You are confused. If one or more of the victims had the means to defend themselves then they might not be dead now. That is a clear cut example of how more guns would have helped. The fact they were prevented from defending themselves by the filthy government prevented them from having the opportunity. The law abiding victims that died today obeyed the stupid law. The terrorist didn't. Shame on the government for not allowing the people to defend themselves if they chose to do so. Same on Liberals for electing Left leaning assholes that are hell bent on taking away the ability of the people to defend themselves. If anybody should be allowed to carry concealed or other wise available weapons it should the military, shouldn't it? Trained mature disciplined troops. Especially on a base with Muslims.
