Though the alleged gunman at the theater shooting last Friday was armed to the teeth, able to fire off 60 rounds in a minute, and dressed fully in bulletproof gear, former Arizona State Senator Russell Pearce thinks one of the people in the theater should have been able to take him down.
In a Facebook post that has since been deleted, Pearce criticized the people in the theater for a lack of courage and for not being armed, saying that if they had been, they could have saved lives. “All that was needed is one Courages/Brave [sic] man prepared mentally or otherwise to stop this it could have been done,”

It seems I agree with the senator.
It is sad it seems the order of the day for all in the theatre was to throw the baby and drive home and wait for the wife's call...
One dedicated soldier is all it would have took.
Many of his victims were 'completely paralysed' and stood 'totally still' as he fired the shots that ended their lives.
'This is something they never show on TV,' he added. 'It was very strange.'
