Wholly apart from the two guys in Michigan who shot each other to death yesterday.
ABC News ran some tests. People with concealed carry permits — how would they help in mass shooting situations?
Liberals Unite commented on these videos:
The controlled study documented in these videos show that concealed carry permit holders are fooling themselves if they think they will be able to react effectively to armed aggressors. Most CCW holders won’t even be able to un-holster their gun. They will more likely be killed themselves or kill innocent bystanders than stop the aggressor.
For more details, see “Unintended Consequences: Pro-Handgun Experts Prove That Handguns Are a Dangerous Choice for Self-Defense.” http://www.vpc.org/studies/unincont.htm.
CCW permit holders don’t protect innocent people. They kill them.
Perhaps we should discuss preventing these cases altogether. Discuss politely.
