How do you protect soft targets? That’s really the challenge. You can’t have armed police forces everywhere.
Societies have to think about how they’re going to approach the problem. One is to say we want an armed citizenry; you can see the reason for that. Another is to say the enclaves are so secure that in order to get into the soft target you’re going to have to pass through extraordinary security.
