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

Dec 15, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Free Republic

Backers of laws that let pretty much all law-abiding carry concealed guns in public places often argue that these laws will sometimes enable people to stop mass shootings.

You rarely, if ever, hear the media reporting the defensive use of a firearm.

It seems that most of the mass murder scenes are gun free zones. So much for gun laws working...

Exactly, it's rare a gun owner is able to stop a shooting rampage because most of them happen in areas where guns are banned.

Also, guns are always demonized by the newsmedia, forcing most people to avoid the benefits of guns.

There is a reason we never see mass shootings at police stations, gun ranges or firearms stores. Peopl who want to commit mass murder are going to go someplace they know they are safe from being shot at.

I'm sure if you asked an antigunner if they could name just one gun club that was robbed at gunpoint - you'd hear a cricket chirping.

When have you EVER seen concealed carriers portrayed in a favorable light by the MSM??? You MIGHT see something in your local news, but NEVER on a national scale.
