Upside... Do you want to discuss the substantial number of statistical and methodological flaws of most of the studies cited in this hit piece, or do you still want to use it as the basis for your argument?
best... you have got to get out more often... it's the rt. wingnuts, like you, who wish to set our country back to the dark ages. get out of that bubble. the thin air is causing brain damage. next, you'll want to do away with women's suffrage.
20/20 took a group of college students of varying familiarity with guns, and provided them with professional training exceeding the level required by most states for concealed carry permits. Then the producers recorded the students reacting to simulations in which an aggressive, active gunman entered a classroom. In every simulation, the student failed to stop the aggressor and was badly or fatally wounded; in one instance, the student narrowly missed shooting a victim of the assault.
HAHAHA - this very simulation was prejudiced against the CW holder because the aggressor had an idea of who to target first (knew who had the gun - which completely negates the idea of concealed carry.)
According to the weapons experts 20/20 consulted, only professionals who drill continuously in live shooter situations can hope to succeed in such chaotic situations. Firearms instructor Glen Dorney told host Diane Sawyer, “Even police officers, through extensive training, if you don’t continue with your training, ongoing training, it’s a perishable skill. You’ll lose it.” When Sawyer asked him, “How long before you’re going to lose it, even at your level of training?” Dorney answered, “If you go for a month to two months without training, you lose it.” A Time feature (1/16/13) that looked at how unpredictably even well-trained police respond to crisis situations came to similar conclusions.
Show me a crime victim that says they are either (a) glad they didnt have a gun or (b) wish they wouldnt have had a gun - I'll show you hundreds that are glad they did have their gun with them.
I thought you were better than this beternwho.....
