Good Guys Save Lives, but the FBI Can’t See Them
U.S.A. – Dr. John Lott issued another stunning report. Dr. Lott at the Crime Prevention Research Center (CPRC) said there were “massive errors” in the FBI’s reports on attempted mass murderers. It also says that armed citizens are amazing, though the FBI seems to have a strong bias against counting attacks that were stopped by ordinary citizens. This is what Lott found.
Dr. Lott went back seven years of data and identified 360 “active shooter incidents”, though he admits he probably missed several more. In that data he found 124 times where an ordinary armed citizen stopped the attacks. Over that same time period, the FBI identified only 252 active shooter incidents, and they could only find 11 examples that were stopped by armed citizens. Those differences are huge. Lott found that “some 34% of the active shooter incidents were stopped by armed citizens, not the 4% cited by the FBl.” This is important because these FBI reports are reprinted as truth in the mainstream
