    The Yankee Marshal gives commentary on gun issues and since he lives in the state where the two men were stabbed to death...he points out that had someone on the train been allowed to carry a gun......those lives might have been saved....

    It's possible....

    If you're a minority, LBGT or a civilized person you should carry.

    Possibly yes to the OP.

    Who has some good studies on ccw's who have saved the day or gotten shot themselves, like they did at NO and Miami?

    Shout "DUCK", and then point it right at his face and you probably won't have to shoot. Guns trump knives.
    People get all, "Don't shoot man, I didn't mean nuthin." when there is a gun to their head.

    That's a good "what-if".
    Thank you.

    Assuming the gun would have to be fired, is contrary to crime prevention stats.
