Should neighborhood watch leaders have guns?

  • The George Zimmerman trial has a lot of people talking about neighborhood watch groups & guns
  • The Crime and Punishment Museum puts these volunteer leaders to the test

In the midst of a crisis, would you be able to shoot someone?  The Crime and Punishment Museum in Washington, D.C., puts people to the test with 100 different high pressure scenarios. With the help of a video simulator, volunteers are given a real gun and told to shoot if they feel their lives are in danger. 

Investigative journalist Michelle Sigona took three members of different neighborhood watch groups to the simulator to see how they would react.
