Just like there are plenty of alternatives to semiautomatic guns that don't massacre 50 people in a few minutes.
You do realize this guy had 3 hours.
A couple of glock handguns and a few full clips would have done about the same.

Cause the cops would have held off for so long if he had a couple of glocks.

You are one smart person.

these cops were not smart, they were holding off to negotiate, he was holed up in the bathroom most of the time

In what timeframe did the actual killings take place?

I really don't want to fault the cops or victims for not fighting back
I want to 100% lay this on Mateen, I am not a fan of the assault rifles and was fine the 10 years they were banned. I am not going to buy that banning that gun would have stopped Mateen for killing a bunch of gay people.

They were routinely coming in the building to drag people out to save as many as they could.

It's hard to judge what happened without having been there.

Any gun owner?

Shit, that'll help. Certainly won't make the list meaningless, will it?

Plus, does anyone ever stop to think... some might've tried to fight back and were shot and killed? It's very hard to judge this. We can all pretend like in our minds we would've done the right thing or we would be in the right place at the right time fully calm and collected and bash the fellow over the head with a bottle full of liquor (I have this imagination, myself). But, in reality, this probably wasn't at all possible. There are a couple stories of mass shootings that I recall where bum rushing a shooter has gotten people killed. There are also heroic stories where that worked. Can't judge. Not fair.

It depends. Are you a good man with a gun?

If so, you will take him down with one shot and save everyone because that's what happens.

If you are a good man with a gun.

Gun rights advocate (or just a local loudmouth, either way) in Texas yammered about having guns for her family's protection.

Well, now after a family argument, she shot both her daughters and then was shot by police.

Guns might protect you from Bad Guys With Guns, until that Bad Guy With a Gun is someone inside your own house.

Even if he had 3 hours, the time it takes for one man to maul down 50 people is FAR more fast and efficient with one of those semiautomatics than with a couple handguns. THat would require him to switch guns, giving people the opportunity to overpower him. Plus, he'd have far less bullets, less bullets a minute... how do you not see the difference?
