FBI Report: Active Shooter Incidents in the USA 2021

BELLEVUE, WA – -( A newly-released FBI report on “active shooter incidents” in 2021 [embeded below] revealed four of those killers were stopped by armed private citizens, and the Second Amendment Foundation says this is strong evidence the right to keep and bear arms is as important today as it was when the Constitution was ratified more than 200 years ago.

There were 61 active shooter incidents last year, the FBI report said. All but one of the killers were males, and ranged in age from 12 to 67 years. SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb lauded the FBI report for acknowledging the role played by legally-armed citizens in stopping some of these events.

“It is important to acknowledge these citizen first responders, and the countless lives their heroic actions saved,” Gottlieb said.

“Truly, these were good guys with guns.”

“There is one revelation in the report for 2021 that underscores the importance of right-to-carry laws,” Gottlieb noted. “According to the FBI, active shooter data shows an upward trend in such incidents. People have a right to defend themselves and their loved ones if they are caught in the middle of such mayhem. Unquestionably, in each of the four cases cited by the FBI report, lives were saved.”

According to the FBI, in addition to the four perpetrators killed by armed citizens, 30 of these violent thugs were apprehended by law enforcement, and 14 were killed by police officers. One was killed in a vehicle accident during a law enforcement pursuit, 11 others committed suicide, and one remains at large, the report notes. In 2020, the FBI report noted, citizen first responders killed two criminals in the act.

Gottlieb has co-authored several books dealing with armed self-defense by private citizens, the most recent being “Good Guys With Guns,” published by Merril Press.

“Each year,” he said, “there are tens of thousands of cases in which private citizens use firearms in self-defense. The four incidents in which the criminals were killed represent a small but significant part of this larger story. The bottom line is that our Second Amendment rights are just as relevant today as they have ever been.”

Ask yourself why does FBI stage False Flag events ?

Why does the FBI work with Crisis Actors, DHS/FEMA active shooter programs that are then presented as MSM agitprop events that are not transparent to American public ?
Why is there so much willful ignorance ?

The deliberate smupidity is beyond any reasonable human being’s conscious realities’s comprehension.

Silence is consent.

Armed Citizens’ report shows it’s gonna take WWIII to reign-in a broke FBI that can’t even kidnap Witmer, or hide their shenanigans on Jan. 6th.

Never had to use my weapon, but I’ve always said I won’t be the victim of a shooting, just maybe the loser in a gunfight, at the most. That is, unless I don’t see him coming.

If you’re able to, chip in now to the @MNFreedomFund
to help post bail for those protesting on the ground in Minnesota

According to the Hennepin County Attorney’s office, Thomas Moseley, 29, had been arrested and released in cases involving allegations that include damaging a police precinct in August and rioting in December. He was arrested again on Jan. 27, just 22 days after his latest release. During that span, he is also suspected of trying to illegally purchase a gun, and officers are investigating that matter.

As for Moseley, his latest arrest stems from events arising from his apprehension in October, but he is also under investigation on suspicion that he allegedly used straw buyers to buy a semiautomatic weapon from a store on Jan. 7 and Jan. 12. He had just been released in one of his other cases on Jan. 5, jail records show.

Democrats for crime supported by Harris the vice president


would be great if one of her let goes shot her dead


The problem is you can not make this up it was her post on social media which is very disturbing using her title vice president of the united states to promote lawless behavior.
Harris should be removed from office ,as unfit to serve

I understand your feelings, but internet posts that may arguably be promotion of lawless behavior probably does not rise to the level of “high crimes and misdemeanors.
I am not saying that she does not deserve it, but we have to get her on something that meets the minimum standard of impeachment, as required at Art. II, Sect. 4 of our Constitution.


YOU CAN’T FIX STUPID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wild Bill

That is all of philosophy in a nut shell! Ha!


Look at the women who was conversing with the transgender shooter on social media and new that danger was now almost certain. She is back peddling quickly lets she if she gets charged.

Transgenders, people conversing with transgenders, people shooting people, and all manner of evil. What is America’s future?


Problem with these idiot mass shooters are killing innocent people and children, they are Kalese and no balls to really taking out anyone who would really take some thought and balls knowing that they wouldn’t be able to do the mass killing as before they got to do it, they would be taken out!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As my Mexican friend would say, ” Mandalos a chingata!”


sw – a couple of ‘problems’ with your comment (NOT attacking you by any means) – the antis would make her into a martyr while blaming the evil gun and not the dirtbag (likely a dem) and somehow manage to blame Trump.
If she meets an early demise it would be far better if it was a bus or maybe an SUV or even better a hybrid.

More guns = Less crime. Dr. Lott is STILL RIGHT! Active shooters love gun -free zones and we need do do away with that!!


HB,you’re absolutely right about that.


Tell the NRA and Greg Abbott. They support “gun free” zones.

Henry Bowman

The surrender monkey NRA can “Kiss my Glock” as Uncle Ted said; and I never trust any politician to do the right thing save for Lauren Boebert whom we all know is 100% pro-2A! Abbott is just another fracking RINO.


LaPew probly picked up surrender monkey pox at a lobbyist orgy.

Henry Bowman

Bahahahaha!!! Or a Demonrat sex & drugs orgy of the sort that Madison Cawthorn exposed!


led by none other than hunter fjb


Samey same!


would like free gun zones , guard is up grading equipment, you can get their cast offs m16s and all 2nd at its best

Henry Bowman

I’m OK with wearing a kufi, shemagh, caftan, etc. if I can get $80 billion in hardware, ammo, and ordnance!


Where were the armed teachers in Uvalde? I know Texas supports districts having armed teachers and staff, however I believe schools are only allowed a limited number of participants and that districts do not have to participate. Not hard to believe a small elementary school would not have any armed defenders on site.

Going from teaching to bad-ass defender in an instant, facing a prepared attacker (pistol against rifle) is far from an attractive thought – wish I could expect any and every adult to stand up in face of evil against children!


Yep. The place to start is encouraging them to actually do it. That kid was a punk, only successful because everyone was helpless. Resistance doesn’t have to be perfect to be effective. Ultra bad-ass defenders would be nice, but you really just need defenders.


A horrible act of hate the investigation need to involve social media and its role in this event.

The media will suppress damaging information on this shooter who was on social media we have now learned posting weapons pic to her . Her claim so far is she she new nothing while the school district also claimed it to was montering social media.

Pray for the families loved ones lost in Uvalde


newsy showed the community. its all mexican transplants who are obese. all they care about is getting their softdrinks nd potato chips at walmart. i’m bettinng they are all catholic liberals
