Yeah kids do experience a lot of things when flying free from the nest. But I sorta think of it like the saying “give a person a fish and you feed them for a day, teach a person to fish and you feed them for a lifetime.” Hopefully the kid learns enough skills from you in order to face/process the world when alone.

However kids grow up and need to make their own decisions. And form their own identity. Sometimes complete opposite from there parents, sometimes similar and often a mix of everything inbetween.

Hopefully you set a solid foundation when raising your kid and as the days pass you monitor that foundation for cracks.

Another good guy with a gun took down a bad guy and saved lives.

So... hypothetically... if this person hadn't legally-purchased, trained with, and been carrying one of those evil "guns"... whoever the other guy was could've killed everyone in the place, taken whatever he wanted and left without any opposition, until the police showed up "eventually." Instead, for those reasons and those reasons ALONE, the only one dead is the criminal.

Fascinating.
