    How subjective of you

        I agree, every non-criminal over the age of 16 gets a weapon. Subsidized by the govt for those who cannot afford. This is the only way to be safe.

          Well we don't want to claim historical accuracy in the Western movies but in them most town folk were unarmed.

              Could be, what other method would we be able to arm everyone over the age of 16 that can't afford a gun? I mean, 2A advocates should be barking from the hills for every person to be armed.

                  Taking away people's guns is condemning thousands of people to death .

                    I think a more pertinent question would be: How many gun laws are there already in the books....and why haven't any of those prevented any of the mass shootings? Why would more laws be any more effective than those passed previously?

                      Well first, what did the unarmed citizens do? Nothing. So there goes your argument right there. You're also applying hindsight, knowing that the guy didn't fire a round. But, I personally would like to see how you would detain someone who's in full tactical gear while you're unarmed. All in the heat of the moment without the hindsight of knowing what his intentions were. It's easy to talk the talk on the internet, but that doesn't hold any value to me.

                      Secondly, the fact that this firefighter was even armed, is worthy of praise in itself. For as many guns as we have in this country, we really need more good guys with ccps. I used to watch a youtube channel where the host would perform random edc checks on his subscribers when he ran into them in person. What they had and didn't have on them was important and what happened here is exactly why. In my view, it is irresponsible to go out of the house without proper protection. Prepare for the worst and hope for the best and why not look out for others if you're capable of doing so. It took 3 minutes for officers to respond to that situation. You realize how many people can die within that time...

                      And your second question was just asinine, sorry. There is nothing in my post that can be remotely interpenetrated as a sign of support for mentally ill people doing something that's obviously wrong.

                        No gun laws are going to change a culture that's predicated on hatred and violence. Time we stop ignoring the core issue and get to the root of the problem here.

                          Thinking like that isn't mentally healthy. Lay off RW media and conspiracy theories. No wonder there's mentally ill people 'snapping.'

                              Unarmed citizens did nothing (there was no threat). A responsible gun owner confronted the irresponsible gun owner. The problem in America is there's a lot of irresponsible gun owners. Don't lock weapons up, leave them laying around, selling to friends(strangers) to pay the rent, etc.

                                Someone walking into a store in full tactical gear is a threat. There's a reason they cleared the store out.
