Are you kidding...the news loves hero stories as much as they love tragedy... Remember when that pilot landed the jet in Hudson River...big hero story. There are no hero stories about saving people with guns because they just don't happen...vigilantes are not heros.. Like that guy who shot the teen last year because he thought he was a threat walking home through a gated community...he thought he was a big hero for a few minutes.
