It's Happened Again

Now that the jury in James Holmes' trial has decided that yes, he could be considered for the death penalty...

Another theater shooting has happened -- this time in Louisiana.

I feel sick. 

The only comfort, if you can call it that, is the shooter committed suicide. (Apparently he ran outside, heard the police sirens, went back in and shot himself. Two policemen who just happened to be there watching another movie were actually headed his way.)
     Now there won't be an expensive, drawn-out trial like the one Coloradoans have endured.

Over the screams of gun control advocates, I wonder:

    What if someone in the theater had a concealed permit? Would that have stopped this gunman that much sooner?
