AL: Self defense expert: Guns don't necessarily make you safer

Self-defense experts say arming yourself won't necessarily make you any safer, and in fact could do the opposite.

Personal protection specialist Cameron Bucy said even if you're armed, a gun should be used as a last resort. Statistically, your best bet is to run.

He says statistically shooters only hit a moving target 30 percent of the time, so you have a 70 percent chance of survival if you flee.

70% after the first shot...
49% (70% of 70%) after two shots...
35% after the third...
24% after the fourth...
.
Simple math, folks.

And what percent pursues you instead of standing there watching you run away?

Bucy makes some very sweeping statements but I don't see any sign of sources being cited to back them up.
That's not good enough for me to believe what he's alleging.
