7 Mass Shootings That Were Stopped By Lawful Gun Owners

3. An unidentified man saved the lives of several people inside the Farah Barber Shop in West Philadelphia, Pa., by shooting a 40-year-old gunman on March 22, 2015, police told NBC 10. Several people, including children, were inside the shop when the man took out a gun and opened fire. Fortunately, a passer-by pulled out his gun, ran into the shop and shot the gunman before he could kill anyone.

“The person who responded was a legal gun permit carrier,” Philadelphia Police Captain Frank Llewellyn told NBC 10. “He responded and I guess he saved a lot of people in there.”

“I guess” is pretty wishy washy. It would seem obvious that he did save a lot of lives.

6. An armed likely prevented a shooting rampage at Bonnie’s Food and Spirits, a bar in Plymouth, Pa., in September 2012. William Allabaugh shot a man in the head after being asked to leave the establishment. Mark Kytor stopped Allabaugh by drawing his gun and shooting him. Kytor may have saved many lives because police found an extra clip of ammunition in Allabaugh’s pants, The Citizens Voice reported.

Typically inaccurate reporting. I would assume the shooter had an extra magazine, not a clip. I guess it’s too much to expect the news media to at least be a little familiar with the difference. “This is my rifle. This is my gun. This is for fighting.”

So, yes, guns can save lives and armed citizens can prevent mass shootings.

When seconds count, the police are minutes away. WE, THE PEOPLE are the FIRST RESPONDERS.
