Do civilians with guns ever stop mass shootings? Yes. I’ve been compiling a list as well.
Open carrier stops a mass murder.
I have a list. John Lott is compiling one too.
A PA doctor used his gun to shoot a crazy person who shot his case worker. Good thing the good doctor had the sense to disregard the hospital’s “no firearms” policy: Employees are prohibited from bringing firearms or explosives of any kind into the workplace.
A mass shooting averted. Add it to the list.
9 documented at Buzzfeed. Here’s some more.
An interesting read: The average number of people killed in mass shootings when stopped by police is 14.29 The average number of people killed in a mass shooting when stopped by a civilian is 2.33 Timely, since there was a mass shooting stopped by an armed man recently.

My referral logs tell me that two posts of mine (Don’t Scare White People and Mass murderers v. armed citizens) are apparently getting quite a bit of play via email. Anyone know why?
Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
