I am not near the manhunt, but have family and friends right there.
(I grew up in Watertown.)
If I were in my house anywhere near there I would certainly wish I had a gun... just in case.
The guy could be hiding in someone's garage or in some wooded area. It's not unreasonable to think he could/will break into a home and try to take a hostage. You are certainly better off in that situation if you have a gun AND know how to use it.
Pretty good guess work there it turns out. So, let's take a look at the person who went out to look for him in the boat. I find it hard to believe, with the area on lockdown upon finding a trail of blood leading into their boat, the person went to investigate the boat he was hiding was unarmed.
I'll bet that person had a gun, and that took a lot of courage to go out there like that....imagine the fear!
