The headline you want from the media?
"Jilted Lover Shoots Girlfriend And One Other Before Being Shot By Police"
Now, in your world where there should be multiple ccw's in movie theaters, what happens when the police enter the theater and there's 5-6 random people exchanging fire???
And your headline is "Criminal shoots people, time to take law abiding citizens guns away"
It would indeed be a tragedy if the history of the human race proved to be nothing more than the story of an ape playing with a box of matches on a petrol dump.
