A Mass Shooting That Didn’t Happen Today

A man walked into a Fort Worth church with a shotgun and began shooting people. He was immediately killed by another church member (a retired FBI agent) carrying a pistol.

Aside from being an example of why people carry, the incident also highlights the statistics of how these are counted, Because only three people were shot, this doesn’t meet the definition of a mass shooting. So, because the shooting was promptly stopped by an armed citizen, gun control advocates won’t ever see it as a “mass shooting stopped by concealed carry.”

Edited to add: unedited surveillance video of the incident

It looks like one of the initial victims may have tried to draw a weapon also. Definitely more than one armed citizen present. After the assailant is shot, you can see at least five members pull out pistols.
