So we need to maintain the country's supply of legally available guns so people who sell guns have plenty of guns to protect their guns from people who want to steal guns... That makes perfect sense.
Happens to be a gun store. Could have been any type of establishment with high dollar inventory, cash business, ATM machine, etc. The drive-in style of attack used by the invaders is a common enough method.
I never understood the "need" argument when applied to firearms. I'm a former marine infantryman. All I "need" to kill someone is my hands. I could kill people more easily with a knife. Or a pistol, or a rifle.
The "need" argument is absurd. Everytime I downgrade the amount of firepower I can untilize, I increase the risk to myself. I don't believe in fair fights, and if I had a homing death ray gun whose death rays would home in on and vaporize whoever was attacking me, I'd take it in a heartbeat.
Amazing how much these armchair generals tell others how much firepower they "need" to protect themselves.
Seeing as how I have little control over the quality of our society, I will defend myself by any means I see fit. Be that with or without firearms. And anyone else should be free to make the same choice.

It's not the caliber of the weapon, It's the quality of the society that keeps us safe
