“Gun’s don’t kill people, people kill people - guns just allow people to kill lots and lots of other people really, really quickly”

Two mass shootings were stopped by private citizens with guns that I can think of just off the top of my head. One was the Paducah school shooting where the vice principal fetched a pistol from his car and confronted the shooter, and the other was the shooter who had killed people at the Youth With A Mission campus in Colorado and then tried to shoot up the New Life Church (where Ted Haggard was preacher) the next morning. He was shot by a female ex-cop parishioner who brought her handgun on suspicion after hearing about the shooting the night before.

An ex-cop is not an “ordinary citizen.”

Also, being able to name these incidents “just off the top of your head” does not mean they are common. They may stand out and be memorable precisely because they are rare.

re: #3 Tigger2005

An ex-cop is not an “ordinary citizen.”

In most States they have the exact same rights as any ordinary citizen, and the Christopher Dorner case shows the danger in treating them as some kind of super citizen with enhanced rights.
