To clarify, I was being a little facetious when I said, "How do you know they don't have training"
I went on to talk about how a mass shooting might not be quite as complicated and impossible to think through as the anti gun crowd would have you believe.
But, how many military veterans are currently attending Universities and have permits? How many police officers are taking classes at a university? They qualify as students, and they definitely have the training. Plus, when those cops and vets want more advanced training, where do they go? Magpul, Suarez International, Gunsite, Thunder Ranch, John Farnam, etc. . . Guess who else attends those classes? Anybody willing to pay the tuition. That's what I meant by the training is available to anyone.
I was trying bust the blanket statement that 'Sure I guess we'll allow these kids to have their gun if it makes them feel better, but they aren't actually going to be able to do anything.'
My point was that you don't know how much training any given CCW holder has, and we shouldn't be trying to discourage people from taking responsibility for themselves.
And if they seek out such active shooter training, they will find that the best way to stay alive in that situation is to A- get away. If you can't get away then B- Barricade yourself in your classroom, and if that doesn't work then C- You must stop the attacker. Other wise they will kill everyone in the room. If you have a gun, then you can fight back very effectively.
You are very correct. I just received an email today from a Marine, now attending college. If forgot to mention this in this episode.
