I guess I look at incidents like this as I do strikes of lightning. No, it isn't an act of God. But rather, it is rare, and there is little I or anyone can do to prevent it. We don't stop going out or doing anything because we might get struck by lightning. If it is raining and thundering we may stay inside, but we do not stop everything because a storm might come up with lightning and kill me.
I do not know where the exits are. I am just not that afraid of my surroundings that I feel I must always know of a way out. Walking around aways looking over our shoulder for some threat takes some of the pleasure out of life. Hiding inside from April through October because of the possibility of lightning would seriously lower the quality of life. And for me, carrying around a weapon would be a serious nuisance. And the day I wondered into a mall where some nutcase was blowing people away, I would have probably chosen to leave the gun at home.
