Guns Stopped Mass Shootings

Guns Stopped Mass Shootings 12 Times by Good Guys With Guns.

Hopefully as you read this article, you will begin to see a pattern start to emerge that Guns Stopped Mass Shootings from becoming a lot worse these 12 times. We all want to find the “Magic Bullet” to prevent these mass shootings from happening in the first place. Stricter gun laws, banning firearms, harsher penalties for committing crimes and carrying a firearm without the proper credentials are all ideas behind how to stop these mass shootings from ever occurring, but lets be realistic; Regardless of what legislation we pass, there might not be a way to prevent these tragedies from occurring, but we can definitely lower the number of causalities by doing one simple thing:

Encouraging civilians to legally carry a firearm.

If we look at the facts and statistics and make decisions based on real data, without all the bias media lies, we can see that when there are good guys with concealed weapons who have the correct training to use that firearm are present when a mass shooting occurs, there are less casualties because that person had the ability to take heroic action and protect himself and his fellow men and women. Here are the top 12 times good guys with guns stopped mass shootings from becoming much much worse. Ask you self: if we encouraged every American to carry a concealed weapon. “How many lives could we save if and when another shooting like San Bernardino took place?

1. Pearl High School

Guns Stopped Mass Shootings

Oct. 1, 1997
Luke Woodham fatally stabbed his mother at home before opening fire at his high school, killing two students and injuring seven others. The attack was stopped when Assistant Principal Joel Myrick retrieved his .45 caliber handgun from his truck and confronted Woodham, detaining him until authorities could arrive. This is a case were Guns Stopped Mass Shootings from becoming worse.

Myrick’s action stopped Woodham from going across the street to the middle school as he had planned.

2. Parker Middle School

April 24, 1998
A 14-year-old student showed up to his middle school dance carrying a .25-caliber pistol. He opened fire inside the dance, killing one teacher and wounding another as well as two students. The rampage ended when James Strand, owner of the banquet hall the dance was happening in, grabbed his personal shotgun and confronted the 14-year-old killer. Strand held the teen at gunpoint for 11 minutes before finally getting him to drop the weapon and lie on the ground and searching him for additional weapons. Without this law abiding citizen, the Guns Stopped Mass Shootings wouldn’t have applied here.

The gunman was then apprehended by other students.

Gross and Bridges lost valuable response time accessing their handguns because of the law school’s standing as a gun-free zone. Guns Stopped Mass Shootings in the past, why would we encourage gun free zones where we are sitting ducks?

She fires five quick shots. Murray falls backward. Assam moves to the middle of the corridor and rushes forward. She’s a few dozen feet from Murray now, exposed in the middle of the hallway. “Drop your weapon, or I will kill you!” she yells. Murray sits up to face her. He’s still holding the rifle. Boom-boom-boom. Bullets rip past her and pepper a wall. While Murray shoots, Assam fires three times.

Through the haze of gun smoke, Assam sees the man struggling on the floor. He props his head against a wall. Her weapon is up, trained on the man. She sees his hands moving near his shoulder. He’s trying to pull the pin on a grenade. He’s going to kill everyone around here, Assam thinks. She instinctively steps back and fires two more shots.

Police and hospital staff hail Dr. Silverman as a hero and credit him with saving dozens of lives.

So what do these Mass Shootings show us about how Guns Stopped Mass Shootings?

We can see that responsible gun ownership by law abiding citizens prevents zero threat, and can can definitively say that guns stopped mass shootings these 12 times. We need to understand in this country that the threat is here and is not going anywhere anytime soon. Instead of trying to BAN ALL GUNS, we should encourage more law abiding citizens to CARRY MORE GUNS.

The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is with a good guy with a gun.

Based on all this overwhelming evidence, why would be want to ban legal firearms?

Political pressure and leftist thinkers believe if we ban all guns, violent crime will decrease. Just remember: CRIMINALS DO NOT FOLLOW LAWS. So regardless of what anti-gun legislation is pushed through congress, it will do absolutely nothing to stop mass shootings, and based on this article, actually cause more deaths because there will be no good guys with guns to stop the mass shooting before the police have time to respond. Its time to stop listening to the leftist propaganda and look at the facts! GOOD GUYS WITH GUNS STOPPED MASS SHOOTINGS 12 Times! We need this to happen in every mass shooting every time. This is the only way to make our communities safe, arm and train every citizen and our communities will be safer as a result.

Thank you to: Hunter Roosevelt for the great article

Liberty Civil Defense Ammo For Sale

Liberty Civil Defense Ammo For Sale


Liberty Civil Defense Ammo Review

Whats up with this aluminum hollow point ammo I keep hearing about?

When I first heard about Liberty Civil Defense ammunition, I was one of the first to dismiss this new light aluminum ammunition as another marketing gimmick, but the ammo intrigued me so I decided to do some research and see what this ammo was all about. I immediately noticed how light the bullets when compared to the other personal defense ammunition on the market. 50 grain for a 9mm bullet? What were they thinking! But then after reading further, I saw how fast this projectile traveled. 2000 feet per second! I was impressed. My Five seveN ammunition travels about 2300 feet per second out of a 5” barrel, and its a 27 grain bullet with a rifle style cartridge. I began thinking back to high school physics which reminded me, MASS x VELOCITY = MOMENTUM. So a lighter bullet traveling twice as fast as a heavier bullet should have a similar total energy disbursement and therefore similar results right? This is what I was determined to find out.

What is Liberty Civil Defense Ammo?

Civil Defense is the company’s line of civilian ammunition. It is designed to quickly incapacitate a violent attacker by causing massive hemorrhaging, while still allowing for enough penetration to reach vital organs and crush bones. These ammunition cartridges use a monolithic copper bullet that is lighter a normal bullet of the same caliber. These bullets achieve extremely high velocities from standard handguns. Unlike some of Liberty’s predecessors that have been offered in the past from companies like Corbon, Liberty’s bullets use a deep hollow point design which upon impact of soft tissue, forces the bullet to fragment causing massive damage.


I read a few different articles around the internet and each article had a different opinion on the effectiveness of this ammunition, but none of these geniuses actually did any real world testing with the ammunition. They just assumed that because of the lighter weight, the bullet would have a hard time penetrating barriers such as thick denim, glass, car doors and other dense materials. “you need to have 18 inches of penetration according to the experts” I kept hearing. 18”? I don’t know about you, but shoot me with a bullet that penetrates 18” and the person who was unlucky to be behind me is also going to end up with a hole in them as well. So after hours of research, I was no closer to finding out the answer to my question. “Is this ammo any good?” So instead of waste anymore time with wanna be internet ballistics guru’s, I decided to pack up my toys, grab some of the most common barriers one would encounter in a real world scenario, and head out to the Florida Everglades to set up my own test of this super light super fast ammunition. I was finally going to actually figure out whats really going on with this Liberty Civil Defense Ammo.

To prepare for the shoot I gathered the following barriers to test the ammo on:
  1. 3/4” Sheet Rock to simulate a home wall
  2. 1/2” Sheet Rock again to simulate a wall or similar barrier
  3. 1/4” Particle board  which could simulate a table or some light barrier
  4. A door from a Volkswagen  Jetta
  5. Automobile glass
  6. Thin sheet metal to put behind the barriers so we could see what the exit holes looked like.


We also wanted to test the most common calibers that the everyday person would be carrying in their firearm, so we brought four different firearms that each shot a different caliber.

  1. Keltec .380 1.875” barrel with Liberty .380 50 grain bullet at 1500 fps
  2. Beretta Nano 9mm 3” barrel with Liberty 9mm 50 grain bullet at 2000 fps
  3. Sig Sauer P229 .40 S&W 4” barrel with Liberty .40cal 60 grain bullet at 2000 fps
  4. FN FNX .45 Tactical with an Advanced Armament Shepard suppressor  with Liberty .45acp 78 grain bullet at 1900 fps.


For some added fun I cooked up some ballistic gel in my kitchen and it turned out pretty cool. The gel was created to mimic a human torso. We added a heart with strawberry syrup in the middle, some wax ribs, two kidneys and some lungs all to see what this liberty ammo would do to what organs. The ballistic gel I created we later found out was to small to really be of any value to the test. The size of the gel was too small to really use behind the barrier so we could try and capture what would happen to the bullet after it went through a barrier. Due to my lack of experience with ballistics gel and the correct sizes needed for experiments like this, we quickly realized that my 14” x 9” baking pan mold was no where near the amount needed to be large enough to make the gel effective in taking hits and being able to then use it for accurate readings, but we put that behind the barrier anyway to see what would happen for my own amusement. For our follow up video I plan on obtaining a large block of actual ballistic gel.


We all agreed that the toughest barrier we brought with us would be the car door, so we set that up first with one 1/2” sheet rock layer about 1 foot behind the car door, and then behind that we set up a few more layers of the 3/4” sheet rock about 1 foot apart from each other, so we could see how much penetration would occur once it hit that hard first barrier, the second dry wall barrier and then if it continued through, how far it would actually travel and the effects. We figured because of the weight of the bullet, a few barriers should be more than enough and we would be able to capture some of the projectiles from the dry wall boards in the back. Guess what? We were completely WRONG! The ammo was so effective in penetrating, that it actually went right through every barrier we put up, which really took us all by surprise. After reading those articles online that this ammo might have a hard time with only a couple layers of denim, I thought a car door and multiple sheets of thick sheet rock would be overkill. We witnessed first hand the ferocious truth that is hidden inside these shiny light weight cartridges.

We conducted the test as followed: One shot at the door with each of the calibers, tracking each shot and seeing how each caliber performed. First the Keltec shooting the .380, then the Nano with the 9mm, the Sig 229 with the .40 S&W and finally the FN FNX with the .45ACP. Each round had no problem being extremely accurate and hitting the door right where I aimed. After the first round of four shots, one from each gun, we walked over to check the results. EVERY SHOT went right through the door, in some cases even hit the steel support beam inside the door, and exited the other side with no problem at all. When we pulled back the Door, we saw the same thing happen to the dry wall, every single round penetrated the door, the particle board, the sheet metal and the 3/4” drywall behind it with ease.

After seeing how easily the ammo penetrated all the barriers we setup, we decided to stack all the barriers one by one next to each other for the last four shots. We shot the same four rounds and saw the same results. The 9mm, .40cal and .45 had the most penetration going through every barrier we put up. The .380 was the only round that stopped after the door, 3/4” dry wall, the particle board, the sheet metal and then finally came to a stop in the fifth layer of 3/4” drywall.


Only two of the rounds fragmented and those are the rounds that actually hit the ballistic gel. One of the design characteristics of Liberty is that the projectile remains intact while shooting through a barrier, door, window, whatever it may be. Once the hollow point hits soft tissue, it fills the tip of the ammo forcing the bullet to expand and break into fragments. These fragments blow up almost like a hand grenade causing about a 4.5” wide area of extreme energy transfer with shrapnel. The remaining bottom portion of the bullet stays as a slug and penetrates about 8-12 inches depending on the caliber and what barrier it travels through.

The closest ammunition that could be compared to the design of the fragmenting around is the RIP G2 pre-fragmented hollow point. If we tested the RIP G2 in the same fashion, the first hard barrier would cause the round to break apart and fragment too early. How effective can you really be with ammo that breaks before reaching its target? The ability to penetrate through hard barriers first and then fragment only upon impact of soft tissue, paired with the speed and light carry weight of the Liberty Civil Defense Ammo round makes this ammo far Superior than any other personal defense round on the market.  The fragmentation of this ammunition is what makes it the most deadly ammunition available to the civilian market hence the companies slogan “ONE AND DONE.” One shot anywhere in the torso and this fragmenting bullet more than likely will hit one of the vital organs which is one of the ways death occurs from a gun shot wound to the abdomen.


There are a lot of other features that the Liberty Civil Defense Ammo  has to offer which makes it the best personal defense ammunition for your everyday carry.

  • REDUCED CARRY WEIGHT: If your like me, you carry at least a compact to full size firearm on a daily basis, all day, everyday. After a couple hours of carrying a fully loaded Sig P229 with 17 rounds of regular defense ammo your gun becomes more of an annoyance then it is a comfort. The weight of the firearm has a direct relationship to how long you can carry comfortably for, how often you will actually carry the gun, and allowing the firearm to become another part of your everyday wardrobe. The weight allows you to stay with the compact or full size firearm we all love, but still keep the weight at a manageable amount.
  • REDUCED RECOIL: one of the hardest things I try to teach my students when taking their Concealed Carry Class is the ability to take follow up shots, better known as “Double tap” Because the bullet is super light, the perceived recoil of the firearm is cut by about 30%. This helps you stay on target while taking multiple shots.
  • REDUCED OVER PENETRATION: The fragmenting ammo ensures that once that bullet hits its intended target, it will not come out the other side. Some high velocity FMJ have the ability to enter and exit the back side of your target, endangering whoever happens to be behind your target. The fragmentation width is about 4.5” inches wide while the base of the ammo penetrates about 12” inches.
  • 3X TERMINAL EFFECT: simply put, more knock down power. I want to be able to stop my attacker in his or her tracks immediately and no matter what. If my attacker is on Crystal Meth and in an adrenaline fueled rage a .380 shot from a 2″ barrel isn’t going to stop him. I want to literally knock him off his feet and put him down on the ground. The Liberty Civil Defense Ammo gives you that knock down power.
  • 2X VELOCITY: Liberty Civil Defense Ammo is about twice as fast as the best hollow point on the market. Speed x Mass = Momentum which delivers the Terminal effect or how the projectile acts once it hits its target. Because the ammo is twice as fast, it delivers much more kinetic energy than a slower heavier round. The more energy being transferred the more damage will be done to the target. The larger caliber rounds will actually throw the target back like you see in the movies. Although the over penetration is reduced because of the deep cavity hollow point design, because of the speed it has been tested and proven that it will penetrate all different types of barriers such as what we tested today: Automotive Glass / Windshield, Car doors, Dry Wall or Plywood, and also most important Heavy Clothing such as denim, leather jackets and sweatshirts.
  • MADE IN THE USA: Lead Free Projectile made here right in our own back yard, Sarasota Florida from a Monolithic Copper and then Nickel Plated to give it that beautiful shiny aluminum look that is safe to handle and wont go bad.


So, Should I Buy This Liberty Civil Defense Ammo or not?

Based on the findings of my experiment and the science behind the Liberty Civil Defense Ammo, my conclusion is that Liberty Civil Defense Ammo makes some of the best personal defense ammo on the market. Its right up there with Hornady and Speer in my book. I did find an interesting test conducted online that took two six pound roast beef loins and shot each with one round of each bullet. The first with Liberty Civil Defense Ammo and the other a Hornady XTP 147 grain round . The difference in damage to the meat was quite dramatic. The Liberty Civil Defense Ammo caused massive damage through the meat, while the XTP punched through the meat with a comparatively small wound track.

I carry this ammo on a daily basis and absolutely love it. The weight makes you forget that your even carrying a firearm at all. In a situation where I  had to use my firearm to protect my life, you better believe the Liberty Civil Defense Ammo is and will remain the first choice of me, my family, and my customers for daily carry inside and outside the home, as well as inside the gun shop as well. This ammo is designed to work every single time you pull the trigger, and whoever is on the receiving end of that bullet doesn’t have a chance because of the 4.5” wide terminal shock and shrapnel which will put down anyone in the world with one shot. Stock up on as much of this ammunition as you can, it doesn’t go bad and the performance is by far the most impressive personal defense ammunition available to civilians I have come across.


Prices fluctuate from place to place, and most of these ammunition websites will trick you into thinking your getting a great deal on a box of ammo for $18, but when you go to check out they add $15 in shipping and handling, which most people don’t realize.  I recommend if you want to save money, place an order with us on FloridaGunClassifieds.com. We don’t play tricks with our prices, and head to head our prices for Liberty Civil Defense Ammo is always lower than any other site in the country. We have the best selection of New Guns for Sale and Used Guns for Sale as well.  We’ll ship the ammo directly to your door step and always have someone available to answer any and all of your questions regarding the ammo or anything else firearm related.

Story: My Concealed Carry Firearm Saved My Life

Firearms Blog, Uncategorized August 25, 2014

florida concealed carry

Why Every American Should Carried a Concealed Firearm

“Why do you have to carry a gun?”

“What are you so afraid of?”

“You must be really paranoid?”

“If you pull your firearm, you must use it! are you ready to kill another human?”

These were some of the things I hear constantly from my Liberal friends. They live in their own bubble where the sexual assaults, rapes, and murders are just something you see on the nightly news, but could never happen to them and so they cannot understand why I have a Concealed Carry Firearm. I want to know that if god forbid I ever was confronted with one of these situations, I know I have a damn good chance of making it home that night. I choose to Carry a Concealed Firearm because I do not want to be one of those people on the 6:00 news that did make it home. They just don’t understand that criminals do not care who you are or what you have, some people in this world are just ruthless and will do anything to satisfy their evil desires.

My story is one of a woman traveling alone, in the middle of the day, on a rural highway and came up behind an older model, slow moving pickup truck with a middle aged man driving it. I noticed after a mile or two that he was making sexual gestures in his side mirror at me. So, the next opportunity I had to pass him, I did. Should be the end of that story, right? Well unfortunately it got much worse. Now he was tailgating me down the hill coming into town and now had my whole rear-view mirror to work with. He started taking off his shirt and looked to be touching himself. I was mortified to say the least. I blew through a yellow light and turned onto a busy highway and he stopped for the red light. I pulled into a gas station not far down the road because I needed to use the restroom and wanted to get something to drink. Not the best idea, looking back. I waited with my doors locked until I saw that he had moved on and passed me up. I had parked nose in facing the convenience store and he pulled in behind me and blocked my car in. This is when I grabbed my Concealed Carry Firearm a walther pk380 and had it ready to go. He came up to my door and reached for the handle only to see me holding my Concealed Carry Firearm in my hand and turning to aim at him. He just had to see the gun in my hands to send him scrambling back to his vehicle to hurry and drive away. I called in the plates to the police and it was all over with but I was on high alert for several days following. I have told my story countless times and about 70% of the time, someone will ignorantly say to me, “if you have to pull your firearm, you must use it!” I’m sorry but these people are very WRONG! In my case, I had several things working against my being able to shoot.

// ]]>

  1. He was at an angle next to my vehicle that I was not able to get a clear shot.
  2. Second, there were a lot of cars and people around and if I missed I could have hurt someone else who was not involved.
  3. Also, he was not carrying any kind of weapon to assault me with

You always have to consider the aftermath of shooting someone in self defense. If all things were working together, I was prepared to shoot but my situational awareness kicked in and it was not a good option. There are other instances of not shooting but being able to safely mediate a situation just by having your firearm in hand. I recently watched this video which started my train of thought on writing this piece. Not every situation where you are forced to pull a firearm needs to end in tragedy. Post by Urban Moxy – Concealed Carry Handbags The other example I can recall is the Clackamas mall shooting in Oregon a couple years ago. This was where I grew up so it hit very close to home and I visited the mall and paid my respects to the people who lost their lives on that tragic day. It could have been much worse than it turned out though. I think it was only reported locally that the shooter ended up killing himself because he saw a man had a pistol locked on him but was unable to shoot him because of all the people around and was not comfortable taking the shot at the risk of hurting another innocent person. The media didn’t spend very long on this story because it was very close to the Sandy Hook shooting but I think it was also because it had an outcome that didn’t agree with the anti-gun narrative. This man is the hero in my book! Concealed Carry
