13. Oh really?
Doesn't work in practice

As in "never"? So these accounts are all fictional?

There was in interview with a guy right after Congresswoman Giffords was shot who was armed and ran out of the store right after the actual shooter was disarmed. He nearly shot the guy who disarmed the actual shooter because he still had the gun in his hand. Having a gun does not really make it any more likely you will stop a serious incident. It is just as likely you will make an incident worse.

Go and look up the incident. He never drew his gun. He figured out quickly enough what was going on. How could he have "nearly shot the guy" without drawing his gun? How did he "make an incident worse"?
