On June 7, Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America founder Shannon Watts said a good guy with a gun "has never" stopped a bad guy with a gun.
Watts made this comment in response to a question from CNN host Victor Blackwell.

What a STUPID, STUPID woman.
Thank God nobody watches CNN...otherwise some moron might actually believe this dingbat!!
so cops are not good guys with guns?
I mean just as a base-case..
Well, off the top of my head, the Ft. Hood shooter was taken down by a policewoman with a gun. Remember that we don’t allow military personnel on military bases to have weapons, which he knew since he was a member of the military.
Just an example that these people are full of it.
Sh*t for brains!
LMAO... I’ll bet you can go back a week or 2 here on FR and find NUMEROUS articles where a legal gun owner (GOOD guy) stops something bad from happening...
Fortunately it was on CNN so only about 35 people actually saw it...
Jeanne Hassam — my favorite example of a good GAL who did it.
Where’s your “data” watts??
The US Military must be bad guys also to have saved the US in WWII.
Let’s not forget the lady in Colorado Springs that took the guy out at the church. I guess “she” doesn’t qualify as a good “guy”.
I know of two occurrences of someone stopping a mugging/rape/murder because the potential victim had a gun.
In neither case did the potential victim have to actually fire the gun to make the “bad guy” run away.
And in neither case was the potential victim dumb enough to report the occurrence to the police (in both cases, they were in a “2nd-Ammendment-Free zone”).
Many/most of the events supporting responsible self-defense never make it into the statistics.
Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America is partly funded by Michael Bloomberg.
Well, she did say “guy” so Jeanne doesn’t qualify. Liblogic.
Yes, but their response will be to question the legitimacy or ethics of the self-defense shooters in these instances and thus make them into bad guys.
Ms. Watts, you ignorant slut, I have personally stopped two armed bad guys with my gun.
Didn’t we just commemorate the 70th anniversary of D-Day? When a good guy with a gun does stop a bad guy, the story is suppressed. Case in point-the Portland mall shooting a couple of years ago. When the bad guy saw the good guy’s gun, he shot himself.
How about the Allies defeating the Nazis?
Hmmm. Let’s see. When they showed up to protest at the NRA convention, mz. watts is clearly seen departing in a black SUV with new york plates on it. A little far from it’s home state? Hmmmm. Sure bloomers isn’t footing the entire bill?
Someone should ask the little lady what police are for?
Snap! You go girl!
The new anti gun history book
“Hitler was stopped by having a nice chat over strudel and coffee”.
1 killed, 1 wounded in Fort Smith shootout at Central Mall
Propaganda aimed at those who only feel, and have no thoughts or reasoning skills of their own. Nothing more. Sadly, that group seems to expand every day.
then why aren’t bad guys ruling every facet of the entire world ..??
Yes, I remember that lady with the gun at the church. Of course she’s one of the good guys.
I remember too, in 1984, at the San Ysidro massacre at McDonald’s in San Ysidro, CA, near San Diego, the perpetrator was taken out by police snipers.
We could make a long list of bad guys who were taken out by the good guys. Would it make a difference to the media and these liberals? Maybe not, but it would be good to have some balance in this endless gun control debate.
It’s not facts that motivate antis, it’s hearing stuff like this on TV that convinces people. She knows this, and is not stupid nor is she uninformed. She knows how to use mass media to influence consensus.
So far this year there have been 15 justifiable homicides in Detroit and many times as many non fatal defensive shootings. The murder rate is down 24% this year from the same period last year and the police chief will be the first to tell you that armed citizens are the primary reason.
They are getting extremely desperate when they blatantly lie like this and expect people to believe it.
I’m sure she is going all over spreading those lies. And unfortunately, so many people will believe her.
Amazing isn’t it. When the chief made those comments I figured he was toast. Nothing like success to prove your point.
Defensive gun use
Estimates over the number of defensive gun uses vary, depending on the study’s population, criteria, time-period studied, and other factors. Higher end estimates by Kleck and Gertz show between 1 to 2.5 million DGUs in the United States each year.:6465 Low end estimates cited by Hemenway show approximately 55,000-80,000 such uses each year. Middle estimates have estimated approximately 1 million DGU incidents in the United States.:65 The basis for the studies, the National Self-Defense Survey and the National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS), vary in their methods, time-frames covered, and questions asked. DGU questions were asked of all the NSDS sample.
Due to screening questions in the NCVS survey, only a minority of the NCVS sample were asked a DGU question. Besides the NSDS and NCVS surveys, ten national and three state surveys summarized by Kleck and Gertz gave 764 thousand to 3.6 million DGU per year. Hemenway contends the Kleck and Gertz study is unreliable and no conclusions can be drawn from it. He argues that there are too many “false positives” in the surveys, and finds the NCVS figures more reliable, yielding estimates of around 100,000 defensive gun uses per year. Applying different adjustments, other social scientists suggest that between 250,000 and 370,000 incidences per year.
Does anyone know of a source that gives the steps to form one of these crazy groups? I would love to get some bucks from Soros or Bloomberg to add to my retirement bucks.
Stupidest woman on the planet.
Great Cam & Company interview with Chief Craig.
Gun grabbers just aren’t finding fertile ground in Detroit.
Uh, have you failed to notice just who’s in the WH currently? LOL! (That is if he isn’t vacationing or golfing or fund raising...)
aha! You right .but he doesn’t yet have bad guys with guns in every house and every church and every business ..why? Because there are still good guys with guns in many houses, churches, businesses ..
“When it comes to common-sense gun laws, moms will never give up”
Weve also celebrated important victories to keep the places where we take our children out to eat safe from guns. After a group of heavily-armed activists staged a demonstration at a Chipotle in Dallas over the weekend, we launched a petition to ask Chipotle to take action. Hours later, the company asked their customers to leave their guns at home. This follows in the footsteps of Starbucks announcing that guns are no longer welcome in its stores and Jack in the Box announcing it would enforce a prohibition of guns in its stores.
Poll: Do you support open-carry gun laws in restaurants and retail stores?
71% have answered yes to the poll; not what they were looking for.
CNN mass media? LOL! I know what you’re saying though. The few no/low info’s just eat it up regardless of any facts.
Anything is possible when you get to redefine the meaning of words. Anybody with a gun = bad guy, so, by definition, no good guy with a gun, period.
They called themselves the “reality-based” community. That may be true on another planet, but not on Earth.
So, the poll run for shannontwats ain’t quite turning out to be the desired outcome. Will an instagram or tweet turn out the zombie poll voters for her?
On June 7, Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America founder Shannon Watts said a good guy with a gun “has never” stopped a bad guy with a gun.
Obviously this dumb ass never heard of World War II.....
Tens of thousands of good guys with guns stopped ten of thousand of bad guys with guns. It is recorded history lady you can check on a computer yourself........
