    Thanks, anyway, but I'll pass. The, "do nothing", approach is obviously a failed strategy.

It's just as ridiculous and completely speculation based as the "gun laws would have stopped this" nonsense is. Most people have never been shot at and certainly not in this type of scenario. As far as I'm concerned, it's just as likely or more that the "heroes" would have been shot dead on the spot by the man in the bullet proof vest and the gas mask than they would have stopped him or slowed him down.

    Both sides of gun issue on this just want to believe that they have the answer. They don't.

    The answer the anti-gun side is giving us doesn't work, obviously.

    In some circumstances, it comes down to dying on your knees for sure or maybe on your feet.

    its to be expected from people who believe in outsourcing personal defense and safety to paid government agents

With all due respect, your post is an insult to decency.
    Then again, they might have just been praying that the shooter wasn't a Muslim.

    The problem with that approach is that many who may take it don't know how to use weapons. It is more likely there would be more victims at their hands because of their shoot-before-thinking attitude than there would be of the killer being taken down.

    Hey, dude if you want to get shot for no reason, go for it, but the majority of people who get out of these kinds of situations don't try to confront the armed guy with the bulletproof vest who has nothing to lose. Hey, maybe they'll even call you a "hero."

    And, by the way, I know you probably think you know exactly how you'd react in this situation, but you don't. Oftentimes, people don't have enough time to think about such noble topics as "will I let my fellow citizens die." It's fight or flight, that's it.

    I meant to say that it, "wasn't", the plan. My bad.
