    Two more multiple shootings

    So the news today contains heartwrenching details of two multiple shooting incidents-one in Philadelphia and the other in Salt Lake City. The Philadelphia incident sounds like the work of a disgruntled investor. The Salt Lake City mall shooting, on the other hand, is a nightmare scenario-complete with a mall full of shoppers and a determined, shotgun wielding assailant who randomly shoots targets at will.

    The mall shooter was able to take many lives before law enforcement personnel could stop him. Don't know many details, but it sounds as though response time was pretty good. Still, I couldn't help wonder if a savvy armed citizen "on site" might have been able to stop the carnage sooner.

    The story also gives pause. The prospect of facing a shotgunner-even as a legally armed civilian- sans ballistic protection and/or supporting shooters, sounds rather daunting to me.
