I actually agree with this statement, in part. This is exactly the sort of thing we should be prepared for on a daily basis, and not only if we carry a gun.

This guy was minding his own business, in a place we've been told is super duper safe and we don't need to worry about being attacked, and he got attacked by a violent nutcase. He could have easily been after his wallet, or upset because the victim stole his parking spot, or just a general violent nutcase. He could have been a reader of any number of anti-gun message boards whose posters encourage violence against CCW holders and decided to go on his own personal crusade.

The victim certainly didn't do anything wrong, from my perspective, but maybe his situational awareness wasn't quite at the level it should have been.

I dunno, now it sounds like I'm second-guessing the victim, and that's not my intent. I'm just breaking down the event and trying to see how the rest of us could prevent it in the future, since this is the kind of violence being encouraged by some fringe anti-gunners.
