gun right advocates

If gun individuals have the RIGHT to keep and bear arms as it says in the Constitution then this can and should be the results. You'll notice that the killing spree stopped once Jeanne Assam dropped the gunman in his tracks.

Given the apathy of many and knowing that very few people have read or even understand the Constitution the results will more than likely end up in this manner. You'll notice that police nor any well intended citizen stopped this from continuing, the gunman himself ended it mercifully.

Many will attribute this to having too many guns in society, however very few people that are actually gun toting 2nd Amendment types will go into a mall and shot the place up. I would much rather have NO security then to have my government disarm innocent people.

"when seconds are critical the police are always minutes away"

I would like to point out that our police agencies aren't designed to stop this type of action, only to mop up after the event happened. A well armed citizenry is the ONLY means to bring these types of events to a stop, well that and government agencies getting out of the way.

That's the crux of this whole issue. The extreme anti-gun crowd doesn't want to admit the people doing virtually all of the gun related crimes are not the people who belong to the NRA. They're not the ones who have been responsible with their firearms. It's people with mental issues (for the most part) and gun control won't stop them.

The anti-gun crowd wants to remove all gun related weapons from all individuals, however the lawful will disarm while the lawless prey upon us all.
Once government dictates that all weapons must be turned in then that creates a scenario where the law obeying become the lawless and all HELL will break loose.

I don't believe that people sit down and think about what kind of society this would be in order for the police to be able to PREVENT these crimes from happening.

The only way to be johnny-on-the-spot is to have a good citizen that is armed.
