Ben Shapiro: The reason that so many kids die of gun violence is because “kids cannot carry guns”

BEN SHAPIRO (HOST): And I would note, on a logical level, when he suggests that more children are dying by gun than on-duty police officers, maybe one of the reasons for that is because -- you know, I spot a couple of differentiators. One of them is that on-duty police officers carry guns, kids cannot carry guns nor should they, obviously. But, the point is that people who are protected tend not to get shot as often. Even in the most dangerous situations they tend not to get shot quite as often because they can protect themselves. So he's making directly the case that he supposedly opposes. 

This, by the way, is the case that Democrats are consistently making, is the idea that even a lawful, law-abiding person who knows how to use his gun isn't capable of stopping a bad guy with a gun - which, of course, is untrue. I'm unaware of any situation in which the threat of a good guy with a gun has not ended a situation with a bad guy with a gun. Do folks on the left just think that bad guys randomly give up their guns when they get bored or tired? That's not how any of this works.
