Pain is the best teacher,but nobody wants to go to his class.
When the past smothers the present, there is only desperation. When the future absorbs the present, life stands still. In either case a decision must be made because you only live now and you are only what you are now.

I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

Like custom guns and stuff? Check this out...
Its just more one sided crap to make concealed carriers look bad.
That's been around awhile and we've discussed it here ad infinitum... But it lets you know just how the normal person thinks, thanks to watching "the news." It makes it harder to convince average Joe that a person with a permit to carry isn't just a wannabe superhero, with no ability to protect himself, let alone others.
The press rarely talks to someone who has defended themselves and or others successfully with a handgun.
There are many such incidents, far more than are reported. There are exceptions... like the one above. But, not often enough.
It could be worse!
I have seen that video before; I laughed the first time I watched it and I laughed this time again. The video is unbelievable biased. But what else can do expect from ABC News?

I like how the CCW guy is sitting in the same place each time. I also like how the BGs go right at them instead of really shooting random people. I'd like to see someone do this the exact opposite way and measure the results.
Take two folks who know almost nothing about guns and make them come in and shoot the prof. Then have a trained expert ccw guy or two mixed into a frantic crowd. The BGs OODA loop would never catch up. They would be completely surprised by return fire coming from out of a swirling mass of movement.

Given the choice of having my gun on me, and having a chance to stop a deranged killer, or waiting the 30 or more minutes needed for the police to respond to a mass shooting. Doesn't seem like it should take a rocket scientist to decide which is the best choice.
Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.

It's a toss-up as to which network is the most dis-honest and anti gun. My personal list is
As much as I think Fox is the most honest network, they jump on shooting stories with the same semi-hysteria as all the others. While their editorial content is pretty much fair and balanced, their story coverage isn't always held to the same standard.

When you want to do the study with people who have more than 50 hours of firearm training, let me know.
All you gotta do is provide the FX gun and 20 rounds for me to get the feel of how that weapon shoots...
We gonna have some fun then. Oh, well...not so much, because I imagine it's a lot more frightening for the "active shooter" to go up against someone who would know what they are doing...
And their is no way in hell you'd ever show that.
Cowards & scum.
This is a nice summary of the many unexamined assumptions of people who first decide that they should oppose CCW, then try to think of reasons why. "Since you wouldn't stand a chance against a team of highly skilled operators swarming your location, there is no point in carrying." "Since you could never outdraw someone who is already pointing a gun at your face, there is no point in carrying." "Since it would be dangerous to shoot at someone who is surrounded by innocent bystanders, there is no point in carrying."
Well, what if you just don't do those things, and instead carry for the situation when a gun actually could help?
But people who oppose CCW seem to think we believe that a gun makes us into Superman, able to solve all problems while leaping buildings, etc. In fact, I subscribe to the philosophy that "in a situation when you would otherwise be completely f***ed, a gun, used correctly, might make you a little less f***ed." And the downside is .....?

I live close to Virginia Tech. What did the deranged killer do as soon as the police showed up and he knew he would meet armed resistance? He offed himself like the coward that he was. They didn't even get close to him, he did is as soon as he knew they had arrived. There's a reason these maniacs choose gun-free zones to carry out their intention. It's because they know they won't meet any resistance before they carry out their deed, and then when the police show up they off themselves (not always, but usually). How many lives could have been saved if one well trained concealed carrier had been armed and presented resistance? The world may never know. As it was, they were helpless sitting ducks. Many of them stuck in classrooms unable to even run or hide. My wife was at the campus post office that morning...that hits close to home.

Does anyone remember the days following 911?...I was under the impression that we figured out the fallacy of that mantra, but here it is again, the same foolish dictum being force fed to the masses by the same scheming idiots who parroted it before...I was wondering how long it would take them to reverse that stance as it's clearly at odds with the world dominance agenda of the political elite and the glitterati.
...As an aside...
How many of you folks have noticed just how much of each nightly newscast is taken up with "helpful" training propaganda to teach us how to think and react to everyday things?...this is not the country that most people want to believe it is, and is getting further from it with each passing day.
