On Sinclair Broadcasting: Armed civilians have stopped several would-be mass shootings, crime researcher says
At Greenwood Park Mall in Indiana Sunday, an armed civilian was able to intervene just moments after a deadly shooting broke out, saving lives. Despite mainstream media reports claiming this was a statistically unusual event, Dr. John Lott cites research indicating that incidents like this happen more often than people realize. . . .
“In the last year, there have been 10 of these — what police say would have been mass public shootings — that would have been worse if not for the presence of somebody legally carrying a gun. Since the beginning of 2020, you have 23 of these instances that have been stopped,” Lott said. “They rarely get national attention.”
