    Imagine if the gun nut fantasy had played out. The assassin opens fire and then a bunch of other people packing heat start shooting up the place in "self-defense."

    After all, that was the stated reason why there oughtta be such free-carry laws anyway--stops criminals blah blah blah protect people around you blah blah blah.

    And yet in a locality where everyone in sight probably had a gun in their pocket, this dude managed to get off thirty shots without anyone anywhere returning a single shot in response.

    So what good did all the carried guns do?
