Article.

Glock 19 with 33-round magazine. Another handgun ban success story.

And clearly she would have done better with an actual gun.

I don't know if our unarmed police are given any training on how to deal with an armed criminal, beyond calling for armed support. It strikes me that trying to use a taser against an armed criminal is fairly useless, and the best course of action, in extremis, would be to get in as close as possible with the baton and use that on him. From press reports it seems that the officers' stab vests did in fact stop the initial bullets fired at them, which might have given them a chance. However, they were in the mental mode of turning up to compile the routine paperwork following a burglary, and it is perhaps expecting too much to think that they could have survived an attack like this.
