Behold The Absolute Worst Anti-Gun Argument Ever Made

There was a terrible shooting at a Waffle House in Nashville on Sunday morning. A man walked into the restaurant and killed four people with an AR-15 before a hero, James Shaw Jr., tackled him and wrestled his gun away. The final death toll is tragic. It could have been a whole lot worse, if not for the courage of Mr. Shaw.
Of course, it always takes courage to fight back in these situations. But to fight back with your bare hands, against a guy with an AR-15, requires true heroism. It is not something the average person would do, nor is it something we should expect the average person to do.
Some gun control advocates see it differently. The standard gun control talking points do not apply in this case because the shooter's guns had already been seized by authorities prior to this massacre, so the gun grabbers took a different approach this time around. Many of them immediately pointed to Shaw as proof that you don't need a gun to defend yourself against an armed assailant. The Parkland activists, in particular, were quick to seize on this idea. As Emma Gonzalez put it:
"The local police say a man at the scene wrestled his gun away - looks like you don’t need to arm a teacher (or a resource officer) to stop a shooting. There goes the sales pitch for @SmithWessonCorp."
