    Might be time for a moment of prayer for the good people of Chicago

    "It’s like the Aurora, CO theater story plus a restaurant!"

    Except for how its different. The gunman was targeting specific people whom he chased from the restaurant across a parking lot and into a theater. He was armed with a pistol, not a semi-automatic assault rifle. If either of those differences weren't true, this gunman would have killed alot of people.

    There was also an on-duty uniformed police officer in the parking lot. Yet this gunman managed to shoot people in a restaurant, chase them across the parking lot past the on-duty police officer, into a theater, fire shots in the theater and search a bathroom before being shot when he exited the bathroom. Shots were fired in the restaurant, the parking lot and the theater.

    So, the statement that he was shot before he had "a chance" to kill anyone simply is not true. He had plenty of chances to kill plenty of people. He simply chose not to kill the available targets or failed to kill the targets he did fire on. He clearly had plenty of chances to kill alot of people.

    So, what I can gather from this is that every time someone shoots someone with a gun, you people will claim there would have been a massacre except for the armed citizenry present. This particular armed citizen was an off duty police officer, Sgt. Lisa Castellano, with thirteen years experience hired by the theater to provide security. She was not simply "at" the theater.
