Saw an interview from a guy who has investigated something like 37 mass shooting attempts. Conclusion. Most attackers shoot themselves when they know someone with a gun is near.

See mall shooting in Oregon recently. A young guy with a concealed weapon just pointed it at the shooter and the piece of **** shot himself. The shooter would have shot plenty of more people until the police arrived.
More weapons in more people's hands may prevent mass suicide killings (I think it's a reasonable argument to make), but do you think it will reduce the overall number of firearm related deaths? Accidents, crimes of passion, hero types shooting kids for stealing purses, etc.?
