Train the way you fight. The training that the students were given was conducted using holsters carried openly. I saw no video throught the story indicating that the students were trained how to draw from concealment. Also, they did not train wearing gloves/protective facemasks.
Although the story did make one strong point, the training provided exceeded the requirements of more than half the states that issue CCW. Don't get me wrong. I am NOT a supporter of stronger mandatory training requirements, but I do feel that each person bears a personal responsibility to obtain professional, competent and effective training.
Overall, it was an ABC News hackjob created with a specific outcome in mind from the start.
