Man stomping toddler shot.

Several people tried to stop a man from beating, kicking and stomping on a toddler. The unarmed people failed, then somebody with a gun interveened and put and end to the onslaught. Maybe if the first responders had also had effective weapons, or just one, the child would have survived it.

Some people like to tell tales of the child victims of guns ... do they ever stop to think of the victims of unarled attackers who could have easely been stopped by an armed citizen?
The police officer who stopped the attack did his job to the best of his abilities, but policemen aren't always around, and it doesn't take long to lose your life if you're only 2 years old ...

They should not be the only ones ...
