Catawa is my favorite bleeding heart liberal.
I wonder if that's predominantly a male sentiment or if many women feel the same way.

Almost, by definition means it didn't happen. Claiming that a guy was there with a gun and thought about shooting = a real danger is a fallacy. That's like saying there was almost a car accident when two cars, driving on the correct side of the road, passed within feet of each other. That's how it is supposed to be. He did the right thing.
You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
I think this actually shows that gun owners are not irresponsible shoot-first think later type people.
Thanks for posting this, it reminds me why I support the 2nd amendment!
Not only does it temporary blind them it is so agonizing their hands are going to be rubbing their eyes.
Before anyone jumps to it I will admit is weak in a gun to gun battle but in many situations I belive it is superior.

Perhaps I'm a retard, but I don't see how this story proves anything against guns. It proves that gun owners don't just shoot first and ask questions later. A normal guy had a gun on the scene of a mass murder, and did not shoot any innocent people. The system of normal guys carrying weapons worked. He didn't mess up.
