HALF!? This is far too great an omission to be accidental. This false report has been used to minimize the importance of carry (including at an “active shooter” class i took, given by an anti-CCW former cop). The utility of concealed carry is much higher than this fraudulent report held:
For four years, the CPRC has been collecting cases of concealed handgun permit holders stopping mass public shootings. As we will show below, permit holders saved lives in between 13 and 16 cases from 2014-17. This includes the seven cases that the FBI lists, seven cases that should have been included (one of the seven is debatable), and two cases that the FBI had on its list but doesn’t include as instances of permit holders saving lives. Thus, concealed handgun permit holders saved lives in 13.5% to 16.5% of 97 cases.
Source: New FBI report claims that 8% of active shooter attacks during 2014-17 were stopped or mitigated by concealed handgun permit holders, but misses at least half the cases. – Crime Prevention Research CenterCrime Prevention Research Center
