The NRA Thinks More Guns Are The Answer. Bless Their Hearts. Then Watch This.

The NRA announced that it wants to have more guns in schools to solve the problem of gun violence. Back in the day, ABC's "20/20" did a test to see if they could train a bunch of college students to have fast enough response times to shoot an attacker. They found students with a variety of levels of gun experience, including some real enthusiasts. Guess who fared the worst?

So unless we force everyone to be in the military and have regular shooting practice, this probably ain't gonna help.


Unfortunately ABC's old videos don't work on mobile devices. We apologize for the inconvenience, but this video seems kind of important.

Vauhxx Booker, a civil rights activist from Bloomington, Indiana, claims that a group of white men threatened to lynch him during an altercation on July 4 near Lake Monroe, but he was saved by onlookers who intervened.

Video taken during the incident shows he was held down by a group of men who pinned him to a tree in a wooded area. Booker says that while he was being held down, the men threatened to break his arms, repeatedly said "get a noose," and told his friends to leave the area.

The men later let him go after being confronted by onlookers who gathered at the scene.

The incident began, according to Booker, when he and his friends were making their way to the lake to see the lunar eclipse when a white man on an ATV told them they were trespassing. When Booker and his friends continued to walk to the lake, the man on the ATV and his friends allegedly shouted "white power" at them, which is when things turned violent.
