“In actual shootings, citizens do far better than law enforcement on hit potential,” said White. “They hit their targets and they don’t hit other people. I wish I could say the same for cops. We train more, they do better.”
Via Instapundit, we get this.
Despite the fears generated by the Gun Fearing Weenies liberals police can’t be everywhere, and even when the are on scene, they generally aren’t as good at hitting their targets. They generally don’t just “spray and pray” unload their guns on target(s).
But the “civilian protector” doesn’t fit the orderly plans the desk jockys and their administrative bosses like to game out in their retreats. It disturbs them to not have everything under their control so they’d rather have everyone disarmed….even if it causes significant loss of life because a civilian can’t take care of things at the scene early on.
Most real cops admit that they are all for concealed carry. It’s the upper level “management” that prefers the power and control to be in the hands of the police.
