"Advocates have carried their rifles at the Alamo in San Antonio and outside mosques in the Dallas suburbs. But city and county leaders said the presence of armed protesters openly carrying rifles on Thursday through downtown Dallas had created confusion for the police as the attack unfolded, and in its immediate aftermath made it more difficult for officers to distinguish between suspects and marchers. Two men who were armed and a woman who was with them were detained, fueling an early, errant theory by the police that there was more than one gunman."
Oh you mean the cops couldn't automatically tell which ones were the "good guys with guns"? WHODA THUNK.
And the good guys with guns weren't able to shoot the sniper.
I know, right? *shocked*
