I'm starting to think you guys really want more of this so you can be that old man for a day. It's like a little fantasy, where you can save all those people if only *you* were there, in the right place, at the right time.

It's the only way to reconcile your complete disregard for how these events play usually out in the real world, and real world data on gun laws, incidences, etc. Boring old facts and data suggest you'd run, get shot first, or become confused and shoot the wrong person.

But no, like fantasizing about winning a lotto ticket, you'll trade everyone else's safety for outlying anecdotes and a shot at glory.
