I watched some of it and it was very poorly executed to say the least. They skewed everything as much as possible towards their gun control agenda.

If they had changed a few things it would have been more fair. They should have had the bad guys who walked into the classroom with no prior knowledge that there were armed students in the classroom and maybe even had multiple students in the classroom with guns. It sure seemed like the bad guys not only knew there was an armed student but they probably had prior knowledge of which student was armed.

How about having some of the other students in the hallway outside the classroom so that they could enter the room or wait for the bad guys to come out? Their scenario makes it seem like if the bad guy kills the one and only student in the shcool with a gun, the killing would go on unimpeded.

My thoughts exactly, tht first scenario (didn't watch the whole thing yet) was horrible.

I am not suprised a kid couldnt pull a gun after having used one for 1 day. Did he have a glove on?

Yep, there are alot of probelms with their little scenario. I wonder why that LE agency agreed to cooperate with them?

Why wouldn;t they gte a few gun rights advocates to analyze their scenarios before the story. I guess the answer is it would have been shot to hell (pardon the pun) by them and they knew it.

Editing can do some tricky things to a taped situation. They may have welcomed the opportunity to educate some people on the use of weapons, and I think it builds them up in a way, showing how well trained they are. But also, some LEO's are totally against individuals carrying guns (not a ton but I have seen a few), so maybe it fit in with their agenda.

X2. Actually met one. He his opinion is civilians with guns are more dangerous with crooks with guns. Apparently, all CHL holders have "attitudes" and "big egos".

Guys like that are closed minded pricks.

I'd rather see good people with guns any day of the week.

Most police officers I know think the way you do. What percent would you say are against concealed carry?

I lol'd at the cop putting the Glock into his holster and shooting himself in the foot.

Would that have happened if he had been carrying a revolver?

Maybe one out of ten, if that.

I would venture to say that a large percentage of police officers are like me and are former military.

You don't have many people that enter the military that are anti-gun.
