars our nation has fought from Lexington and Concord to Fallujah.

In the wee hours of the morning before Memorial Day, soldiers of the Third U.S. infantry walk along the rows of headstones at Arlington National Cemetery, select one flag from their bundle and push it into the ground, and stand erect and salute.

"That from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion."

Lincoln's Gettysburg address is just as relevant today as it was when he delivered it on the blood soaked battlefield at Gettysburg. Young men and women are still dying and those that return are sometimes damaged.

This nation takes for granted the freedoms that we enjoy; and the rights given to us by God and embodied in our Constitution. They are not free. They have been paid for by the lives of young men and women whose lives had barely begun before they ended.

Memorial Day is not about ballgames, or hot dogs or sales at the mall. It is about individuals, one million plus men and women "who gave of their tomorrows, for your todays."

Before you go to that sale, kiss your sleeping child or eat that last piece of meringue pie, remember those who made it possible from Lexington to Fallujah and say a prayer of thanks and remember.

"We cherish too, the Poppy red that grows on fields where valor led; it seems to signal to the skies that blood of heroes never dies." -- Flanders Field

Newspaper publisher White has published one book, Charlottesville: the African-American community and has a new book about to be published, Possum got big ears, which are short stories about a black child growing up in the 50s and 60s in urban America. They are stories of survival, faith and determination.


White is divorced and the mother of three children, Sherman, Jr., a computer analyst, David, president of Exit 10 Advertising Agency in Baltimore, Maryland and Dana, a foreign policy analyst with the Senate Armed Services Committee. She has one grandchild.

"Over the last four years our national debt has risen nearly $6 trillion, and just last week the debt topped an astounding $16 trillion.  To put that in perspective, $16 trillion is enough money to fund the US military, along with the military of every NATO country combined… for the next sixteen years!  Government spending is projected to hit $3.8 trillion this year alone.  Even after every tax dollar paid by Americans has been counted, the government will still overspend by another $1.13 trillion.  Every single second of the day our government spends over $12,000.  So in the time it takes you to read this article, roughly five minutes, our government has spent $3.6 million.  It take four seconds for the government to spend what the average American earns in an entire year."  (source: by Tim Phillips 17Sep12 at TownHall.com)
