One of the three people killed recently by a Las Vegas couple, Jerad and Amanda Miller, was an armed civilian, Joseph Wilcox. Two police officers who were also killed, Igor Soldo and Alyn Beck, were ambushed while having lunch. Seated in a booth, they had no chance to defend themselves, according to witnesses.
Wilcox, 31, was inside the Wal-Mart store when the Millers entered firing and ordering everyone to evacuate. Wilcox, who carried a gun, decided to confront the shooter, apparently unaware that Amanda was with Jerad. After he walked past her on his approach toward Jerad, Amanda fatally shot him.
This bint Parker’s answer is, predictably, to make sure that only the Millers would be armed in this scenario.
For the children!
Interesting, though: I’d heard rumors that an armed citizen had attempted to engage the Millers in Wal-Mart, but all the reports I say assiduously avoided mentioning that the rumors were true.
