I guess you missed the news. The police are in a running gun (& bomb) battle with the Boston Marathon Bombing suspects in the Watertown area of Boston. One suspect is dead...and the other is on the run.

I think that one of the notions common to the anti-gunner is the idea that being a victim is 'noble'; as if it is better to be noble in your suffering than disruptive in your own defense.
