When the kids are attacking officers who show up on the scene, it makes you wonder what good a single gun would have done. How long before the rest of the gang would have started to return fire? The numbers make this an unwinnable situation.
If the “yutes” had any “gats” they would have already pulled them out when the bystander showed his.
That’s because the kids know nothing will “really” happen to them. First one to take a .45acp thru the forehead, and the others will decide real quick that they don’t want to play that game. “One riot, one ranger”.
