I heard about the gun show thing. How tragic. Luckily, no one opened fire and mowed down 50 people. It was that close, apparently.

Yes, accidents are going to happen. 5 people got injured out of thousands (maybe tens of thousands) that attended those shows nationwide yesterday. That isn't even a statistic worth talking about.
5 accidentally shot out of 10,000 isn't significant? Heinz field holds 65,000. If everyone was carrying at the next game you attend and only 32 are shot (higher if people, God forbid, drink at the game) you are fine and will feel safe with your family there. Odds in your favor and all.

All generalizations are dangerous.
