Anti-Gunners Think Bullets From Rifles Too Fast To Be Countered With Handguns

By now, we know that many of the people who will pontificate on matters of firearms tend to be clueless on actual firearms. They think they know all they need to know, so they opine on the topic and think people should just agree with them because they’re oh-so-very-smart.
However, these oh-so-very-smart people are usually kind of dumb. Or, at the very least, they say some really dumb stuff.
The latest example comes from the current gun debate, where many of us–myself included–are arguing that armed teachers could well counter mass shootings.
It seems that some think handguns simply aren’t enough to counter rifle-wielding madmen.
Every now and again I’m rendered speechless by the lengths the left will go to in order to scare people into compliance when it comes to their ideas about guns.
MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell took the cake when he suggested that anyone wielding a handgun is no match for someone with a rifle because the bullet from rifle travels faster.

How stupid can you be? But you don’t know you’re being “dumb”, but you should be able to know that you don’t know a lot of stuff. No slam on anyone. No one could possible know everything, or even everything about one thing.
But when you’re a “leader in media” with a big megaphone, you have an obligation to be informed. With experts at their beck and call, why not let someone, who’s an expert on the topic, give their opinion.
It’s dogma that a mass shooter can be rushed when reloading. It’s not hard to envision that a “victim”, with a concealed carry weapon, can use that interval to put a few holes in mass shooter. Unless the mass shooter has trained reloading, there is a good chance it’ll take a few extra seconds and he may jam the weapon.
