You are quite right here, and it is why I think it is necessary to insist on -- to keep banging on -- the statistic that also has been posted here: that is, that the immediate response of a lawfully licensed and armed CCW citizen at Clackamas mall did cut short the spree, and reinforces the up-side part of the statistic that
The average number of people killed in a mass shooting when stopped by a civilian is 2.3,
as opposed to
The average number of people killed in mass shootings when stopped by police is 14.3;
which was shown in the article previously posted on Free Republic:

Of course, the down-side statistic was reinorced by the Newtown, CT incident -- sad, but true to form.
This concept needs to be impressed on every anti-gunner, every educator/teacher, and every federal/state/county legislator you can reach; as well as being in the Gun Facts talking points locker of every Second Amendment pro-gun citizen.
This also ought to be in the formulation of police response team doctrine.
I’ll Bump that.
