Do Civilians Armed With Guns Ever Capture, Kill, or Otherwise Stop Mass Shooters?

So it appears that civilians armed with guns are sometimes willing to intervene to stop someone who had just committed a mass shooting in public. In what fraction of mass shootings would such interventions happen, if gun possession were allowed in the places where the shootings happen? We don’t know. In what fraction would interventions prevent more killings and injuries, as opposed to capturing or killing the murderer after he’s already done? We don’t know. In what fraction would interventions lead to more injuries to bystanders? Again, we don’t know.

If a nut draws a gun in front of a American with CC and is killed (or wounded), then if that Armed American is not there would that nut commit mass murder, we don’t know. But why take the risk?

Thinking the Unthinkable

In the wake of another horrific national tragedy, it’s easy to talk about guns. But it’s time to talk about mental illness.

 

Update: Michigan approves concealed weapons in schools, churches

“If you have pistol free zones they are actually mass murderer empowerment zones,” said Steve Dulan, attorney for the Michigan Coalition of Responsible Gun Owners, who represents sportsman clubs throughout Michigan backing the bill.

“If you actually look at the history, even over the past 10 years in the US, you find that maybe all but one mass shooting has occurred in a so-called gun free zone,” he added.

This is sanity, this is heading in the right direction. This will be condemned by EVERYONE is the media.
