I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
The address of the coffee shop where they were killed is a Tacoma address:
Forza Coffee Company
11401 Steele Street South
Tacoma, Washington 98499
First of all Washington has concealed carry statutes on the books. The "slaves" can absolutely carry concealed weapons. All they have to do is be 21 and meet the requirements. And there is no guarantee that anyone would have been able to prevent this man from killing these officers or getting away. One of the problems with many CCW permit holders is that they don't actually carry their weapons with them all the time, they leave them in the car or at home because they can't get used to actually wearing them or adjusting their clothing options to facilitate concealed carry.You see the problem about the "legality and stealth of handguns" part. It wouldn't have been possible if the people(civilians....or is the right word slave?) had the same ability as cops to carry concealed guns on them. That way the bad people wouldn't have gotten away or have had the possibility to carry out such a crime.
I think every law abiding citizen who lives in a CCW state should at least consider getting the permit and carrying.
