Katie Couric: Saying Armed Good Guys Stop Bad Guys Is A “Specious Argument”

Incredulous at Lauer’s observation that many Americans believe “the only thing that can stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun,” Couric indignantly dismissed this as a “specious argument,” citing an anecdotal account of a young man she interviewed who claimed having a gun in a dangerous situation would not have helped him at all. With all due respect to this young man, I can’t help but wonder if the teachers and staff at Sandy Hook might have benefited from having a gun or two on them when Adam Lanza showed up on campus:

“The fatal shooting of 20 children at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, in December 2012 spurred congressional legislation calling for background checks on firearm sales that was ultimately defeated.”
