I wonder if the NRA--or Trump--will issue any praise for Riley Howell.

This UNC Charlotte student knocked the shooter off his feet and saved lives - CNN
When a gunman opened fire in a University of North Carolina at Charlotte classroom, sending people diving for cover and rushing toward a door, student Riley Howell charged and knocked into the shooter, police say.

Howell died for his efforts, shot by the gunman he rushed. But he was the "first and foremost hero" in bringing Tuesday evening's shooting to an end, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Chief Kerr Putney said.
"He took the fight to the assailant," Putney said Wednesday. "Unfortunately, he had to give his life to do so, but he saved lives doing so."

If he woulda had a gun, maybe he could have taken the shooter out and still be alive to tell the tale.

Know what I mean, Vern?

"Howell died for his efforts"

So your plan is hoping that unarmed people will be brave enough to rush a maniac with a gun?

And if you really want to be technical about it, the saying, "The only thing that stops a bad buy with a gun is a good guy with a gun," has been scientifically disproven. The bad guy with a gun was, indeed, stopped without a "good guy gun."

Did you even read the article you posted?

"An officer ran into the classroom, disarmed the suspect and arrested him, police said."
