So, by now, everyone has read the various comments on the 20/20 hit piece on guns. But the more interesting bit is that the game is rigged. The did a scenario to prove that a gun wouldn’t help in a mass shooting. Despite evidence to the contrary. The scenario is that they put a bunch of non-CCW holders in a room, the had less than adequate training, and it’s clear that the shooter knew who was strapped. The game was rigged. Watch it here. As Sebastian notes:
Raise you hand if you carry a retention holster concealed at 1:00?
Now, let’s replay the scenario with real equipment. The mass shooter doesn’t know who is strapped. Or, hell, we’ll let him know who is strapped only the armed citizen is played by Todd Jarrett. We can rig the game too.
More realistically, any CCW holder would have a better advantage if the mass muderer didn’t know who was packing. In a mass shooting, some one is going to die. It’s just a question of how quickly they are stopped.

True and they don’t usually do dynamic entries.
