Concealed Carry permit holders live in a dream world. interesting video and article

"average people without crisis training" can NOT react effectively. THIS IS A VERY INTERESTING VIDEO. even very experienced people freeze when confronted they feel stress, fright and these emotions freeze your actions. even cops who don't train for even 1 month, have problems reacting. when confronted with violent situation, assess. don't panic, use your head. sometimes "playing dead" will save your life and the life of those people around you.


The controlled study with 6 people documented in these videos show that concealed carry permit holders are fooling themselves if they think they will be able to react effectively to armed aggressors. Most CCW holders won’t even be able to un-holster their gun. They will more likely be killed themselves or kill innocent bystanders than stop the aggressor.
