I would rather risk the bullet (coming from someone who lives in DFW) than risk the government when the bullets are only able to come from one side.

Just sounds like a minor complication for police compared to the added safety that citizens with guns provide. Sure, it can happen that police mistake who the real shooter is when people who are carrying are also there. But I think that issue is a minor one compared to when no one has a gun except the shooter and waiting for the police to act is the only option.

When Whitman climbed the tower, half of Austin showed up with hunting rifles. Pinned him down. One guy even went up in a plane to shoot down at him. Gave the cops cover to get up on him.

So, what is it that I'm missing, why didn't these open carry people attack the shooter?
