So the question is - How hard is it for the average citizen to stop a mass shooting with a handgun?

That's where Comedy Central comes in. Working with the guys from A.L.E.R.T. (Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training) Jordan Klepper goes through eight hours of training to receive his permit to carry a concealed weapon. He is then put through active shooter scenarios to test the "Good Guy With A Gun Hypothesis". The video is both entertaining and informative.
