    Hi all, it's probably been mentioned in a few threads before, but i'd like to compile a list of school shootings or other violent occurances in schools that were stopped by staff, visitors, students or someone else who had a gun legally, whether they were already carrying or they had to retrieve such from their car or office. Thanks in advance.

    The only ones I can think of are the law school in Virginia (forget the name), and the high school in Pearl, MS.

    Then there was the incident in Texas last year where a nutcase with an AK clone was shooting at people outside a courthouse. A guy with a carry permit tried to take him down, but the nutcase was wearing body armor, and shot and killed the permit holder. The police credited the permit holder with stopping the shooting, though.

    Not a school shooting but one heck of a good CCW case. Happened last year.

    The incident in VA was at the Appilachin School of Law about 4-5 years ago. Two students ran to their cars and retrieved their handguns and held the shooter for police. IIRC, both had VA CHP's. HTH
