The people in this case had no chance at all. They could have had guns on their person, but it would not have prevented them being shot. The killer walked to the door of the cafe, after being asked to leave, turned around and in a split second , shot four persons. In a split second. Having a gun on them would not have stopped him. Yes, another person armed might have been able to kill him, after he killed several people. Wearing a gun will not give you a guarantee of safety. If you carry a gun and think it makes you safe, you are wrong. There are some situations where it might make a difference, but it isn't a blanket guarantee. IN this case, it would have made little difference.
It didn't make a whit of difference for the four armed police officers who were shot to death in a cafe a few years ago.
The woman killed in downtown Seattle was car jacked. She had no chance to go for a pistol, not when the man had a gun to her head in miliseconds.
This man was mentally ill. He had on his record gun violations already, which had been dismissed. That's "liberal" thinking gone wrong , in my opinon. The ease with which people, **** near anyone, can get guns is what's wrong.
And, though I dont' carry, my family owns two or three guns. So, I am not "gunless".
