Good Samaritan Gun Use - Views - Good Samaritan Gun Use

It is not remarkable that someone such as Mark Wilson was there at the scene to stop the attack before police arrived. For example, in about 30 percent of the multiple victim public school shootings that have captivated Americans’ attention starting in 1997, people used guns to stop the attacks before uniformed police were able to arrive on the scene. Few people know about these cases because only about one percent of the news stories on these cases mention how the attacks were stopped.

Usually I look long and hard at the circumstances surrounding these high profile shootings, but I have been busy this week and missed it until I saw this article by John Lott.
