Put your self in their position and imagine someone has come up to you and your friend and asked for a copy of the magazine you sell. As you hold out
the mag ready to exchange it for some money, he instead pulls out a knife and plunges it into your throat, turns to your friend and stabs them in the
chest, and as you both fall to the ground losing blood rapidly, continues to slash and stab your bodies. How would having a concealed weapon have
protected those two people?
Condolences to those who knew those 2 victims.
The Homeless would not be able to get guns, even if the law allows it or they can even afford it. If they had a good life living off welfare benefits,
they would not be out pushing rags at $2 a piece.
It is those whom are around who could have helped. It was a busy street in broad daylight. Why did no one bothered to stopped them? I suppose most do
not want to get involve, as the assaliant was armed while they were not.
Fortunately, the murderer stopped at 2 and not at others. If so, would others have tried to stop him? I doubt so, as brits are not armed.
In Texas, if such a situation happened on a busy street, rest assured at least a warning gunshot by a concerned texan civilian would have gone off to
halt such attacks. As the saying goes, when you need the police within seconds, they are often minutes away if not hours.
The homeless too, are only fellow humans, and would need more help to get off the streets, but not by being brutally slaughtered and uncared by
