“OK. Put them in a darkened movie theater filled with tear gas, and have them shoot at targets 20 yards away. “
...with a frantic crowd screaming all around and ask the target to hold still, and not shoot at you while you take this shot.....
Body armour doesn't stop the impact of the shots, which can and will slow down and disorient the shooter, if not disable him. Once he is hit, he can be hit again. If the gas is to thick, he can be hunted by those who are carrying.
YOU FIGHT BACK.
SEVENTY ONE PEOPLE WERE SHOT.
But that's preferable to fighting back?
Screw you. May God piss on the dirt you stand on, you miserable, crawling cowards.
If ONE PERSON remained unshot because people could shoot back, it would be worth it.
If the whole theater DIED while being armed, and all 400 people were shooting and fighting for their lives when they died, it would be preferable to being shot down like dogs by a maniac.
DAMN you sh*t-pantsed cowards!
I’m not sure it was teargas - some have heard it was just smoke. (Just like the utility vest is being called armor). And one witness said he was just standing there, methodically shooting with no emotion.
All this talk about shoot or not shoot - seems to me that if you aren’t going to TRY to shoot in a situation like this, you might as well just leave your gun in the vault. Although I got to say - I couldn’t make a head shot at 20 yards, even on a guy standing still. Well - at least not with my pistol.
