I am sure it would have. Loughner would have realized he was within the 1,000 feet of an elected official while carrying a firearm. Loughner would have retreated to outside the 1,000 feet of an elected official and probably take the time to measure the distance. He would have a sudden attack of virtue and decide too many bystanders would be hit if he tried to engage his target from a distance of over 1,000 feet. He would have gone home and waited for the next guns for toys program or simply melt the gun down and use the metals to form a necklace to donate to Sarah Brady.
