Mas, I read your article on Lance Thomas and at time of writing you had been unable to get an interview. Don't know it that has changed, since original article. Two things I would have done early on in Mr. Thomas' situation. Did he do either and would you have recommended either if asked? Get some bullet proof material for cover. As I recall, both from your article and you tube video Mr. Thomas was often or always behind a counter. Boilplate or something in the counter to stop bullets would have seemed to be a good idea after the first or second attacks. Or some other form of cover. And how about a long gun. I know space tight, but a short barrel shotgun would seem like a good idea to have handy. In you tube video he was even making a call to 911 as bullets were flying, so he should have been able to reach a shotgun.
