I'm curious about that, too. No question he's a hero, and that he saved a lot of people at risk of his life. But the story assiduously avoids the question of whether he shot at, or maybe shot, any of the terrorists. The gun always seems to be tucked into his belt, if you believe the writers.
I suspect that they admire his heroism, but don't like the idea of a gun actually helping in such a situation.
Re my post. It wasn’t Fisk. It was Tyler Hicks.
Is there any place that lists mass shooting attempts that have been successfully prevented by people with a gun? As in, situations where someone planned a Va Tech/Sandy Hook/Columbine type shooting and it was stopped by ordinary citizens with a gun? I think it would be great to have such a list available to shut up the gun braggers who always presume that ordinary citizens with guns in these situations always make things worse. Does anyone know of a site that has that kind of list?
