They sure would have turned out different.
After the first shot, everyone would have drawn his weapon, unsure of who actually fired that first shot.
Someone else will then fire, then five others, then thirty more people will all be firing at anything they can see moving.
-This sounds like a movie script. The Police and Military encounter similar scenarios daily, armed citizen also encounter these types of encounters. This simply does not happen. You have been effectively brainwashed into gun fearing.-
Far more death, and crippling gunshot wounds than actually occurred.
Try shouting "fire" in a crowded theatre, and watch everyone slowly file out through the only fire exit in perfect order.
-People, who carry a gun, be they Police, Military or citizens have a great respect for their safety and the safety of others around them. Armed people do not behave like you describe. You are trying to perpetuate the gun fear mongering. Can you give any examples of such a scenario as you describe of ever having occurred. I doubt it. I can give a staggering amount of instances of the opposite actually happening.-
Guns save lives.
