Are you kidding me?! First off, to do this, you have to wait till he's reloading -- in other words AFTER he's already shot a lot of people. Secondly, does anyone here REALLY want to have to rely on ballpoint pen to stop a gunman? Those pen wielders were improvising? in desperation, and they did it heroically. But wouldn't you rather have a gun, and maybe the ability to return fire and stop the guy before he can get more than one or two shots off at most?
