Could Concealed Carry Have
Saved Lives In Orlando?

By Bob Owens. June 13th, 2016

Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump suggested yesterday that having concealed handguns inside Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, might have saved lives when the club was attacked by an Islamic terrorist.

Donald Trump on Monday said the Orlando nightclub attack wouldn't have been as bad if the clubgoers had been armed.

"If you had some guns in that club the night that this took place, if you had guns on the other side, you wouldn't have had the tragedy that you had," the presumptive GOP presidential nominee said Monday on CNN.

"If people in that room had guns, with the bullets flying in the opposite direction right at him, right at his head, you wouldn't have had the same tragedy that you ended up having."

Trump said people don't even yet know how bad the tragedy is, because the number of casualties will likely grow.

"I hear the injured are so greatly injured," he said.

"But if you had guns in that room, even if you had a number of people having it strapped to your ankle or strapped to their waste, where bullets could have flown in the other direction right at him, you wouldn't have had the same kind of a tragedy."

50 people were murdered in the most deadly terrorist attack in the United States since 9/11. Another 53 were injured.

Predictably, the reliably anti-gun mainstream media was outraged at Trump's suggestion. But what do actual defensive firearms experts think?

Bearing Arms wanted to know, and contacted four defensive firearms trainers to discuss the terrorist attack as we currently understand it .....

Various expert opinions within the article make it perfectly plain that at very least, some carnage could have been mediated had there been even a few CCW patrons present. In fact it doesn't even take expert opinion, when common sense on its own can easily see possibilities for limiting a serious situation. Once again, a "gun-free-zone" demonstrates total self defense impotence - all this while "gun-ban-mania" has reached fever pitch.
