Just recently, in Early Texas, armed citizen Vic Stacy shot and stopped a deranged man who had just murdered two neighbors and was firing at police with a rifle. Stacy made a very long shot with his revolver, three times as far as the perpetrator was from the police officer, who had an AR-15 type rifle.
There are several documented cases where armed citizens have stopped mass attacks by gunmen. Let me list a few: The Pearl, Mississippi school shooting was stopped by the vice principal Joel Myrick with a Colt .45, The Appalachian School shooting was stopped by two students with handguns. Both of the above incidents were stopped by the armed citizens threatening the shooter without firing.
The mass church shooting in Colorado Springs was stopped by the shooter being shot by a church member with a CCW permit.
Fer Fucks sake , who let you out of that Mexican Insane Asylum ?
It's like in Pulp Fiction, when Samuel L Jackson pulled the gun on the robbers in the resteraunt.

couple of my friends have both CPLs and medical cards. some guy won a case in court against the ATF that had both last year.
LEO possess ar-15 rifles, but actually fire them only a few times, even at the range. In fact, they are limited to the number of rounds they can fire at the range, usually under 20.
When I go, I fire off 50 rounds at least. (Of .223 or .30 Then pull out my .40 and rattle off 100 rounds, then 100 rounds or so of .22
LEO, in general, are a bad shot.
Stacey with the revolver was probably shooting a .25 -- a fairly common round, and revolvers tend to be pretty accurate. Those and 1911's.

Hopefully bubba doesn't shoot one of them, especially while in a dispensary, or he's fucked for life.
But multiple cops with a long barrel gun should have been able to hit someone that was engaging them, at least before someone with a pistol was able to iron sight snipe the guy. I was watching gangland once, and the police were out maneuvered by 2 gunmen, simply because one had been trained by the military. So with his strategic training he and the other guy won by taking cover, using cover fire, and getting closer and closer to the cops, which made them more frantic. And I would assume that even riot police or swat are trained in traditional roman type battle, full frontal volley, with some range weapons hidden or in the back. So all people need to learn is ambush tactics, and regrouping. If occupy had planned to run, split into two or three groups, then meet at a bank to protest, they wouldn't have been eradicated.

But he did not get as far as he had hoped. He was stopped when off-duty police officer Kenneth Hammond of the Ogden City Police Department who was at Trolley Square having an early Valentine’s Day dinner with his pregnant wife. When they heard shots, she called 911 and he drew his weapon and confronted Talovic. He was joined by Sgt. Andrew Oblad of the Salt Lake City Police Department. They pinned down Talovic, stopping further deaths, until a SWAT team from the Salt Lake City Police Department killed him.
Hammond, a man with a weapon, was credited with saving “countless lives.”
In Aurora, Colorado, there were no armed bystanders and Holmes was unimpeded in his deadly rampage. Gun control advocates use the grizzly story of the Aurora movie theater to push their cause. But common sense tells us that it is easier to put guns into the hands of law-abiding citizens and to instruct them in their use than to keep them away from the insane or evil people who perpetrate these shootings.
If the movie-goers in Aurora had one or two armed and trained men or women, the shooting would have gone the way of the Trolley Square massacre, not the bloodier outcome in Aurora.
go home finshaggy you're drunk
