Guns save lives. You wouldn’t know that from reading your newspapers or watching TV. If you only get your news from the mass media and popular entertainment, then you might think civilian gun ownership cost lives. Here is the important news you didn’t see. I showed you that guns save lives, but I’m going to go a step further.

Armed civilians stop mass murder.

There. I said it, and now I’ll show you that it’s true. First we’ll look at the collected data and then review some of the many examples. Sure, you can invent all kinds of possible problems that armed citizens might face, but this is what we saw over the last two decades.

Jacob Paulsen did a great job reviewing and expanding the FBI data on mass murder collected since 2000. If you think back, then you’ll remember that almost everything changed since the millennial celebration. The children who grew up with 24-hour-news have become adults. Today, they get news updates every minute on their phones. Over the same period, the number of people who legally carry a firearm in public surged from one million to 30 million citizens. There were also 283 mass murder attempts during that time. Armed civilians were present in 33 of those attempted mass murders. That is consistent with the number of concealed carriers in the general public. .......

For those who seek ever more 'gun control' and infringing on rights, the mere mention of 'guns save lives' is invariably met with total disdain. They fail (or pretend) to not acknowledge such because to admit that would run counter to their agenda, but the truth is there for all to see if honest. Fire must be met with fire.
