So, Cotton blames pasture because he voted to not want guns in churches on a piece of legislation. Not surprising at all.
A gunman attacked worshippers at a Colorado Springs, Colorado, megachurch Sunday afternoon, killing one person and wounding four others before being killed by a security staff member , the city's police chief said.

Yeah, now's the time for mourning and healing, BUT....“Now’s the time for mourning and for healing, but let’s be clear — at some point we as a country will have to reckon with the fact that this type of mass violence does not happen in other advanced countries,” Obama said.

We don't know what would have happened without this armed citizen. I doubt it would have been good. Perhaps we would have had Obama talking about another mass shooting and the need for more gun control.Authorities say no charges will be filed against an Uber driver who shot and wounded a gunman who opened fire on a crowd of people in Logan Square over the weekend.
The driver had a concealed-carry permit and acted in the defense of himself and others, Assistant State's Attorney Barry Quinn said in court Sunday.
A group of people had been walking in front of the driver around 11:50 p.m. Friday in the 2900 block of North Milwaukee Avenue when Everardo Custodio, 22, began firing into the crowd, Quinn said.
The driver pulled out a handgun and fired six shots at Custodio, hitting him several times, according to court records. Responding officers found Custodio lying on the ground, bleeding, Quinn said. No other injuries were reported.

My point is that some people confuse movies with reality. You just don't know how quick you can react with a flood of adrenaline. Just recently there was the reserve cop who grabbed his pistol instead of his taser with his flood of adrenaline. Walter Mitty may think he could become Rambo or one may freeze at such a shock of events.
Have always wondered in such situations such as the shooting at Virginia Tech when it is apparent you are probably going to get killed why someone didn't try to jump him and others join in. That would most likely reduce the number killed. But that is easy for me to say because I wasn't there, hell I might have just peed my pants.
The NRA spokesman should have kept his thought to himself at this time.
As for the FAFB story , that was truly amazing the young airman was able to stop him at 70 yards with a pistol. Actually that is beyond amazing.
