Downright Ignorant: Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense Founder Claims Good Guys with Guns ‘Have Never’ Stopped Bad Guys with Guns

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.

Blackwell said:

I want to challenge you on something Shannon. Wayne LaPierre, executive director of the NRA, after Sandy Hook, said the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. And I think, essentially [what guns rights proponents are saying] is [they] want their wives to be able to carry–to be the good person with the gun. Is there an example in school shootings or a mall shooting or these public facilities, where that has been wrong? Where a bad guy with a gun has been stopped in any other way or by a person other than a law enforcement officer with a gun or by killing himself?

Watts responded: “This has never happened. Data shows it doesn’t happen.”
