Re: "brave Johnny wore a flak jacket under his suit"
This behavior is called "bigotry" and, if used to infer that shooters are dangerous, supporting and spreading bigotry.
The attitude about shooters rather than criminals being the problem is common to our anti-gunners. They just don't get it that, unlike a footy game, basketball game and such, the shooting venues don't require armed police to check the crowd (though I was told that the Aussie police do stand guard at shooting events) and there is no drunken violence or riot. Bigotry is the rule of the day both here and in Oz.
Smart Gun + 1 Battery + 3 Wires = Dumb Gun
PC = Agenda driven groupthink filter on reality.
