The good guy had a gun ... but the Ammosexuals always argue he would just shoot the bad guy and everything would be ok...

seems like it just causes chaos (of course). Maybe the "rule" just doesn't apply to people of colour?


Also, records proving he had a legal authority to carry the gun would be available, I do not like the "according to his family" comment. The journalist needs to dig deeper right?

And the shopping mall prohibits guns right? So why do open and even concealed carry permit holders think this does not apply to them?

He was likely trying to be the good guy who stops the bad guy, I get that. At what cost though?
Here I thought there was nothing lower than a snakes belly in a rut in a ditch. I was wrong.

I would guess they posted a sign strictly for insurance and liability, so they could one day say in court "We have a policy and a sign that prohibits guns in the mall, thus we are not liable."

But put this scenario in a school where they want teachers to carry firearms and go looking up and down the hallways for the shooter. More people could be shoot by "good samaritans" and police then by the shooter.
Just because it is a Bad idea doesn't mean it won't be a Good time.

No one is dying from an assault rifle in the USA. They were banned 30 years ago.

A gun. I own 5 of them. Never shot anyone with any of them and never will.

great job, I never said all gun owners would... you probably did the CORE course and have your PAL, as did I. If they are handguns you have your restricted firearms permit, which has decent background checks and strong controls around using said fire arms at ranges. we have good controls in Canada. The US would benefit from some small changes. No need to jump to "don't take my gunnnnsss away!!".
