Blog Link- Auditing Shooting Rampage Statistics

August 5, 2012

This came from auditing-shooting-rampage-statistics by Davi Barker

and I re-post this introduction without permission.  What Davi says is profound; armed citizens save lives when time is critical.

“I posted a graphic on Facebook claiming the average number of people killed in mass shootings when stopped by police is 18.25, and the average number of people killed in a mass shooting when stopped by civilians is 2.2. I based it on 10 shootings I found listed on some timeline somewhere. …  So, I started over, only much more meticulous this time. I compiled and analyzed 93 shootings, noting my methodology, and I am now prepared to present my findings, complete with links to the data. But here’s a spoiler… It’s not that different. The average number of people killed in mass shootings when stopped by police is 14.3 The average number of people killed in a mass shooting when stopped by a civilian is 2.3.”

Give Davi a read.
