Fortunately in this frightening scene the cops were better marksmen than the criminal shooter. As we know, that's not always the case. This could have been "mass murder" and not just a mass shooting.
I couldn't help but notice that this story defies the logic that crazy killers choose their targets and prefer gun-free zones like universities. I've always said that's not true, that crazy people are not usually that circumspect.
The other obvious conclusion is that it's wrong to say law-abiding gun owners would be able to stop someone like this BEFORE he kills. The only thing that prevented this guy from killing, was the fact that he was a lousy shot or just unlucky. In the most gun-rich environment possible, he shot four people before they could stop him.
I wondered if the female police officer who survived due to having had a vest on always wore it in the station. Maybe she knew that in spite of their superior fire power, something like this could happen. Good for her.
