What happened to good guys with guns?

I thought the rationale for arming every sentient being in the country was to insure that the good guys would be able to stop the bad guys with guns.
When’s the last time a civilian stopped a tragedy, instead of caused it? As usual, it is the police that move in to stop the carnage.

1. They were probably

at weekend training exercises with their well-regulated militias. That's why they have guns ya know.

2. Any good guy with a gun will probably be mistaken for the killer.

And be shot.

3. PFC Glendon Oakley had one

When he saw the kids who needed rescuing, he put his piece back in the holster and saved a bunch of lives.

This guy damn well better get the Soldier's Medal for what he did.

4. If you think you need an assault rifle to protect yourself you are in much more trouble than

you realize. Leave it to those who are trained. No case of a civilian armed with a military style weapon who has stopped a tragedy from unfolding. Shoot outs are for the movies.

6. There aren't any.

Today's shooting happened at a Walmart in El Paso, in one of the reddest districts in the reddest state in the country. You would think that there would be plenty of rootin' tootin' 2A tough guys who shoot first and ask questions later would have 2A'd the shooter before he was able to pull the trigger, but guess they weren't.

The truly hardcore 2A people talk a lot of shit, but deep down, they're cowards.

7. Yup.

Note the white mass murderer is treated respectfully too. Now, if he was an unarmed black guy at a traffic stop he might have been shot.
