http://www.cbsnews.com/news/paris-te...-by-gun-group/ http://www.cbsnews.com/videos/texas-gun-group-simulates-paris-shooting-3/ Recently a group called The Truth about Guns did a simulation of the Paris terrorist attack except where random staff were armed to see what effect and armed citizenry would have on such an event. The results of their efforts, by their own admission were less than impressive where after many attempts only 2 times resulted with only 1 of the attackers being "killed". From 12 volunteers only 1 survived by running away. my first thought was... so much for the rifle behind every blade of grass. But thinking about this realistically the simulation is far from complete based only on the vague information in the article I'm assuming only 12 attempts with random volunteers of various training and skill. Question: what can armed American civilians do collectively to better prepare to defeat such an attack or is it unrealistic to think so? Please note: this question is NOT a "what would you do" scenario. This is about: is it realistic to think that an armed citizenry can be effective against random terrorist attacks and if so how? Please do not post what you would have done if you were armed in the scenario or the Paris attack.
