Sick Yeah.

You're right, there are fundamental problems in a society that spawns this kind of behavior - but fixing those problems is a world away.

Social psychology is not gonna protect any given individual in any given crisis situation in the near term, and in general good, sane people taking ownership of their own safety can't be a bad thing; indeed, a well armed populace of peace loving, stand up people might make future potential mass murderers think twice, body armor or no.

Turning responsibility for our safety solely over to the state is a recipe for disaster unto itself. Those who would surrender liberty for safety will likely get neither.
