Nick Leghorn sets up a scenario using a set that supposedly dupes the floor plan of Charlie Hebdo's offices.
Two volunteers play the Kouachi Brothers, armed with AR15 rifles with Simunitions. One volunteer plays either Hebdo himself or his police bodyguard with a SIG P226 with simunitions. Add 11 bystanders unarmed.
They run the scenario at least 9 times. Even with the fiction that the players already know in advance an attack will occur, the solo armed defender "fails" to survive. Gee, two on one odds and solo pistol vs two rifles backed with ISIS quality training.
The NY Daily News and others draw the obvious conclusion; because one defender cannot succeed in defending himself with the least effective firearm, the pistol, there is no reason to arm citizens with ANYTHING and the public is better off unarmed.
The Rabbi Abraham Cooper:
Oh, for Rao's sake! POLICE ARE CITIZENS JUST LIKE THE REST OF YOU! I'm not showing up with explosive batarangs, trick arrows, speed-of-light running or eyes blazing with my red cape flapping in the breeze. I'm showing up with a pistol, some mags, a radio, and some armor. Maybe a rifle too. And many, many friends also armed with pistols, rifles and body armor.“As to personally being armed, such a move COULD help when a Jewish person is threatened by thugs, but won’t help if G-d forbid, Charlie-type terror attacks are launched,” Cooper said.
“Bottom line: Only the Police and intelligence can protect France’s Jews from terrorism,” Cooper said, noting that it is expected French authorities will continue boosting defenses. “If the government doesn’t, then there is no long range future for Jews there.”
Now, can anyone work out a win from this Kobayashi Maru?
