So the question is - How hard is it for the average citizen to stop a mass shooting with a handgun? With the latest spate of mass shootings and terroristic acts, comes the usual rhetoric of politicians on both sides of the gun debate. One of the easier recognizable lines is "The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun."
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.
