This post was originally written on April 21, 2015.

In a Washington Post in an April 20, 2015 column, Eugene Volokh asks: “Have civilians with permitted concealed handguns stopped such mass shootings before?” We provided Volokh with a list of cases that used permitted concealed handguns.

Below we have collected news stories on more of these cases. There is no reason to believe that this list is comprehensive given mass public shootings that were stopped by concealed handgun permit holders get little media coverage. Even in the mass public shootings that got extensive news coverage, only a few of those stories would mention that it was a permit holder who stopped the attack and they frequently get other facts wrong. In addition, there is no attempt here to list here the vast number of defensive gun uses that are reported daily in the US. This list here focuses on cases where permitted concealed handguns stopped mass public shootings.

The Democrats would like us to believe if we just surrender our guns to them they will keep us safe by keeping illegal gins out of the country. Just like they keep illegal drugs out of the country and for that matter keep out illegal aliens. I wonder if they would also insist illegal aliens give up their guns. The only people they actually keep safe are themselves.

Nobody notices an ounce of prevention. Same with Republicans doing their job.
