The FBI has been under a great deal of fire over recent years as many on the right feel the organization has developed a pronounced leftward lean. Examples of that include the FBI not prosecuting a certain presidential candidate for an unsecured email server in their home, as well as investigations into the other presidential candidate’s supposed links with Russia…that never showed up.
Of course, many would disagree that these present any evidence of bias at the FBI.
To that end, John Lott is at it again, this time by examining a recent study conducted by the FBI that claimed only a small percentage of active shooter incidents have been stopped by armed citizens. There are some serious irregularities in how things are classified here.
The FBI’s first report claimed that only once from 2000-2013 did a concealed handgun permit holder stop one of 160 reported “active shooter” attacks. These active shooter attacks include any time a gun is fired in a public place, even if no one is injured or killed. They exclude gang fights or attacks that arise out of other crimes such as robberies.
