That guy knew no one else in that coffee shop was likely to be carrying heat, and probably felt much more able to do what he did. He did get what he deserved in the end, and saved the state a LOT of money. Had he gone to a trial, he would only have gotten a prison sentence as Washington won't carry out the death penalty. I think whoever got him in the end knew this and did the job right.
You are actually making the argument that he targeted armed individuals, and gun control is to blame? Right...
BTW, there is no correlation between mass shootings and the relative ability of citizens to carry guns.
