According to a breakdown the simulator depicts an attacker as being:

  • Caucasian 60 percent of the time.

  • African American 15 percent of the time.

  • Hispanic 15 percent of the time.

  • Asian five percent of the time.

  • Middle Eastern five percent of the time.

    Bearing Arms:

    North Carolina’s Guilford County Sheriff’s Department has a new way of preparing for different gun-related scenarios. The department just received a new gun simulator to replace an older, 1980s version.

    The simulator comes with 700 pre-recorded scenarios for deputies to work through. Each scenario plays on a projector screen. The deputy has to use a gun with a laser to shoot.

    “Because if you can prepare people on what can happen and what may happen, it’ll give them a better response,” Sergeant Larry Grittion said.

    Guilford County Sheriff’s Department has also opened up the simulator to first time gun owners and those who are undergoing training requirements to obtain their concealed carry permit.

    The decision for the simulator was made in April. The Guilford County Board of Commissioners voted 7-2 to purchase the training device for the Guilford County Sheriff. More
