What’s up with MSNBC? Are they slow in the head? I know liberalism is a mental disorder but….wow, they really are idiotic after this comment.
The news anchors made a statement arguing that handguns are too slow to stop a school shooter. Their logic behind that? They said that rifles apparently shoot “three times faster.”
A HANDGUN WILL CAN BE USED TO SHOOT AND KILL SOMEONE JUST AS QUICKLY AS A RIFLE.
One armed citizen could have easily taken down the punk.
MSNBC anchor Lawrence O’Donnell said, “A bullet fired from an AR-15 travels 3x faster than one from a handgun…and yet the president and the NRA think giving teachers guns will stop a school shooter.”

Stephanie Ruhle similarly asked, “How does the best marksman in the world with a handgun take down a shooter with an AR-15 (bullets travel 3x faster).”
While bullets fired from rifles do travel faster than those fired by handguns, the difference comes down to a matter of milliseconds, which would be negligible in any confrontation with a shooter. In close range situations, the difference in bullet velocity matters even less.
The pair also seemingly failed to consider why handguns are standard issue weapons for police officers.
Also remember that Reagan was surrounded by the secret service in 1981…yet, he was shot.
How will teachers with guns protect students?
