Included in the Mass shootings stopped by armed citizens article are three shootings stopped by off duty police officers with their personal handgun. I would contend that these are equivalent to CCW holders, as they have about low percentage of legal problems as CCW holders, and do not have the organization and backup of the police department when they confront the shooter, as do officers who are answering a 911 call.

The links are active at the site.

And the ones that occur where guns *aren’t* banned are the 10% that are stopped by armed citizens...

Paroxetine (Paxil)

Fluoxetine (Sarafem)

Sertraline (Zoloft)

Citalopram (Celexa)

Escitalopram (Lexapro)

This is the problem not guns.

When swift armed intervention occurs theses shooters invariably. One shoot themselves,get shot or surrender with out a shot fired.

They do not get into firefights with who ever opposes them.

They are not trained combat solders or LEOs who continue under fire.
