    That's you! You are saying that no one should ever do what he did. There is the problem.

    I am. If you are licensed to carry you better be the best person to handle your weapon.

    You are saying the licensed to carry people should give up their gun to their policeman savior. If they are carrying they should. Almost certainly do, know their weapon and have the skills.

    They certainly can’t do any worse than a cop with an unfamiliar weapon. A cop who is trained in one way of engaging the target. A cop who may not be all that good in the first place.

    He might be awesome. He might be an idiot. If you want to surrender your fate to an unknown quantity that is your choice. Me? I’m suggesting that you and anyone else is far better off with your fate in your hands.
