Excellent Analysis of Armed Citizen Defense to Mass Shootings and Media Undercoverage

At the Classically Liberal Blog there is an excellent analysis of media coverage (in this case the lack therof) of how armed civillians helped stop ongoing mass shootings.

To have it most simply put, the killers do not stop killing until someone with a gun arrives to stop them. Having someone with a gun at the location, able to respond dramatically cuts down on the killers ability to assault more potential victims as the killer has much less time than would be otherwise available to him - i.e. while the police are informed, respond and finally react to the situation.

Read the descriptions of the incidents on Classically Liberal, then question why there is a clear lack of coverage of these heroes who helped stop the mass-kilers from continuing their attack.
