As predicted, gun grabbers are using the New York City Police Department’s failure to exercise discretion and restraint in the arrest of boss killer Jeffrey Johnson as a reason why civilians shouldn’t be armed. Newsday’s Alvin Bessent: “If highly trained officers shooting on a crowded street during a tense crisis inadvertently hit nine bystanders, it’s not likely that untrained civilians blasting away in a dark, chaotic theater, or any similar situation, would have been more accurate.” Blasting away. Love it. Or not. More importantly, is that right? Are armed civilians more dangerous than cops? I’ve seen both at the gun rage. Obviously, it’s not a representative sample; my ballistic BFFs are trained (if not DGU experienced) civilians. That said, if we’re talking about an actual gunfight—rather than the perp’s perceptions or the cops’ ability to call-in the cavalry—I’d rather have one of my gun buds by my side than a cop. You?
