NRA’s Colion Noir Corrects NPR Claim That Armed Dallas Cops “Made No Difference”

posted on July 15, 2016

In an interview with NPR on Wednesday, NRA Commentator Colion Noir described his own experiences as a young black man who carries a firearm legally. After touching on issues of race, Philando Castile and the responsibilities of being armed, host Steve Inskeep steered the conversation toward the attack on Dallas cops.

“NRA supporters have argued many times if people in that crowd had guns, they would save lives. Here is an instance where every single officer had a gun, and a number of people, even demonstrators in the crowd, had guns. And it made no difference. What does that do to the NRA's classic argument?” 

Noir corrected the claim that armed cops had “made no difference”: “How many cops would have been killed if none of those officers had guns? … they stopped him. He had to fall back into a position because cops were returning fire. So imagine how many people would have died.”
