Just an idle thought

Seattle: "Good guy" with pepper spray stops "bad guy" with gun. Good guy and bad guy both still alive; bad guy being arraigned for trial.

Las Vegas: "Good guy" with gun goes to stop "bad guy" with gun. Good guy and bad guys all dead.

Just a thought, but maybe having a gun is not enough, even after the shooting starts so you know it's a bad guy with a gun and not some open-carry advocate...

In Las Vegas it didn't occur to the "good guy with the gun" that the "bad guy with a gun" would be female (she's the one who shot and killed him).

Yes. He had no training. He just thought having a gun was enough.

I imagine a professional law-enforcement officer would've known to look for the possibility of multiple shooters, and to regard women as potential suspects as well. The inherent sexism, as well as amateurism, of "the good guy with a gun" cost this otherwise well-meaning but under-qualified person his life, and has left behind bereaved family and friends.
