i don't think this is a "guns are good" situation, this is a "security guard with a gun" is good situation.

I suppose your assumption is that security personnel and even police officers have some superior training/ability that the average gun owner does not have?
So, sorry, but having a badge doesn't make you magically qualified for anything. Quite often it makes them pompous asses who show up for training sessions with a holier than thou attitude only to be made to look ridiculous by the middle-aged housewife who has never fired a gun before.

Statics show that those who are licensed to carry and actually do carry commit
fewer gun crimes. All CCW classes teach that the weapon is for self defense only and that you the holder is still liable civilly. Drawing a weapon should only be done in order save ones own life of the lives of his/her family. CCW holders don't go looking for gun fights, If your scenario could even be possible I believe the CCW holders would hopefully have a better understanding of the situation prior to getting involved if getting involved at all.
