Really? Benghazi? I guess Stevens died because no one had a gun, if only there had been a gun.You are talking about two lawyers who live in the middle of a large city. The fact that they even had firearms they probably sort of knew how to use means they are already light years more prepared than the family next to them. Do you really expect people of this walk of life to be prepping and doing tactical training regularly? Put into perspective who we are talking about here. Had they not even taken the small step of arming themselves you could well see the St. Louis version of what happened to Ambassador Stevens. Cut them a break.
I had not heard of the Kalashnikov carrying Libyan militias roaming the streets of American cities in technicals while burning tires. Thank Odin and the gods I can slay them all with my AR because of the Chuck Norris and Steven Seagal films I binge watch, I am the real Jason Bourne! This is SPARTA!!!
Seriously though, people who don't train and don't have backup are the last people who should consider hunting down trouble if it comes knocking and the ones who need solid strategy the most.
