    The quick response of armed security kept him in one area, limiting the killing.  I'm sure you're not suggesting that had everyone else including security been unarmed the guy would have stopped shooting his shotgun at fleeing employees?

    I'm willing to bet the killed and wounded happened mostly before the first armed security arrived.  The number killed is due to the kind of weapon he used, shotguns do massive damage.  An AR15 bullet is smaller than your pinky fingernail.  A shotgun slug can be bigger than your thumb, or broken into 18 shot the size of an AR15 bullet which all hit in a beach ball size circle.  A shotgun does not hit just one time per shot, it hits several times, and does massive damage compared to a rifle or pistol. (Not that that is a walk in the park)

    Stupid question hour starts now and ends in five minutes.
