75% Of The Time An Armed Citizen Stopped A Mass Killer

A review of the data compiled by the FBI on mass shootings focused on incidents where an armed citizen intervened. In 283 cases documented over 18 years, an astonishingly low number of 33 featured a private citizen with a personal firearm.

While statistically too low to draw meaningful conclusions, the dramatic impact on the act of committing mass murder deserves recognition. In only 2 of those 33 reports was the armed citizen unable to affect the perpetrator (roughly 6 percent). In 25 of those crimes the man with a gun stopped the killer (over 75 percent of the time).

  1. I read this earlier and thought it was 94%. Which is astonishing when you consider the skill level of the average ccw. Which is even more astonishing when you consider they’re a lot better than LEO. Even better Google rounds spent in a gun fight, CCW vs LE. It’s like 2 rounds to ah shit I’m out of ammo. That what get s LE in trouble with BLM. Just keep slapping that trigger dick wad. Having said all that bull shit I think stricter criteria should be put on CCW’s. But then I think they should be given El Carte El Blanche to carry where ever the fuck. CCW’s are the answer to stopping crime, mass shooters, terrorist attacks, and World Hunger. I’m not joking one bit. There’s a relatively new group/term emerging, particularly on IG, The Modern Gunfighter. What was old is new again. There was an article on Western Rifle shooter sometime ago which I can longer find “Your Own Personal Gun Fight”. A great article on preparation for your greatest perceived threat. A great consideration. Prep and practice.

  2. Fortunately, “mass killings” are (statistically) a rare way to perish. Far more are killed by “legal” means. I painted my assault hammer black tonight.

  3. Ummm Brad… WTF? stricter, STRICTER, STRICTER?? criteria on citizens when you have stated that LE fucks up more often???? FUCKING REALLY? Are you drunk? Did you reread your post before submitting it? What the fuck are you suggesting?

  4. @B_Brad ~ a comment on your LEO/Gubmit ‘spray & pray’ theory … I agree that LEO’s, once they unholster their weapons are trigger-happy sonsabitches … they can afford to be. once they present their firearms in a ‘situation’ it is of little consequence to them to start pulling the trigger … just a little more paperwork & the rounds are paid for by the taxpayers

    consider, the CCW’s are much more frugal w/ their own ammo than the LEO’s, because they are paying for their own … & the LEO’s ammo!

    Trigger control and feeling the reset is a big consideration to putting rounds on target and to stop spraying.

  6. … & commenting on the article …

    I am actually astonished that of all the mass-shooting events (catalogued & categorized through the august body of the FBI … they NEVER lie, or have political motive – oh no!) there were actually 11.8% citizens that had the wherewithal to be allowed to fight back!

    (I just realize that is an astonishing statement to say “allowed to fight back” … that is what we have become … the Eloi)

  7. @B-Brad ~ my original premise still stands
    “Trigger control and feeling the reset is a big consideration to putting rounds on target and to stop spraying.” …. agreed … as I tell pups, align the sites on target, squeeze, don’t jerk, re-align … 5-shot drills

    Yes sir. And that drill will put you ahead of 99% of LEO. I’m honestly not trying to disparage LE here. There’s a problem. I’m being truthful.
