    People always say 'if only somebody had a gun to shoot the bad guy.'   It doesn't work.

    A lone gunman started shooting in the café near McChord Air Force base in Tacoma, south of Seattle, at about 8.15 am (16.15pm GMT) local time on Sunday.

    "We have somebody out there who blatantly went in and opened fire on four police officers, killing all four of them," Pierce County Sheriff's Office spokesman Ed Troyer said.

    The victims were all wearing uniform, including bulletproof vests, at the time of the attack.

    If police officers cannot defend themselves against a sudden attack, why do you think that Joe Citizen could take out the mall shooter, or an elementary school teacher could defend his or her classroom?
