What the hell else could they have done? I suppose someone in close proximity to the shooter could have tried to take him down. He wouldn't be expecting it since he was focused on the one guy he was chasing. But even if I had that chance, I don't think I would try wrestling a guy with a gun in each hand.It sounds like everyone started hiding under the table like a bunch of sheep.

Well, of course I'd like to think that I would try to take him down. As in any situation such as this, one never really knows how they would react until the time comes. As a fairly quick thinker, I would probably be able to rationalize that the guy would never see me in his periphery. In the same thought, I'm just thinking two guns would be tough to gain control of without getting shot by one of them. I guess I'd just have to smack him so damn hard that he'd lose consciousness and drop both of them. :nhl_checking:Somehow, utimmer, I don't believe you. Faced with the same situation, and given your non-sheeple mentality, I think that you would do JUST THAT!
Let's hear the BBC and other media sources put the spin on this shooting in a country with no guns....... [maybe] the guns came from the U.S., where the Mexicans get theirs.
We'll get the blame, for sure, courtesy of the BATFE.
In an article in the Edmonton Journal, England's gun-crime statistics for the first five years following the gun-ban indicate a very different outcome than that which was forecast. According to the article, "the incidence of gun crime in England and Wales nearly doubled from 13,874 in 1998 to 24,070 in 2003. And the incidence of firearms murder, while thankfully still very small, has risen 65 per cent."
Statistics from another report issued by Britain's Home Office reveal that there has also been a dramatic increase in robberies in recent years.
Do gun bans serve to reduce violent crime? When law-abiding citizens are disarmed, is their society a safer one? England's plight is just the latest example to show us, yet again, that the answer is "NO." (Link Removed)
OK, granted it wasn't a massacre, but...Mom kills son, then self at gun range - Crime & courts- msnbc.comGun free zones or countries are not safer. How many massacres have occurred at gun shows or shooting ranges? Name one. :sarcastic:
I wonder what they will want to outlaw next over there.... Maybe tables to hide under will be on that list.....
