Professor unclear on the concept
This guy thinks CCW holders are a threat, not understanding they are among the most law-abiding people anywhere. Apparently can't separate tools from actions.

In other news, the shooter at the Empire State building shot his boss, period.

All others wounded were shot by the police. As one commenter put it, if a couple CCWs shot that poorly, the antis would say it was proof that no one but police should be armed.

I should probably add that I don't necessarily blame the officers for their shooting skills, since it is very difficult to shoot well under stress. It is unfortunate that the confrontation took place in such crowded surroundings.

As a number of people have also said, it's hard to shoot well when you're saddled with a [no $#!+] twelve pound trigger pull.

When I was an armed guard at NRO HQ (back before we even admitted there was such a place) we carried S&W model 64 "student" guns. They were built by trainee gunsmiths and had a pull estimated at least 12 lbs. That's a gun designed not to go off accidentally, rather than to fire when it should.
When I bought my Glock 22 it came with an NYPD trigger, which smjayman swapped for me before I ever tried to fire a live round through it.

I had my student today try a couple of double-action shots out of my Taurus DA .22 revolver. He promptly went back to single-action.
