    I never meant to suggest that I don't believe anyone should have intervened. All I was saying was that carrying would not have prevented this. I am not saying that others should not intervene if their fellow man is being accosted. It's unfortunate that it did happen, but with a bus full of sleepy people, who honestly believes that if they had been one of those sleepy people, they would have been able to prevent this from happening? Sure, any of us would have jumped into action, but only after the fact.

Those bus trips are quite long and tiring and you're bound to doze off at some point. For those of us who can't afford to fly and don't have cars that can go long distances, this is the only way to get from point A to point B. How unfortunate.
    Well, I'm really referring to everyone involved. The unfortunate victim or anyone else wouldn't have been able to respond quickly enough to stop this guy from doing the beheading. Supposedly he even got a chance to eat some of the victim too. Yikes. After the fact, a gun would be helpful to keep him from being a threat to anyone else.

    I sleep on airplanes occasionally, but never if I have questions about the basic sanity of anyone sitting in my immediate vicinity. It's always a good idea to have an improvised weapon close at hand just in case. They might ban everything else, but newspapers are safe for now.

    That's all I was trying to make everyone understand. While having a CCW permit does increase one's odds of prevailing over a criminal, it is not a guarantee either, as this particular case shows.

  5. The gravety of this is going to come out .Eating the body is just to far off. Jeffery Dalmer was a good boy he just had strange habits.

    As was said if the victim had a gun it might not have made much difference seeing as how he was asleep. However if I am one of the passengers on the bus and someone starts carving up passengers I sure would like to have one on me. At least that way the carnage can be minimized. As it were all you had were fourty some odd sheeple running for their lives.
