    Absolutely. But of course, the media will spin one side about "gun violence" while totally ignoring the fact that bureaucratic red tape left him defenseless.

    And if I may point out, it did so because he was a law-abiding citizen who was merely obeying the rules.

    I'm not saying that he would have necessarily been armed at the moment, but he could have.

    We'll never hear that side of the story.

    If it saves one life, it's worth it - get rid of permits and gun registration, everyone gets to carry NOW!

    ouch
    Laws that forbid the carrying of arms . . . disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes . . . Such laws... serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man - Cesare Beccaria
