There's a lot of things that could be discussed, but why focusing on rather unimportant aspects?
Good points. Unfortunate this thread has become to some extent a discussion of the merits of gun control. Whether or not guns can help or hurt in any situation totally depends on the particulars of the setting and the individuals. It's mindless to debate the issue one way or the other in a hypothetical situation.
It's more relevant to look at the motives of the attackers, not the technology they employed in carrying out their assault.
