    Research what 5 gallons of diesel and a bag of ammonium sulfate (fertilizer) can do. Very easy to use and easily causes as much damage as today's tragedy.
    Hence, the book I was writing. Way too easy.

    IMO, there should be some sort of background check that includes the "candidate's" (mental) health records and that should then be piggybacked with a licensed mental health professional's interview and evaluation and/or references that include prior bosses and/or teachers.

    not true. there's a difference between having a checkered past and being alarmingly unstable.

    Here in Utah, where "everyone" packs, we had a shooting just a few years ago up at Trolley Square. I don't recall any ordinary citizen blowing away the shooter. Perhaps all the packers ran away to save their own skins? Maybe they all missed? The shooter was eventually taken down by professionals. So if packing actually makes you "safer" why hasn't any "packer" stopped/minimized (any) of these shootings?
    Here's at least one example of concealed carry stopping a shooter/saving lives:

    Kenneth K. Hammond, who was at the mall for an early Valentine’s Day dinner with his wife, said he first thought the sound of gunfire was construction noise but drew his gun and told his wife to call 911 when he realized what was happening.
    “I’ve been in situations before where I’ve had to chase a guy who was pointing a gun at me,” Hammond, 33, said Tuesday from the Ogden police headquarters where he works.
    Hammond, who fired on Talovic, is being credited with drawing the gunman’s attention until other officers could reach the scene. Talovic was killed, although it was unclear which officer fired the fatal shot, police said.
    “I feel like I was there and did what I had to do,” Hammond said.
    Oh wait...that example was the Trolley Square shooting. Huh.

    Dude works at the police station. I doubt he's a secretary. Not exactly just some Joe Schmoe off the streets.

    He was an off-duty officer. Trained, I'm sure. But concealed carry, or "packer", nonetheless.

    Again, not a very strong example.

    Exactly.

    You'd think with the amount of opportunity right now packers would be out there saving lives. Perhaps this is just a myth? I'm still not seeing any evidence to support the NRA's claim.
