Imagine what would have happened if anyone in the audience had attempted to return fire.
There were plenty of cops in the audience, but you can't fire back at someone shooting from the 32nd floor of a hotel room, 400 yards away with high-powered, automatic weapons.
And any 'hero' pulling out a gun in the audience is going to look like another shooter in that sort of horrible chaos.
This idea of empowered gun owners deterring mass killers is moronic.
The scenario implies that we'd all recognise the enemy at once...
