yes, but...

The mass murder in Virginia is hardly a great subject for comedy but Harry Hutton makes a funny observation in response to those people (conservatives and libertarians) who claim that allowing all students to carry guns would have limited the tradgedy becasue the crazed maniac would have been quickly gunned down himself:4
The idea is that if one of the Virginia Tech students had had a gun with him, he could have come to the rescue like Dick Dauntless, and shot the Korean.

Well that’s true. But what if 300 students had guns, and they were all on the look-out for a student with a gun? I’m failing to see the genius of this plan, though no doubt I’ve overlooked something obvious.
