Interviewing a student advocate of concealed carry on campus, Good Morning America's Bill Weir fretted today that it could lead to an "OK Corral" situation.
Weir spoke with Mike Guzman, a student at Texas State University and a leader of a national group called Students for Concealed Carry on Campus. Weir's opening gambit: "Are you carrying a gun now?"
Guzman said that he was, and does so everywhere but on campus. Sort of made me wish Guzman had asked Weir if he was unarmed.
You can view the video of the entire interview here, but I'd focus on this bit of editorializing by Weir:
BILL WEIR: The idea if there's two or three people in an economics class, and a gunfight breaks out, are you really saying, it's sort of like we're devolving to the OK Corral here.
Which raises the question posed in my headline. Do Weir and ABC believe that the current situation, in which killers can shoot defenseless students like fish in a barrel, is preferable to the prospect of an OK Corral in which the innocent at least have a chance?
