Unfortunately running out of bullets would have been the least of their worries. The civil rights movement was a long way away. Blacks who fought back endangered themselves and their families. David and Mr. Morrison would most likely have been killed. Firing a gun at a lynch mob would give the mob implicit authority to do whatever they wanted. Just think of an atrocity and the mob would justify in the name of "justice". .
