And no one pulled their guns out August 21, 2013 8:45 am

A common argument I hear for concealed carry is that the armed citizenry will step up until the police can arrive. Walmart sells guns. Walmart has a clientele who love their guns and probably carry one or more guns with or without a concealed carry permit. But when a man walked into a South Carolina Walmart and killed his wife, no one intervened. Police only caught him after he wrecked his truck during the get-a-way.

Holiday shoppers at a South Carolina Walmart watched in horror as a man stabbed his wife to death in the store during a heated argument, authorities said.

So these arguments for guns, are they invalid? No one tried to help despite the armory in sporting goods. And what about the concealed carry people? Where were they? I contend it is an invalid argument and that civilians will not take action. In this case, the murderer walked out of the store unopposed.
