American gun rights activists have reenacted the Charlie Hebdo shootings, in an effort to show such devastating bloodshed could have been spared if one of the magazine's staff had been armed.
The bizarre exercise, organised by The Truth About Guns, saw volunteers play the part of staff at the satirical publication which was targeted by Islamic extremists Said and Cherif Kouachi on January 7.
But in the reenactment one of the staff was given a paint ball gun, which they were instructed to use when "extremely well trained attackers" - also armed with paint ball guns - burst in on the set up.
The exercise was carried out nine times, but the armed "staff member" was never successful in overpowering both attackers.
Now, let's listen to Nick Leghorn spin the whole thing in their favor all the while claiming to represent the truth in The Truth About Guns.
I can't believe he actually said "if we could save just one life." When gun control folks use that one it's mocked mercilessly. What a despicable spin doctor. The victims at Charlie Hebdo were just as prepared for an attack as the players in his reenactment scenario were.
