In this book Countering the Mass Shooter Threat, author Michael Martin analyzes data gathered from 48 mass shootings that have occurred since Columbine to determine what can be learned from these tragedies, including whether a reduction in magazine capacity or the banning of any class of firearm, would have changed the outcome. Martin also looks at whether gun-free zones figure into the planning of these mass murderers, how victim response at any mass shooting has made a difference and if universal background checks or other proposals by gun-control advocates stand a chance of stemming the current trajectory of these shootings. Martin summarizes this data with a comprehensive plan designed to eliminate the scourge of these shooters once and for all.
A comprehensive playbook for every house of worship, school, business and family in America.
