FBI ‘Active Shooter’ Report Supports ‘Good Guy with a Gun’ Claims


A recently released report by the Federal Bureau of Investigation credits armed citizens with saving lives. “Active Shooter Incidents in the United States in 2016 and 2017” was released  in April, and provides hard evidence that gun-grabbers who ridicule the efficacy of keeping and bearing arms are demonstrably agenda-driven liars.

“The FBI has designated 50 shootings in 2016 and 2017 as active shooter incidents,” the report summarizes. “Twenty incidents occurred in 2016, while 30 incidents occurred in 2017.

“The FBI defines an active shooter as one or more individuals actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a populated area,” the report continues. “Implicit in this definition is the shooter’s use of one or more firearms. The active aspect of the definition inherently implies that both law enforcement personnel and citizens have the potential to affect the outcome of the event based upon their responses to the situation. “

And how have citizens “affected the outcome”?

“Eight shooters were stopped by citizens,” the report documents, up from six credited in a 2014/2015 report:

  1. I think Michael Huemer makes the same point.

  2. They didn't specifically parcel out what percentage of the incidents occurred in posted "Gun Free Zones", events where concealed carry is expressly banned but otherwise legal in the State, or in States/Cities that are "May-issue" but are notorious for making it difficult, if not practically impossible, for citizen's to be granted permits or carry throughout their day. If I get the time this weekend I might do the research to figure that out.

    1. That would be great and please let me know. Thanks.
