Ah, but you don't get how terrorists think. They are not there to survive, they are there to make a statement. The more people shoot at each other - the better it is in their book. If your red neck farmers grab their guns and start shooting at people, that's exactly what they want. Hey, that will cause more deaths than the attacker himself (or herself) can possibly kill. See, in such situations people get confused: is that dark guy there a terrorist? He's waving with a gun - let's kill him before he kills me! Gotcha!
Oh, heck, it was an old man with a walking stick. Must have my eyes checked later on..

Did he call out to other men to help him charge the attacker? No....HE WENT AND HID BEHIND A GARBAGE BIN!!!!!!!
Politicians may be a corrupt and vile lot but they are not stupid. They know that a gun ban is pointless and would be like pissing in the wind with 300 million guns floating about the USA. Gun control would be a pipe dream! No they just bring up gun control as a distraction as they know it gets the ignorant masses all riled up and focused on that, meanwhile they get up to no good while the public attention is on that.
Maybe if the American people had spent just as much effort on there other rights as they do there guns and spoke up as loudly there would have been no patriot act
