Gun Group Reenacts 'Charlie Hebdo' Massacre

The Truth About Guns, a pro-gun group based in Texas, recreated the Charlie Hebdo attack in France that left 12 people dead. The group reenacted the attack using paintball rounds to try and determine if putting an “armed defender” into scenario could have saved lives. Unfortunately, the “armed defender” died in nearly every single situation. Of the 12 people to participate, nine were killed in the office without managing to take out either of the attackers, just as the scenario played out with the unarmed journalists in Paris. Only one female volunteer managed to survive the simulation by running from the set, leaving both of the attackers unharmed. Two of the volunteers managed to take out a single gunman, as footage captured by shows. However, none of the participants were able to stop the massacre by taking out both attackers.
