Glenn Reynolds writes that "victimhood isn't the only response" when you're threatened. Three Americans and a Brit take out a would-be terrorist on a French train:

The three were riding on a train from Amsterdam to Paris when a gunman -- an Islamist from Morocco who had visited Syria and was flagged as a possible jihadist -- started shooting. One of the Americans, Airman 1st Class Spencer Stone, 23, sprinted at the gunman and tackled him. The others, Oregon National Guardsman Alek Skarlatos, 22, and Sacramento State University student Anthony Sadler, 23, joined in.

As Skarlatos recounted in a Sky News interview from his hotel in Arras, northern France: "I just looked over at Spencer and said, 'Let's go!' Spencer got to the guy first, grabbed the guy by the neck, and I grabbed the handgun, got the handgun away from the guy and threw it. Then I grabbed the AK (assault rifle), which was at his feet, and started muzzle thumping him in the head with it."

Arm yourself. Be a wolf.

Fear is contagious. But so is courage. People should respond not like a herd of sheep but like a pack of wolves.
