15. The other shooters don't have the original shooters motives.
Sure they might after the shooting begins. But I highly doubt it.

I ride solo through forests on a bicycle. I've encountered bears, and the largest mountain lion I've ever seen. Screw it. Bad example.


The original shooter was ready to kill. Even those defending themselves don't have the same level of intent. "Is there a hell? Will I be the next to be shot?" I think it's a valid argument. And I don't believe the John Wayne films reflected any kind of reality. Only exaggerated stories of something similar to what we're discussing here. And outlaw in his last throes.

I don't think there's a single argument that can validate it's stance on arming people. It goes against every sentiment of being human, and every religion, and common sense.

Well, speaking of riding. It's time to go to the redwoods! I'm off!
