""if not for a responsible armed citizen"" He did a Great Job....not like the police in Uvalde. Do you want to put your life in the hands of Govt. cowards that may just listen to you, as you cry out for help...and do nothing...? Protect yourself...Political scum wants you they can inflict major B.S. laws upon you..(worse than mask mandate), and you are helpless to rise up. There will always be POS that use firearms to kill...dont make it to where they are the only ones with guns. Dictators and useful Idiots fear an armed society..and listening to children scream will be the outcome if you rely on the Govt (city, state, etc) to protect you, and give away that ability to the gun grabbing dirtbags.
