When numbers don’t lie, we can sit back and relax a little more, knowing that our decision to carry a firearm is even more valid than ever.

The website concealedcarry.com recently put together some nice infographics that show statistical data released in an FBI report on active shooter events.

In a nutshell, of the 283 total incidents in an 18-year period, an armed citizen was present at 33. Just shy of 12%.

Of those 33 incidents where an armed citizen was present, they were able to stop the incident from continuing 75.8% of the time, and additionally were successful in reducing the number of lives lost 18.2% of the time.

Also, of these incidents, there were ZERO times when an armed citizen injured or killed an innocent person.

Take a look at the infographic below;
