  •  And even if he was carrying he would have just (0+ / 0-)

    been assassinated once he stepped outside the church via sniper rifle (which is basically the same as a hunting rifle with a good scope).  Or even caught by surprise inside the church.

      •  That's what I said, there is basically no (0+ / 0-)

        difference between a sniper rifle and a hunting rifle with a high end scope.  The point is that Tiller would probably be just as dead even if he had been carrying.  Do you have any idea how hard it is to stop someone who is determined to kill you and is more than willing to die in the process?  Remember, it is not uncommon for a criminal to return fire and hit a police officer even after being fatally shot in a shootout.

        •  well, Dr. Tiller avoided it while he was carrying (0+ / 0-)

          a gun and was murdered when he didn't. He obviously thought it improved the odds.

          All this is hypothetical, no one wants to kill me, and I don't need to carry a gun. I wouldn't make that decision for others though.
