    And for those who are going to jump to conclusions, and accuse me of justifying what this guy did, I have one response:

    It's wrong to use any means, violent or not, to kill people
    so if a policeman or armed civilian had been able to shoot this scum bag early in his attack that would have been wrong?

    This guy could have had a brilliant career as a political strategist for the Tea Party or a FOXNews videographer. Check out his work.

    I seem to recall the Knights Templar were an honorable bunch. There is no honor in what this whacko did. How obscene to invoke them.

    I thought much the same thing. It would have been great in this instance if somebody had a gun and took out this jerk really early on. I don't think any rational person would prefer scores of innocent people dead rather than this one right wing extremist.

    But lets then think through the implications of that for a moment. Yesterday in Texas somebody killed five innocent people at a roller skating rink because of a family dispute. Its getting very little media play as its just another mass gun killing and we all know where those stories end up anyways.

    Do we want to live in society where the alternative to this sort of thing is everybody walks around armed to the teeth?

    I am sure some here will answer loudly and proudly HELL YES. Is there not some other alternative? But think about it......... and then respond.

    I think sangha is wrong 99% of the time but once again, you have to take the entire context of the complete discussion in and not just one post. His was a rare valid reply.

    Nope, just the responsible people who know how to properly use weapons.

    Which has nothing to do with what was being discussed. He was saying that his arguement was not an excuse for what this guy did.
