The myth of “a good guy with a gun stopping a bad guy with a gun,” is dispelled in this ABC News clip. Police explain that it takes consistent and constant training to overcome the physiological hurdles to quick responses in a crisis situation. This busts the current narrative to arm teachers as a solution to our epidemic of gun violence.
Watch even an expert with 100s of hours of shooting go through a police training and still fail to draw his weapon quickly in a crisis. When human experience a stressful situation fine motor skills slow down, so drawing a gun and shooting becomes nearly impossible. Watch as multiple people fail to stop a shooter, and even a cop with training shoots himself in the foot while holstering his gun.
