    Omg this is hilarious. But the comments are even more hilarious. 😃😃😄😅👍🇹🇷🇨🇵🤣😕🤩

  • Rafael Rodriguez

    Of course, most citizens have no choice but to face an armed guy with nothing. Most citizens are unarmed and the shooter is the anomaly. The question you ought to ask is whether we prefer to face the armed guy unarmed or with a weapon. Those FBI statistics are kind of cherry-picked. I am sure the same can be said for victims of shark attacks. Most of them do not have a harpoon but had they known it would happen they would not get in the water without one or not at all.

  • Jonathan Nicholls

    So you want to get good guys with guns with lots of training and expertise in the right place to help against bad people?

    That’s called law enforcement!

  • Morgan

    Maybe it’s because almost all mass shootings happen in “gun free zones” where it’s illegal for good guys to carry guns.

  • Tatonka Smith

    The alternative is to be a guy without a gun while the bad guy has a gun… I guess we have to assume that the bad guy took hundreds of hours of training, so we are just shit out of luck?

  • Random Stuff

    Do you know what an absolutely kills me about some Americans p the fact they have to dress the part, why does this guy have to dress like a cowboy to be an instructor what the f***🤦🏻‍♂️lol people are funny.

  • Peter Wuwei

    Jordan is good and he's very funny. His wry sense of humor is very creative. I liked the one where he put Trump supporters who supported "extreme vetting" to the test.

  • Frank Harrod

    We can just make everybody wear hats like they did in the good old days: black hat = bad guy, white hat = good guy. I know, pretty racist…

  • JayFrost

    So calling the guy in the hat a CeeLo Green impersonator is racist coming from a white guy is it not?????? 😀 i guess you dont follow the same standards you want us to follow though RIGHT?? so why does he look like him anyways??? because of his skin color right????? you pos liberals are all the same…..liars and hypocrites

  • Seb 8969

    "I was ready to handle every crisis situation"
    "You're not ready handle every crisis situation"
    "Who the fuck are you!?"
    🤣🤣🤣

  • Just_ JunePierce

    I haven't seen this Jordan guy before, but he is hilarious. This story was well done, funny and information. Great job. Everyone.

  • Mark Mention

    Wyoming has some of the loosest gun laws in the country, the highest percentage of guns per capita, and the lowest percentage of crimes per capita, so I still like guns.

  • hunter nolasco

    If you count police officers as “good guys with guns”, which they are. The stat probably goes up to 4.5 out of 5. But of course they won’t mention that. Do some critical thinking when watching media. Don’t be sheep

  • Dylan Fagundes

    Statistically the FBI national statistics agrees with the “good guy with a gun” motto… And there have been many mass shootings thwarted and/or ended due to good guys with a gun…so I’m going to listen to a statistic that has thousands of man hours and evidence collection behind it instead of a bunch of “comedians” who watch Vox…

  • HawtChili

    this show never fails to ammuse me with its pure immaturitry and liberalism how you gonna make fun of law abiding gun owners who on average stop bad guys with a gun 500,000-1,000,000 times a year according to the fbi data base and cdc just incase you idiots wanted proof. this kind of shit isnt comedy its arrogant and gives guns and gun owners a bad wrap.

  • Trevor Mention

    This is what happens when someone untrained thinks they know how to use a gun in real life 8:38.

    There are no red arrows to point out the bad guys and you can't restart the mission.

  • atome 365

    roughly 11,000 lives have been lost through non-suicide deaths involving a firearm each year. […] The CDC report said, "Studies that directly assessed the effect of actual defensive uses of guns (i.e., incidents in which a gun was 'used' by the crime victim in the sense of attacking or threatening an offender) have found consistently lower injury rates among gun-using crime victims compared with victims who used other self-protective strategies. … Almost all national survey estimates indicate that defensive gun uses by victims are at least as common as offensive uses by criminals, with estimates of annual uses ranging from about 500,000 to more than 3 million per year, in the context of about 300,000 violent crimes involving firearms in 2008."

  • The History Critic Guy

    Super easy in Florida to get a gun licenses. Wow and this came out 2 years before Parklands that’s really eerie

  • Owen Counts

    Everyone with a gun would create chaos. How do you know who is the good guy and who is the bad guy. It would just cause a mass shootout.

  • Blah Anger

    That is kinda hopefull in some way, there are people willing to risk their own lifes by literaly throwing themselfs at an armed person to save others.
    That's a good thing right?

  • Aivars Račinskis

    Can you fly an F35, drop some bombs at the shooting range, land, pass out with the canopy opened, and when you are sober, you're good to go?

  • Jamie Engelbretson

    Does the fact that they refer to it as "a weapon" give an insight into the logic of who's hands they belong in?

  • Christine Still

    As a cop, I was required to train one full day each month. Some were daytime some night (w/ red lights & sirens blaring) & after a 1/4 mi run…to elevate heart-rate!

  • Alfonso Garcia

    It does not add properly. The police ends up killing two people. The bad guy with an automátic weapon and a wannabe héro good guy with a hand guy, both dead.☠☠🛌🚷

  • pspicer777

    Recent events make this all the more relevant. We need to do so,ethimg about the number of guns and how easy it is to get them.

  • Merciful King

    Black people better not try to be a good guy with a gun…

    A black people with a gun will automatically be a bad guy with a gun.

  • Fusion illusions

    Guns kill people. Keep saying this ..Guns kill people. Ban guns in America. Look at Singapore it's a perfect country and everyone is happy and rich. Cops don't carry guns in Singapore. You never police driving around or walking around.

  • Dominic Tumminelli

    What is this supposed to prove? That some moron can pick up a gun and make himself look like an idiot?
    https://www.heritage.org/firearms/commentary/why-these-defensive-uses-firearms-should-disarm-second-amendment-skeptics
    Yes you read that right. Thing is with guns Being legal we are going to have more gun deaths. That's just a fact. The overall crime rate drops significantly with it. Australia outright banned guns, and gun deaths went down, but violent crime shot through the roof.

  • D DiGiorgio

    This is good. Once again, Trevor effectively uses humor to make an important and convincing point. "A good guy with a gun….." – it's not that simple. More guns means more people getting shot – possibly event the good guy.

  • Andrew Sheley

    One fundamental problem with your stats. It doesn't take into a account the bad guy that gets taken out before he is able to kill more than 4 people so it ends up NOT being a mass shooting. Happens all the time across America.

  • Drecon84

    You give more people guns, more people will die, and not just the bad ones. More good guys will die as well. Good take home message.

  • Laszlo Bujdoso

    The recent shooting in Dayton Ohio, where the police was able to take out the shooter in 30 seconds yet the shooter had killed 9 people, shows how the good guys with a gun are definitely not the solution. I still wonder what the solution is….

  • WeSpeakYourNames

    how cringe, even from a satirical point of view. him calling the other guy an ass hole at the end was too much.
    am i the only one who can barely stand to watch someone be so disrespectful? its not funny, its cringey af

  • Jin Kusanagi

    Ok, well what if it's 4 bad guys with guns against 1 good guy with a hand gun, who just happened to be there, and then the police arrive, and they shoot the wrong guy, because the bad guys were impersonating as police officers, or the good guy with a gun shoots the police thinking it was more bad guys.

  • william reid

    I dont like how they take one statistic and use that to push their gun control ideology. Statistics only work if you compare multiple statistics. Like if 3 percent of shootings were stopped good guys with guns does this stat includ shooting ended by police. What about the statistics on what percentage of home invasions are ended by a good guy with a gun. It's just wrong. If you dont look at everything you will always draw the wrong conclusion.

  • James Purcer

    The people I work with are gun worshipers. SMH. Some of them actually go to games where they can shoot people. That's some really sick shit.

  • James Yap

    The ONLY way to stop a bad guy is a good guy with MORE and BIGGER guns!!! Let’s all start shooting at each other America. You really need more Clint Eastwood. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

  • Roasted Locust

    The problem is that most "good guys" with guns want everybody else to just assume that anybody trying to buy a gun and to carry it in public is in fact a good guy with a gun. Why in the hell should anybody trust a complete stranger with a weapon designed to kill dozens of people within seconds? And when they start appearing in public in larger numbers, your head will have to be on a swivel, because you never know when one of these "good guys" will flip the switch and become the bad guy. If you saw a guy with a sword in public, you'd probably keep an eye on him, but gun-nuts think everybody should be comfortable knowing there's at least one potential time-bomb in the room with them.

    Besides, most gun owners only shoot at stationary targets that have a backstop behind them with few distractions and no innocent civilians that might get shot when they're trying to be the hero. If you have a concealed carry permit or open carry, you should have to carry at least $100,000,000 in insurance. I believe you can buy liability insurance if you carry, and if you are smart enough to have gun liability insurance, you probably don't have enough – if you shoot at an active shooter and miss, hitting somebody next to them, they should own your house, your car, and your guns, as well as getting payment from you every month for the rest of your life. If you manage to hit the shooter and the bullet goes through them and hits an innocent person behind them that you didn't consider, they should still own you. And if a "good guy" shoots you, sue the shit out of them. And if a criminal shoots you and you find out a legal gun owner sold them the gun the criminal used, sue them as well. They may not understand the pain of loss when somebody they know dies from careless or malignant gun owners, but they'll at least feel the financial pain caused by their actions.

    "You're not ready to handle every crisis situation."
    He should have said, "You're not ready to handle ANY crisis situation."
    I'm glad they showed the school demonstration, because I've always been concerned about what happens if you have several "good guys with a gun" in a large crowd or a building like a school where a shooting occurs. They might all end up shooting each other, and the last one standing gets shot by the police while the original shooter gets away! In fact, all they accomplished was to confuse police so that the original shooter could get away — or worse, kill couple of cops who are looking the wrong way.

  • Janusha

    The moment he would have looked at me with a straight face and unironically said "muzzle discipline" to me, I would have had 2 choices… Walk out or beat him to death with that toy gun.

  • Janusha

    The sheer dumbness of american gun-mythos is staggering. Its hard for educated people from civilized countries to watch this and grasp that this is not a parody. This is not meant ironically.

  • thebes1

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b9NsPIxBzEE&list=WL&index=6&t=0s Wow he was sooooo funny talking to the instructor har har hardy har . What a idiot…..

  • Antonis J.kondilis

    Carrying a gun you just double the chances to be killed !!! By a bad guy with a gun or a good guy with a gun !!!!!

  • Terry Terry

    Yep, clearly shows that even the biggest idiots can buy a gun if they are not criminals. I personally take my chances – it if gives me 1% better chance to survive in an active shooter situation, I take that chance…
