    There was no "good guy with a gun" to stop the evil one, but against this:

    [​IMG]

    was a U.S. Marine Corps veteran that took action to save lives:

    Marine Veteran Stole Truck to Transport Dozens of Vegas Victims to Hospital

    He stole a truck to transport the injured away from the melee. TRAVIS WINSTON, a hero without a gun.

    But the OP brings up a good debate.
    Should we allow rifles and snipers carried around in public? Obviously they wont be concealed, but someone could have stopped this early on..
    :D

    They could do it in the cowboy movies. Shoot a revolver 29 times and never reload and never miss!

    The "good guy with a gun" mantra fails. So do oppressive firearm laws; the killer had the makings of a bomb, and as with McVeigh, the desire to kill as many humans as possible.
