That will deter most of these incidents, and provide a means of dealing with those not deterred in a timely fashion.
This sounds a lot like the reasoning that was used when Florida and other states went from "can issue" gun laws to "shall issue" gun laws. Carnage was predicted. Never happened. The overwhelming incidents of gun violence are not committed by people lawfully carrying a CCP or a lawfully purchased gun
You make what would probably prove to be be a similarly overwrought claim.
