Concealed carry has always been a subject of concern for gun owners and the general public. Let’s revisit this discussion on “The View” and examine how the issue has progressed.
A recent segment on “The View” had the ladies who host the show exposing their lack of research and knowledge again, this time it was the subject of concealed carry weapons being allowed on Texas Universities by legally concealed carry licensees. While we broke this down point by point on Gun News Weekly live a few weeks back, here are the nonsensical musings once again for your consideration.
We do want to give credit for the lone voice of reason, co- host Jedediah Bila. She was showing some common sense and obvious experience with guns in the past as she spoke on the concept of “gun free zones” in relation to mass shooting statistics. The others, however, need some education. Remember, this show rates well and has a loyal following daily!
Here is what they got wrong:
1. 1:02 “to get a gun license, you don’t have to actually learn how to shoot the gun”
NOT TRUE: here is a chart that shows the states that do not require live re training in ORANGE.
2. 1:35 “of 160 active shooter situations..... the FBI found only ONE case where an armed civilian intervened to stop an attack”
FALSE – we have cited dozens of stories on Gun News Weekly that have shown concealed permit holders ending a mass shooting within the past 20 years, as well as neutralizing literally hundreds of thousands of potentially deadly personal encounters annually.
3. 1:56 “statistically, you are more likely to kill another civilian or yourself with a gun”
WHAT?!?! So now Concealed carriers are the bad guys shooting other civilians and themselves? This is a made up “statistic” that once she says it, no one questions it because it SOUNDS like she previously supported it with facts, but did not! They do this all of the time on the VIEW...
4. 2:11 “the last thing you need in a dark theatre, with adrenaline pumping, is a bunch of people popping up (to shoot at the bad guy).... because when someone comes to save the day, who are they going to shoot at? Anyone with a gun”
