    This much is true: A gunman would definitely think twice if they knew there were a lot of people carrying inside.
    I'd say that he did, which is why he wore protective clothing in case he was shot at by police or anyone else.

    Still, I wouldn't ignore the lessons of history. Civil strife happens and people sometimes need act defensively when others act offensively. With the hate rhetoric getting worse and disasters causing temporary collapse of law and order (e.g. Katrina), it's not outside the realm of possibility. Having studied Con-Law, Political Theory and history in college, I think the conservatives win the gun debate on Constitutional and historic grounds. But feel free to propose an amendment.
