A congressman who said that The Joker's rampage was an "attack on Judeo-Christian values"
also asked "With all those people in the theater, was there nobody that was carrying a gun that could have stopped this guy more quickly?"
The guy was wearing body armor while packing an A-15 with a 100 round clip, a shotgun, and 2 Glocks.
Unless everyone in the theater would have been packing and returned fire (which arguably creates its own set of problems), I respectfully suggest carrying a sidearm is not going to be of much assistance if somone dressed up like the SWAT team and carrying an assault rifle decides to drop by.
