Letter: You might have to shoot back


OK, you've worked for 20 years in a office or classroom. In those 20 years you've never felt the need or desire to carry a firearm. So my question is this: In those 20 years, how many times did a person with a gun burst in and start shooting people like fish in a barrel?

I am a Vietnam veteran and there is only one thing I know for sure: Everything changes when somebody shoots back.

Imagine any active shooter situation, and this time there's a concealed carry present, and that person could summon the courage just to shoot back. Or imagine there is no gun present, and now you're just cowering behind your desk waiting to get shot in the head. How can anybody say being totally unarmed is a good idea?
