@JaLacaob: I wondered about that, but notice that an image from the correct video briefly displays before changing to the wrong video. Not sure what happened.

Clearly, all missing the point of the video.
@kickan, you should be banned from owning a computer.

and how many police officers have been killed in that time frame by people without a concealed carried weapon permit?

Let's see, 11 murders in 5.5 years...that's 2 per year...divided by 10 million CCW permit holders in the US...that's an annual rate of 0.02 murders per 100,000 CCW permit holders per year.

Compare that to 5.3 murders per 100,000 for the general population over the same period of time, and you find that CCW permit holders are 265 times LESS likely to commit a murder than the general population.

Suck it, libs.

WTH? I didn't see any 'experiment video' instead this loaded a CCW cop killer video.

Post Fail, and by the comments I've seen, it's a bunch of anti-gun BS anyways.

this is crap. if you just look on line you will find many reports of crimes stopped by an armed civilian. i would love to see a retaliation video to this.

After seeing what was supposed to posted:

1. Having a CCW does not make you a cop or obligate you to protect those around you.

2. The position of the hidden gun on his waist is impractical. It is too far forward on his waste.

3. In a high stress scenario, you will regress to the lowest level of mastery. This kid had no practice drawing his weapon, nor was he menatally prepared to control his reaction to the situation at hand.
First and foremost, CYA. Get to cover or concealment. Getting under the desk should have been his first move.

Also why did they put the test subject in such a confined space? There was barely enough room to stand up without falling over, so it is not so shocking that they might have a difficult time getting their weapon out. Although there are no guarantees that you will have plenty of space, in a crisis, it does add bias to the experiment.

(referring to the actual link submitted by FP, read the comments if you don't know what this means)

I have a few problems with this experiment:

1. The shooter was a trained Police instructor, who as others have pointed out knew who had the gun, and where they were seated (front and center btw).

2. Most insane mass shooters will have had about as much experience as someone with a CCW, and would probably react in a similar fashion when confronted with resistance. Actually they would probably be caught off guard because they would not expect someone who is not an officer to pull a gun.

2. The test subject was given a gun with fake bullets, which they knew were fake, So their instincts should have told them to flee or hide, making this whole scenario suspect at best. At the very least the test subject would think this was part of the test, and probably would not know they are supposed to fire back.

Good grief now you gun control freaks are just grasping at straws. This is a clear cut case of selective bias.

Noone says "Why" they shot them.


Infamy from the media but they'd never point that out.

WOW OMFG MAN! They killed ELEVEN people in FOUR years that is quite the figure isn't it...

Tired of seeing dead children on tv and people yapping about how their idea for gun control is best. When a bus crashes and kills 50 it makes the news for a day or 2 when someone kills 20 kids with a gun it is the end of the world and we need new laws amazing.

"the one posted makes you look dumb, lol"

It's a conspiracy to make me look dumb. Also, 9/11 was an inside job!
