I’d like to take this opportunity to vividly illustrate a minor flaw in Wayne LaPierre’s argument.

The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun who knows how to use it, and this Reading, PA concealed carrier certainly did:

The armed men took cash, cigarettes and lottery tickets before exiting the store. Outside they were confronted by the concerned citizen who told them not to move and that he was calling police.

Adams said a struggle ensued and the suspects took out their weapons. The citizen, however, was also armed and fired at the suspects.

The suspects were both shot in the chest and died at the scene.

The entire crime inside and outside the store was apparently captured on security cameras, and police do not expect to file charges against the concealed carrier.
