    Yes, a concealed carry would be effective against a mass shooter. Mass shooters usually shoot places where they know there is little to no resistance. A person responding to an incident immediately will throw them off. Make your shots count, if you don't more than likely the shooter will become more erratic and dangerous. However, during the first few moments you will have the advantage of surprise.

    I will never give in to something that goes against my beliefs. I will die before I fold, because if you can't keep true to yourself what's the point of being a man.

    Like Sen. Rand Paul allegedly said,

    Disturbed shooters “aren’t so disturbed that they’re going to shoot up the sheriff’s office. They’re showing up where there is no self-defense.” Senator Rand Paul (R-KY)

One day he had a non army passenger on his plane, and the passenger was told they might have to abandon the plane in an emergency, and what the emergency procedures were. An emergency landing was simply not possible due to the terrain below. You stay in the plane you die, simple as that. The guy had never jumped before, and asked if they could ensure that the parachute would open properly and that he would land safely. The pilot replied, "Ensure? no. But you're always free to jump without one and take your chances."
    Anti gunners can claim all they want. Cold hard statistics support CC's being 95% effective in active shooter events. Look it up at concealedcarry.com
