I try again, based on your declaration that you are against legal concealed carry in bars ( @ 104 to Dawn).
This thread started with Gerardo Regalado, the Florida guy who shot 7 women, killing 4 of them, at a Hialeah restaurant. You asked about any legal concealed carry stopping such " shooting rampages."
This very example show the trick question to be a setup and it also shows where you are wrong about concealed carry in bars -- assuming that you really expect legal concealed carriers to stop such "shooting rampages."
According to El Yoyito Restaurant Y Cafeteria - Hialeah, FL
the Yoyito Restaurant in Hialeah sells beer & wine.
According to FL law Places Off-Limits Even With A Permit/License
any portion of an establishment licensed to dispense alcoholic beverages
for consumption on the premises
So, like nearly all mass shootings this one was in an "Unarmed Victim Zone."
So, there could not have been any legally carrying concealed carry permit holders there to have stopped this shooting rampage. Hence the trick question is shown as what it is.
Second this case is just another of the steady stream of such cases that shows why you are wrong about carry in restaurants that serve alcoholic beverages for consumption on the premises. The criminal who was intent on breaking the law was not stopped by a no gun sigh or law. OTOH, the law (which you favor) set up the very "Unarmed Victim Zone" which assured that the criminal had a safe place for his shooting rampage -- by disarming his intended targets and leaving them at his mercy.
