Did they wish they were armed?

Massachusetts has some of the strictest gun control laws in the country. Probably, some of the residents of Watertown, Cambridge, and surrounding communities attended recent pro-gun-control rallies in the Boston area and cheered the call for even more gun control in their state and nationally.
So I have to wonder how those people felt in the past 18 or so hours. They were warned that a dangerous armed terrorist might be roaming their neighborhood. They were ordered to remain inside with their doors locked until law enforcement found and apprehended the suspect.
As we know now, it ended well. But I wonder how many of those affected residents, hunkered down in fear in their own homes for many hours, desperately wished they had a pistol by their side — just in case.
