Also, I'm sure it was an oversight but you called the shooter a victim. But besides, you do realize that the shooters kill themselves, give up or leave when confronted by armed resistance don't you? They aren't giving up just because.
The problem with all these shootings the element of surprise blows being prepared out of the water and even if you have someone with a gun nearby, by the time they react many people can already be dead.
Even in Jonny's example shown here, every one that actually had a shooting take place and not everyone did, by the time someone realized what had happened and reacted the shooting was over and the victim had either left the scene, killed themselves or was apprehended by a law enforcement officer or in a few cases some civilian with a gun. In all the cases if the shooter was going to shoot, they shot the the people they wanted to and were done before anyone did anything.
