Relations and friends of those caught up in the attack were warned not to phone in case the ringing gave away the location of those hiding from the gunman.
“We were in the grass. We had to be quiet as we hid,” said Lisa Irene Johansen, one of the crowd. “He was wearing a police uniform, with a shooting vest, and there was complete panic as he shot.”

Score another massacre for the “no guns” culture.
For the cost of one of those expensive phones, one person could have ended this shooting spree.
I don’t understand people. Self-defense is both a RIGHT and a RESPONSIBILITY.
And, the beauty of allowing people to defend themselves, the whole flock of Sheeple are defended.
Even a girlie 380 “pocket rocket”, aimed badly at the killer, could have turned the day. Surely the killer had to reload? To kill 80+.
When do “We, The Sheeple” wake up and say enough is enough. Wishing guns away works as well as wishing drugs away.
“An armed society is a polite society. Manners are good when one may have to back up his acts with his life.” —- Robert A. Heinlein
Good people, when permitted to defend themselves, will defend civil society.
I’d even assert that the mere POSSIBILITY of a “few sheepdog in the flock” would be enough to discourage criminals.
Who’d want to be on receiving end of some crazy woman’s “pea shooter”? Even wearing a vest wouldn’t be a guarantee of safety. Ever seen how people shoot? While the may aim for the center of mass, that isn’t where the bullet always winds up.
I’m for unrestricted carry.
Don’t tell me we need instacheck; that means that the criminals buy guns on the street where they always have.
