In the second, the whole article is not there, it's cut and pasted into someone's post comments. And from the way it reads, the unarmed basketball player was one of the ones chasing his daughter. (And he was not prosecuted, so....?)
And if people are using their guns in an argument, they are breaking the law...commiting a crime....again, that is not what I claimed. I claimed legitimate use of a firearm in public.
Nice try tho.
We do know of incidents where people were carrying and did not do so to prevent a crime because it was not safe to do so. The Gabby Giffords shooting is one prominent example. There were 2 people that said there were armed in that crowd but could not do anything because it was not safe to do so. So we do have restraint and discipline documented.
